Another game for the archives, this time a title mentioned by Mat Allen, and a game by Melbourne House.

This game was briefly mentioned in some magazines and a few adverts were printed. The game actually surfaced on the Spectrum (http://www.worldofspectrum.org/infoseekid.cgi?id=0001636) and Amstrad and got reasonable to average reviews.

Enterprise is a kind of Elite clone of sorts, but lacking on a lot of the features of the great Firebird game and doesn’t look like it would have made a too painful translation to the C64. But for reasons still unknown, the game never made it anyway.

It is the classic tale on the C64 normally of games not making the transition as the C64 was a little on the crap side at doing vector based games (Without all the tricks that we see today). What is the betting that this is another casulty of the Vector game translation problem on the C64?

No credits or details are currently known apart from a guess from a recent source, so its early days really for this title.

Do you know any more? We need to confirm the author credits!…

More research needed…
