During the attract mode for Eliminator four-player, it mentions 'Two-players game'. This implies that the two-player upright model came first, and they forgot to change the attract mode between games. This was the only 'four-players' vector game ever made.

An Eliminator four-player machine was shown at the 2003 classic arcade games show 'California Extreme' in San Jose, California.


There are 2 'two-players' revision of this game :

* Set 2 : The oldest version of eliminator had small, fast and accurate firing drones. There was a 'counter' for each player that counted down from 30. Texts on screen are purple.

* Set 1 : The latest versions is the most commonly found version. In this version, the drones are more colorful, larger and dumb. There are no counters, just a score for each player. Texts on screen are green.
