“ 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. ”

Zorgon's Revenge

1983 - John Sinclair


“I still rate this 'old' game as one of the best ever made for the Oric. The 4 different screens to complete, place the stones to make a bridge to the castle and then the last screen inside the castle which I haded in the beginning. It was the first HERO man made the Oric - in my opinion If it hadn't been for the later great graphics pictures to other games - I would have given it a 5 instead.”

“We played this game with whole family. I played a part with the bird, mother - both parts with dragons, and father nicely shot space sheeps (he is a pilot). So, all family members stay together, and guess, what part of game will be started Then he runs to the computer, while another player jump out. Very nice and interesting game!”

“A fantastic game. Spent many hours on this in the 80's. Played it again just yesterday ad it's still as infuriating as ever!”
