Impossible Mission Released for the Oric

Recommended Posts

Another great classic game ported to the Oric.

The initial version is missing the sampled sound but that is in the works.

Wait, someone ported a game to a vacuum cleaner?

 

I kid. I actually had never heard of this particular microcomputer. That it is British explains why. Still, I always am fascinated to find out about obscure early computer brands.

Wow, first Stormlord and now Impossible Mission :o

 

Shame that video is no longer available :_(

Actually, first Space 1999, then Stormlord, then 1337 (Elite), and THEN Impossible Mission.

Can you actually complete the mission in this version or did you translate the buggy 7800 code? :D

I didn't write it so I'm not really sure. I believe the author wrote it from scratch so I'd guess that you can complete it.

Where is the fun in converting a game from another system? To be the most fun is had from observing the behaviour of the game elements and rewriting the game from scratch. I have not seen the Atari version, only C64, Spectrum and Electron/BBC :P

And yes the game is completable, even in impossible mode (Difficulty level and 2 hours game time).

 

In the 80's porting was popular, particularly from the Spectrum to Amstrad and BBC to Electron but rarely did the port take advantage of the destination machines true capabilities.
