“ 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. ”

Grand Prix

1990 - Alistair Way


“Ah, this is a great Super Sprint remake ! I sadly never had the full version with all tracks. Each car can be changed, and multiplayer is allowed. I'm surprised this game seems to remain unknown, any Super Sprint-like fans must try it.”

“Excellent game by the talented Ali Way. I recall he was looking for ideas for new games to write and I went back with 'Super Sprint clone, please!'. He hadn't even heard of the game, which makes the final result even more amazing. I sent him a few screen shots and a game review. He came back with Grand Prix. A superb conversion - 4 player no less!”
