Post examples of the classic Italian song that celebrates the opening of the first funicular on Mount Vesuvius:
Also post examples of inclined elevators in videogames — bonus points if it’s actually a funicular (i.e. it has two cars that counterbalance each other, so as one goes up the other goes down).
Bionic Commando (Arcade) has an inclined elevator in stage 4:
It’s very slow. And not a true funicular.
Shadow Complex has an inclined elevator very close to the start of the game:
The speedrun I took this screen from has the dude jump down the incline instead of taking a ride, costing the runner 170 HP (which is immediately refilled for reasons I don’t understand (never played it)).
Also, it’s not a true funicular.
Metroid: Other M has an inclined elevator called the Materials Transfer Lift, like halfway through the game in the Ice Area for some reason:
However, instead of transferring materials, it appears to serve as an arena for a fight against some trash mobs and a miniboss. Curiously, the ride seems to end as soon as the miniboss is defeated.
It, also, is not a true funicular.
Are there any actual funiculars in videogames???????????
