DescriptionFederation of Free Traders is a space simulation/exploration game that is quite similar to an earlier title, Elite. The player is able to zoom around in space while trading goods, undertake missions, or simply explore the galaxy (which consists of over 8 million planets).
There is a significant amount of playable options in FOFT and a considerable attention is paid to detail. For instance, if the player becomes tired of roaming through outer space they skim a planet or two (which plays in a similar fashion to David Braben's other game, Virus).
During the docking sequence players can create their own programs for automated functions, using a built-in BASIC like language called SIMPLE.

Withdrew of all copies of the Atari ST version after releaseShortly after release Gremlin had to withdrew all copies of the Atari ST version because of serious bugs: the copy protection prevented the game from saving to disk, which was undetected in quality control. Beside this and other bug fixes also a Quick-Start Guide to bring you to the first mission was added.
