Found this 2d clone of Elite

when you dock at the space station the game turns into a graphic adventure

type of game where you can chat to the locals,look for jobs do some trading ect.Theres a few bad vids

of it on youtube but the game looks lot better then the vid show.

you can get the demo here

Unfortunately it looks like the devs have gone awol,so there might not be any full game?.

8 hours real time 😯 Not sure I want to spend hours flying to my destination,but it's nice to have option of doing it.

Maybe the pirates only attack if you have a valuable cargo of ship?.

Have it loaded on my machine and with playing it briefly seems well done. I will play through it a lot more and post some screenshots when I can. Hope the author picks up on developing again. I tried to find an email address but was unsuccessful for contacting about Deathwar 3030.

With a little touch up Deathwar would be a perfect fit for iPhones and other mobile apps. And maybe even look into the PS3 Network and Xbox360 Live. I am trying to get a hold of the developer to see if I can host Deathwar3030 as a download just incase something happens to the download.

Got a reply from Matt the developer and he gave permission so I can host the files and even a patch for the 1.03 release to make it 1.04. Unfortunetly there is no plans for further work on Deathwar3030. But you never know.... I will make an official thread for the game once I have uploaded the files (probably tonight).

Did you ever upload the patch for the game.

Yeah. Since the developer game me the permission to host all the files I thought I would just merge it all. I haven't added the mod tools to the archive but I will eventually 🙂 And that patch was unreleased btw so it is a SSC exclusive 😉
