“ 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. ”

“This is a superb remake of the old classic Elite, proving once again the prowess of our dear Chema and his ability to push the Oric into the future. With games - and developers - like this, we know the Oric will Never Die!”

“SUPERB REMAKE of the old classic Elite. Again Chema and the rest of his team produce a great game for the Oric. Think if this kind of game was produced in the eighties. GREAT GAME!!! Keep up the GOOD WORK!”
