Oldschool Gaming - reviewing new games on classic computers
1337 (Oric) released :: posted by Jason :: 10 Sep 2010

Some very big news for the Oric fans out there, 1337 is now available to download - and for those who haven't been anxiously awaiting it, 1337 is based on David Braben and Ian Bell's classic Elite (for the uninitiated, "1337" means "leet" in leetspeak) and therefore appears to be an engrossing mixture of space-bound dog fighting and resource trading. But rather than being a direct port of the BBC game, 1337 has been coded from the ground upwards and incorporates new features, some offered by the beta testers over at the Defence Force forums.
