“ 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' ”

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 ... ;-)”

“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!”
