Teletext Elite - Bits and Bytes (Ep. 5)

By Colin Hoad | May 06, 2024

In this episode of Bits and Bytes I take a look at the wonderfully eccentric Teletext edition of Elite! This wacky version was made by Mark Moxon using the Teletextr technique pioneered by Kieran Connell and results in a fully playable version of the original game but set entirely in Mode 7. It's a genuine homage to the Ceefax era as well as being an entirely playable and enjoyable game.
