“ My Dad happened to be old friends of the guy importing Oric to Australia, so we bought one of the very first that arrived on that hot continent. I spent 1984 - 1989 getting together as much software as I could for my Oric-1, before moving on to other machines (Unix workstations .. MIPS, etc.)
It was the machine I cut my teeth on.

Now I have two young kids, and I want them to know something about their Dad, eventually: he didn't ever believe that 'old computers die', just .. their users do. So, I've been slowly rebuilding my Oric-1 accessories, library, etc. Well, I've gone beyond the limits of good taste actually, with now a Telestrat, 7 Atmos's, 2 Oric-1's and various other sundry hardware (disk drive!) in my collection. ”

“Have spent many many hours on this game. One of the best arcades on the Oric.”

“Well I've spent many many hours when I was young in front of this great game. I really think it's one (the) of the best shoot'em up for the Oric. Certainly a great DEFENDER clone.”

“Written by Andrew Moore of 'Don't Press The Letter Q' fame. Graphically and technically very impressive, I could regonise the quality of the game. That said, it never really grabbed me enough to really enjoy it for long periods. Dunno why.”
