I remember playing on MSX1 a pretty much similar game to "Elite", sometimes even called "Elite 2". Does anybody have any idea of what game is?

Elite 2 was named Frontier, but I don't remember if it was released for MSX (I don't think so).
I played it in PC.

Hi Smile

Elite 2: Frontier was never released for 8 bits computers EdFerrao, only on 16 bits platforms.

The original Elite was indeed released for MSX (by Mr Micro) in both tape and disk versions.

I think EdFerrao may be referring to a game with similar 3D style as Elite, but not actually from the Elite series (just referred to as “Elite 2” by some as a nickname). Something about this tickles my memory, but I can’t recall it.

It's been renamed to Elite-A with hindsight, but there was a widely-circulated fan-made extended version of Elite for the BBC Micro that at the time was called 'Elite III'. Could something similar have happened here? How much was this Elite 2 like the original?

Exactly, but not only a similar 3D style as Elite, til where I remember it was like a "Elite" clone.
