Awesome This is just like playing Elite! What an incredible port this is. The UI is fantastic. I believe I'm correct in saying that this is the developers first 3D game, and he knocked it out of the park on his first go. I managed to find the cheat code to unlock the debug menu which gives you access to invulnerability, as many credits as you want, and a whole load of extras including missions. Brilliant game! Thanks to the developers!!
Faithful port but way too hard I played Elite a LOT in my youth. This is a pretty faithful recreation of the timeless classic. Unfortunately it is very difficult to control on my nvidia shield tablet. Flying whilst having to tilt the tablet to control your ship isn't great. I haven't got one of the nvidia game controllers, and don't know if it would improve controllability....
Great port of the classic game. Graphics are amazing and controls easy to use. Just one or two niggles on my phone: sometimes the yaw control fails and won't let me rotate left or right; if you engage the docking computer and then browse other screens then you can no longer disengage the computer.
Incredible game. I played Elite on NES back in the day, and stumbled across Alite recently. Ive put in some hours, and the more I play, the more I love it. Great graphics, great controls. Everything is solid. Anyone who thinks the controls are hard, just remember, this is space, no atmospheric conditions, controls are different. But once you adjust to it, you'll be maneuvering around like a pro. It's a tough/complex game, and I love it.
Just like another game! If this isn't identical to the original then I can't spot the difference, except maybe the graphics! Great to play and works fine. The occasional crash when opening, but always opens second time, is not worth losing a star for. Even better than the version I had on my BBC model B!!
Played elite on first gen home pc. This is everything you could expect. Same game play, same features but vastly upgraded graphics. I particularly like the automatic reset of the tablet play angle every time you launch or hyper jump. Saves the cramp of holding tablet in one position. Online help is well executed. And all the controls are really responsive on the tab pro. Hi res screen aids aiming. 11 out of 10. Brought back memories of the vector graphics original now in glorious technicolor. If there are any weaknesses, they are the same as the original game. Huge grin. A good space game on android. Any chance of doing the same for the wing commander series?
Alite 1.5.8 fixes a minor bug when a missile or fuel is equipped and the game is not saved: they were lost before, now they remain.
