Here it is-- the game that started a whole new genre of space trading games. Elite gives you complete freedom to find fame and fortune in a vast universe, as a space mercenary. It is difficult to find fault with Elite: from the amazing flight model to the intuitive interface, revolutionary graphics (for its time), great variety of ships, and many other novel ideas, Elite is a true classic. |
Beside revolutionary 3D engine for its time, Elite also boasts a huge universe to explore with many random elements to ensure virtually unlimited replayability. Trade various cargoes, salvage enemy ships, and take on increasingly difficult missions as a mercenary for hire. Ian Bell has recently released the game into the public domain, so go to his site right now for the game and other assorted goodies. Two thumbs up!
