M.A.R.C. .. anyone got it?

Post by ibisum » Sat Mar 03, 2018 10:15 pm

I'm not sure of the policy regarding this kind of request - apologies in advance if this is inappropriate .. but, does anyone have a copy of M.A.R.C. they could upload to oric.org? I've been going through the database with the youngsters and this one is on their list of nice games to play "if they could" ..

(It should be noted that we've made a family oath to finish Damsels In Distress one of these days .. but man is it fiendish. In order to keep the kids interested in the Oric, we've been going through the archives and finding some real gems that I missed out on entirely in the 80's ..)

I tried to upload the games on Oric.org but there's a problem on MARC's page I guess, as nothing is visible once uploaded.

So, here are the TAPs ;)

Cool thanks! We (me and the kids) are going to give this one a bash and review .. sweet!

(Is there anything better than discovering new software for the Oric?)

Good luck with MARC. Quite a good game I think, but it requires two players for a one-player game :lol:

I recall playing MARC with my brother. One of us was controlling the ladder and the depth, the other was piloting and shooting.
So it was multiplayer, and much more fun then - but hard anyway ;)
(maybe worth a try if yu give the game another go)
