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.

You can check for more details here:

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.
