And I stand corrected.

I had assumed it was a DOS game first and foremost given the better graphical features.

It is a ground breaking game either way though. What Doom is to Wolfenstien Frontier is to Elite and its the game that is still genre defining from which all other spacer sims are compared including Elite Dangerous.

I'd love to see someone revisit Frontier on the Amiga to fix the mining system and to possibly expand on the ship controls to add lateral and vertical thrusters.
