Instructions are on the inlay.

This was THE demo provided with every new Oric Atmos.
Side B holds the ALC program (Automatic Level Control), described on the inlay. I suppose it corrects the loading routines, preventing the computer to detect errors before the program actually started loading (bug corrected in later Atmos ROMs).
To be verified, I'm only guessing...

I think I was one of the very few oric atmos owner in Spain. It was a present from my dad. He didn’t like spectrum and he didn’t want me to waste time playing games considering home computers as a educational tool. I remember I was so happy the very first day. I spent hours mesmerized watching this demo. I remember bird animation as the most impressive one.

Oh dear...I remember impressing my mates and the rest of the family with that...."Hey come over this is fabulous, you gotta see this". I must have watched it loads of time, when I was bored of playing.. It looks to me like the bird inpired whoever did the animation for Doggy!

Quite a good demo for the time - everyone who saw it remembers the bird animation. It did the job well - demonstrating the sound and graphics capabilities of the Oric. Nothing like as good as todays demo's and the included game is not very good, but how many of today's demo's include a game? :-)

The bird is really nice, But well i think that it's not the best thing ever done on the oric in 1983
_DBUG_17:08 19-August-2003
Probably the first, and perhaps last impressive thing that most Oric user ever saw on their machine... unfortunately. That flying bird itself was a masterpiece of animation !
