Elite Starfighter is a remake of the classic Elite. Except for technical aspects, it stays very close to the original, meaning there are no missions and no multiplayer. The game focuses on the exploration of about 2000 star systems.

Each system has a space station where the player can land to restock and by goods for trading. There are 21 different ones available; the prices are randomly generated. If the player don't like to trade he earn his money as pirate too and seizes merchant's ships. Of course AI pirates see the player as easy prey and he has to fight them off. With time and money the player can upgrade his space ship with new weapons and shields. Ultimately the goal is to gain the highest rank: Elite. [source:mobygames]
