Description : Play Elite - the ultimate, award-winning space challenge.
It's an interstellar mind-game with incredible 3D Vector-Graphic space flight simulation. Elite's been called the "Game of a lifetime".
You take command of a Cobra Mk III combat craft and trade with alien cultures on over 2000 planets in eight galaxies.
Pick your destination on the starmap, check the computer's 4-way viewscan - and make your first jump into hypserspace.
Starting with `Harmless' status, you pick up combat skills to win ratings of `Average' to `Dangerous'.
If you can handle it you could become one of the Elite, and win the chance to compete in the Elite World Championships.
It's dangrous all the way.
