Thanks for letting me know Steve... not my bag (shock horror.....)

Somewhat more worryingly - Game Guru kinda appeals to the old lazy coder in me. :-\

lol I never really got into Elite either but it's a classic game, and for the price of an old ZX Spectrum Cassette Game (£5.99) I bought-in.   :P

It's taking longer to download than any Speccy game took to load though.   ;D

Is it a remake of the game Elite which I had on the BBC Micro . If so it was one of the best games I've ever played . I'm going back to when I was 17 . A long time ago . I had a ranking of deadly . Anyway if it's as good or better than the BBC game it will definitely be worth playing .

It's a sequel to Frontier, which, in itself, was a sequel to Elite. I've got it in my steam library but never played it much as there's so many keys to remember. Recently bought it on PS4 though, as using a controller is meant to make it much easier to get around.
