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.”
