Elite is already a classic game on the BBC but its arrival on the 64 is a much more important event. Despite problems of conversion, the game has been improved and is still the same brilliant mixture of 3D space laser combat and trading.
At its most basic the game is a challenge to trade in certain basic goods so as to make enough money to but sophisticated weaponry . Once you've got yourself that armament you can take on the universe in ship to ship combat so as to improve your rating from Harmless to the much sought after Elite.
You begin your quest on the planet Lave in your Cobra Mk III spacecraft. You have one hundred credits with which to buy fuel and a cargo, but that won't buy much (you need to build up your finances very carefully on your early trips).
Once your cargo is complete you're ready to find yourself a suitable destination and get into space where you can get familiarised with your ship and practise flying.
If you cut to the galactic chart screen you'll find yourself in the bottom left of galaxy one. There are eight galaxies in all and 250 planets in each one, so running out of planets is pretty hard to do. You can look at your position more closely on the local chart screen which shows the planets within about seven light years. This is the maximum range of your ship so many journeys will be needed to cross a galaxy.
You can obtain data on any of the planets indicated on the local chart and target them for a hyperspace jump.
Launching your ship takes you out into a whole new world of planets, ships, space stations and asteroids. Ahead of you will be a planet (Lave) and if you use your rear viewer, you'll see the station behind. Left and right scans are also available so you can see everywhere but directly above and below you.
