Elite plus VGA graphics equals awesome!
While I still have love for the very original Elite for ZX Spectrum, I am not one to sneeze at releases that pay homage to the title, without taking away from it, but adding something to them, instead. Elite Plus adds VGA graphics, to, otherwise, the same sprawling space simulation of almost endless diversity and beauty. As the original did, this one too creates a new universe every time you start a new session, so, from gameplay session to gameplay session, the universe will be a new, completely different one. However, the menus in which you discuss with other races, in which you engage in trade or political arrangements, has been revamped considerably. Also, the ships have gained more color, and more depth, and, the controls too seem to be more responsive than the original ZX Spectrum version. Therefore, if you planed to give Elite a try, this version here is one of the most qualified to offer you a great time, on one hand still being very similar to the original, and on the other, having improved graphics that are much better suited for long playthroughs. Similarly, download Wing Commander 2, another beautiful space trader, exploration game, and fighter.
