“ 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. ”

Zip'n Zap

1998 - Jonathan Bristow


“I had finished in single player Zip'n Zap, but 2 players is a little hard. Nice samples, nice graphics, nice game ... But no music during the game ... ;-)”
Jede

“You MSUT try this game, at least to listen to the incredible music ! Zip'n Zap is a very good puzzle/arcade game: find your way thru mazes that collapse. Addictive and sometimes complicated, a very good game in the end !”
Symoon

“Great graphics and sound in this game and it can be for one or two players together! It is the sort of puzzle/arcade mix that the old 8 bit machines were quite good at. Graphics are clear and detailed with some nice touches such as the animated background. There is a multi-channel tune on the main title screen and digitised sound effects in the game which are very effective. Be warned, the first few levels are easy, but it soon gets harder, and trying to find a way through becomes an addictive obsession!”
