Despite the Oric 1 keyboard calculator, the great graphics and sound made me choose this machine...
A bit before receiving my order I was informed that the oric 1 was no longer for sale and would be replaced by the oric 2. I didnt know what I had bought! And I was surprised when I discovered that my gift was called atmos, and had a real keyboard.
For me this machine means freedom creation. With other one that could be 'this thing authorized and this other one is prohibited because too complicated for you, because you are just a primary schoolboy'. the contents of oric Handbook means 'I explains to you gently in the beginning, after it will go faster, and in the end, does what you want with, you are the boss'
“Another dose of great graphics, sounds and ideas. After some of the dreadful Oric software we have seen over the years, you just won't believe what you are seeing (and hearing) your Oric do when you load this one up!”
“If only this demo was available back in the 80's Oric would have become what it was deserving, the all times best-seller home-computer.”
“When I buy my Oric1 (in 1983 and still working!) in Italy there isn't Oric software in Rome's shop..Sigh! So, when I spent lot of time typing my machine code games/demo, I've dream things like this VIP4 DEMO run on my prefer microcomputer (I was 12 years old at the time) and NOW this kind of amazing Oric's capabilities ARE a reality!! This demo is AWESOME!”
