Nintendo NES Elite Information
Released by Imagineer in 1991, Nintendo Elite is probably the most remarkable version of classic Elite, as it was written for a machine previously thought only capable of handling sprites, rather than fast-moving wire-frame graphics. Both co-authors are on record as saying that this version is amongst their favourites.
As the NES had no keyboard, an innovative icon-based system was employed, which worked remarkably well and did not hinder the player in any appreciable way. NES Elite had a few enhancements such as pictures of each system and is a very worthy addition to the various versions of Elite.
