The man is escorted by a woman who proceeds to tell Lupin and the others that Fujiko has been kidnapped and is being held prisoner at one of the skyscrapers downtown. In order to get her back they must find the fountain of youth. When the two leave, Lupin decides to go and rescue Fujiko himself and sets off to save her. When arrives he discovers that the building is crawling with police, all under the command of Zenigata... so Lupin must enter through the building's ventilation to find Fujiko.


As Lupin, the player must move through each maze-like floors of the skyscraper. The player must search around for the control computers in order to open the doors to freedom. The player also comes across an array of bizarre devices to aid in the quest, including spring shoes that allow Lupin to reach high places and to leap tall walls.
