Oric Kong, anonyme, pour Oric-1/Atmos (pages 49 à 51, fichier ORICKONG.DSK de André C.) Votre fiancée a été enlevée par le gorille Kong. Traqué, l'animal s'est réfugié au sommet d'un building. A vous de la récupérer en évitant les projectiles lancés par Kong. Vous vous déplacez à l'aide des touches L = droite, K = gauche, A = haut, Z = bas (pour KONGORG.COM)
ou à l'aide des flèche (KONG.COM) et pour sauter, servez-vous de la barre d'espace.

Here's what Ellis, author of the magasine version, says on Defence Force:
"I wrote it during my summer holidays when I was something like 17 (I'm... 48 now), because I was a huge fan of the Arcade Game Donkey Kong/Crazy Kong and dreamed to play it on my Oric.

There was an Arcade place near my house and I spent hours taking notes in front of the original games (there was no digital camera at this time :D ), I even recorded the sound effects with a portable tape recorder :lol:

TILT and other magazines (like Hebdogiciel) occasionally asked me for games (I also wrote the game "Les petits pois mexicains" for the Casio PB700 in the same TILT issue).

But the guy I worked with for TILT was a freelance writer, and I discovered later he sold my games under his name.
As my father was a lawyer, he contacted TILT and we reached an agreement where they published on a later issue that this game was written by me.

I also wrote later the game "La cité interdite", using some of the same "code" and sprites as in ORIC KONG

One day, while working on Oric Kong, my tape recorder had a problem and I was unable to save the version I had spent the day working on. I managed to connect my Oric to a VCR we had in the house, and saved the listing on the audio part of the videotape !

The best donkey kong for the Oric ... when a simple type-in program is much, much better than a commercial game (Dinky Kong).

Wow! I though I was the only crazy guy who tried to type in this HUGE BASIC program at that time. I still have the original TILT magazine... Yes , it is a bit slow, but this was so great to play the 4 same levels as in the arcade game ! And by typing it, you were kind of bringing life to this program yourself on your so beloved computer ! Memories...
