            A return to the good old days
            Exactly what I like to see - a game oozing playability. SV does not waste time with bloated graphics but rather is a neat, clean, well written piece of software that focuses on the core values that a true gamer holds dear - memories of Elite on the Beeb come to mind :-)
            Kudos to the author for ensuring ground up cross platform compatibility - so far I've seen no big/little endian issues.
            Though fairly simple at the moment, each new release advances leaps and bounds and I can't see it being long before SV has developed a fair sized fan base.
