Alite is a free Android single-player space combat and trading game modelled on the Amiga version of the game Elite (1984), but written from scratch with no reference to the original game's code. Some code elements are adapted from Oolite but Oolite add-ons cannot be used in the current version. The author has announced that the source code will be released at the end of 2015.
The game revolves around space travel, trade, and combat; players begin with a minimally-armed ship and must earn money (by transporting cargo or in combat as bounties for destroying outlaws and hostile aliens.) Money is used to purchase better weapons and other equipment. At the moment it is not possible to buy different ships.
