I like the idea of a "Defence-Force Compilation of Greatest Adventures vol. 1" too :) !

We already have a good initial list here. I think Dbug is right about the 3" disks, but we can come up with a distribution which might include:
- Disk image for a single 720 floppy
- 2 Disk images for 360 floppies
- All the game extras: maps, instructions, inlays,...
- Maybe a readme with some info

What do you think? Maybe we can put a poll at the beginning of the thread to select the best of the best (I am looking for gems for the newcomer, more than the games we loved in the past but which are, in fact, crappy) and add them in order until we fill up the disks? Then the rest would be for the next volume :)

Themes are good:
- Adventures games (Maybe separate "text adventures" from action/adventure with graphics, etc...)
- Arcade ports (Pac Man, Galaga, Defender, ...)
- Games that exist only on the Oric (random examples: 3D Fongus, Insect Insanity, ...)
- Reflection/puzzles
etc...
