My abiding memories of the 1980s Acorn world are of wonderful, innovative years. I hope readers find that this book gives them a real sense of the excitement and magic of those times!

The original title was ‘The Elite’. We felt sure somebody else would be doing something similar and get it out sooner. Maybe not as well rounded in terms of gameplay, but advanced enough with wireframe graphics to steal a lot of our thunder.

I’m proud of what we achieved with it. Our hands were tied in so many ways by the limited RAM, so I don’t think there was much we could have done differently. We had a lot of ideas that we simply were restricted from implementing.
