“ 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. ”

“This is a superb remake of the old classic Elite, proving once again the prowess of our dear Chema and his ability to push the Oric into the future. With games - and developers - like this, we know the Oric will Never Die!”
Ibisum

“Incredible space simulator, powered by Chema Industries”
Maximus

“SUPERB REMAKE of the old classic Elite. Again Chema and the rest of his team produce a great game for the Oric. Think if this kind of game was produced in the eighties. GREAT GAME!!! Keep up the GOOD WORK!”
