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 an excellent version of those old Game & Watch games you used to get. As a result it scores kind of lowish on graphics and sound, but it is good fun to play for a while, even the wife had a go. Playability is just like the real thing - you'll either love it or hate it. Written to fit into 4K for a competition, it's really remarkable.”
“Genial and addictive piece of software in only 4K”
