elim4p: MAME ROM Information.


Eliminator [4-Player model] (c) 1981 Gremlin.

A large spheroid known as the Eliminator floats randomly about the screen destroying everything it touches. Pilot a space ship around and avoid being hit by it, other players, or drones while fighting.


Sega G80 Vector hardware


Released in December 1981.

Also released as :

"Eliminator [Upright 2-Player model]"

"Eliminator [Cocktail 2-Player model]"

During the attract mode for Eliminator 4-player, it mentions 'Two-players game'. This implies that the 2-player upright model came first, and they forgot to change the attract mode between games.

This was the only '4-players' vector game ever made.


Designed & programmed by : Larry Clague, Mike Hendricks


* Consoles :

Sony PSP (2006, "Sega Genesis Collection")
