Title: Oric!
Post by: Chris! on June 27, 2015, 12:57:52 AM
Does anyone know anything about the Oric-1? I think it's a European thing and didn't come out here in the states, but I would like to program a game for it. I would like the challenge of making a pretty game using only 8 colors. I found a new emulator called Oriculator which works on this computer.

It is an English made 6502 based home computer, in those days when I had my first computer (a ZX81) I always looked at the adverts in Your Computer magazine with envy because of the (almost) real keyboard. Now I have one on display in my 'rare computers from the eighties' cabinet. I never programmed on it, just refurbished and tested it. The latter 'Atmos' had a real keyboard.
