Incredible! They also created the Space: 1999 game!!! Click on the video, listen to the music, and appreciate the intro in perfect 1970s TV movie style...

An absolute must - Space: 1999 was my favourite show when I was a kid (a UK-Italy co-production). Years after I saw Martin Landau performing in a Woody Allen movie, but to me he was always Commander John Koenig!

I think I will download an Oric emulator, but definitely NOT for their otherwise excellent Elite version :wink: .

Wow, that Space 1999 game looks awesome!
Shame my Oric Atmos is in my parents' attic on the other side of the Atlantic!

Too bad we didn't write these notes about the Space: 1999 game on Sept. 13th :wink: .

I sold my Oric earlier this year :(

Well, I din't have neither room nor time for it, and no microdrive, so I really don't regret getting rid of it.
