Gates of the Ancient - Fans of the classic Elite, might like this new C64 game by Drmortalwombat

With the amount of platformers and shoot 'em ups we've featured on Indie Retro News, you'd probably think this game would be another one to add to a long list of games following that typical genre. But worry not C64 owners! As thanks to a heads up via Saberman, we've been told drmortalwombat has released the rather interesting game of Gates of the Ancient; a fully polygon 3D explorational game with battles and looting on your trusty old C64..... Elite anyone? ;)

Not only can you explore a series of systems and galaxies, stringed together with wormhole technology, with every game being different. But you can also upgrade your ship with various devices, use ancient artifacts, fight pirates, aliens, and ancient robots to keep alive in a hostile universe! Still if you do die in the game, worry not, as a codeword system allows you to bring you worldly possessions into your next incarnation making your ship ever more powerful.
