    As part of RetroLiPS project by RetroMagazine World born to collect and preserve program and game listings from old computer magazines, here is a golf game for our beloved Oric! In addition to the BASIC listing, you can also download the snapshot (.SNA) of the game. Enjoy the game!

    Excellent - thanking you, Daz.

    Many a happy hour spent typing in such a listing as this.

    Half the joy was the bug fixing after typing RUN and getting no end of errors!

    Remember when there was a little bit of machine code or user defined characters… all the endless data statements and if you got one wrong the computer would crash. Hopefully you saved it beforehand.

    I see there is an Atari BASIC game on there as well.

    Too reet, Rich. You spent extra time just trying to locate those weird looking inverse ampersands, blocky graphic with a bit missing at 10 oclock by pressing caps lock, symbol, shift 8 etc.... all at the same time! Yes, the Atari listing was Treasure Hunt I think. Now I don't ever remember keying in that back in the day but I do remember countless Sinclair and Oric ones! My brain is still fried from the experience...
