“ 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. ”

  3k FreeCell
Sun 16th June 2013
A new game is now available for your Oric: A 3 kilobytes version of FreeCell.

FreeCell is a solitaire type card game, mostly known thanks to beeing one of the games installed by default in Microsoft Windows.

This Oric version of the game is compatible with the Windows version: If you type in the same game number, you will get the same card shuffling in both version.


Since the Oric does not come with a mouse, this version is played with the keyboard: Use the arrow keys to select the cards and then press Return to validate the operation.

If you made a mistake you can use the U and R keys to Undo or Redo your moves.

The game was present in the gamedev competition a the @party this week end, and can now be downloaded on pouet.net.

Have fun :)

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!”
