Archimedes Elite Information

Archimedes Elite was regarded as a huge leap from the original BBC version when it was released in 1991. Utilising the power of the Acorn Archimedes series of computers, it boasted solid-filled ships and objects, greatly enhanced AI and a greater range of ships. Also, for the first time, the player was no longer the centre of the galaxy. Other ships would frequently have their own battles, the police would deal with pirates and the player could watch it all unfold without getting involved, unless they so wished!

Archimedes Elite continued the tradition of packing lots of extras into the box. As well as the game disc, there was:
The Manual
Trading Record Pad
Ship Data Cards
