Alite - Classic Amiga Elite gets an Android port!
Only just recently I was talking to a few friends about the original David Braben's 8-bit space combat trading simulator of Elite, and how we've seen a few fan based remakes appear such as Oolite. Yes we've had the modern eye candy release of Elite Dangerous, but now we have come to mention another fan based remake, but this time it's ' ALITE', which is based on the original Amiga version and ported over to the Android. Developed by Stardust as a free fan port of the classic, has been in development for over 2.4 years and is now available to download today.
The developer has said that 'Alite' focuses on the Amiga version whereby you can command your Cobra space ship in a fantastic voyage of discovery, adventure, and trade with a supreme test of your combat, navigational and entrepreneurial skills. You can, just like the original, trade and go into combat, while upgrading your ship with the latest weaponry! As of yet we haven't been able to test the game out as I don't have an Android based device. But if you have one and think it's worthy of a replay, give us a comment and let us know what you think!
