    Thank you ..

    I just recall playing a level on Rogue Squadron where you were in a dogfight with hordes of tie fighters over a huge city ( at night I think )

    Just recall playing that level hundreds of time .


    Is there a similar level in one of those two games you mentioned

    Nice find! I'd go with the Scart, much better picture.

    In the eighties, I had an Acorn Electron. I played a hell of a lot of Elite on it.

    Nowadays, I have an ageing but still decent enough gaming PC, and I play a hell of a lot of Elite Dangerous on it. The best part is how much it's like I imagined the Elite universe to appear when I was back blasting pirates in flickering wireframes.

    I'm also fond of Alien Isolation, because it's basically 3D Monster Maze (ZX81, 1981). Really, it is.

    It's amazing how our brains filled in the gaps back then, using the cover art to help conjure up the images that the graphics of the time couldn't muster.

    The cool Robert Holdstock novella that came with the game really helped too.

    Aye, back when games came with manuals and other stuff to really set the tone without charging an arm and a leg for "collector's editions".

    That's why, despite having bought it on digital at launch, I recently bought the No Man's Sky Limited Edition set (for cheap) because it had a novel and artwork books etc which reminded me of the old Elite package.
