Description

Elite Plus is a VGA re-make of Bell and Braben's space trading flight simulator, Elite. It is an updated conversion of the original that features new graphics and sounds/music.

The novella included with this package is different from the one that came with the original Elite releases. This version includes the story 'Imprint' by Andy Redman, which formed the latter part of the manual, while the original Elite included The Dark Wheel by Robert Holdstock as a separate book.

Trivia

Reception

Generally considered to be the best official version of Elite for the PC since its release in 1991, Elite Plus was the PC variant of choice for most Elite fans until 2001, when the unofficial retro remake Elite: The New Kind was created for Windows by Christian Pinder from reverse-engineered BBC micro source code and circulated over the web (E:TNK was subsequently ported to other operating systems before being withdrawn for legal reasons).
