I managed to find a copy of Issue 175 today but there was no review in the Magazine. I guess it's going to be in Issue 176 which supposedly goes on sale today or tomorrow. I will look out for it!
I couldn't find it https://issuu.com/FuturePublishing/docs/ret176.issuu
It will likely be in the 'Homebrew' section of the magazine which is near the back. The sampler you linked to just shows you the first 13 pages.

I have no idea about the section (which should be Homebrew), but I can assure the review exists. This pic was posted in the Spectrum4Ever Facebook Group.

The author of the post stated he thought it was a Spectrum game, but alas... no. It was on the Oric :)

I managed to find a scan of the review which indeed was in Issue 176. I've added it to this post as an attachment.

I added the badge, as well as an extract of the review, and a note with the issue and page number.

Its totally strange how, seeing an Oric game reviewed in a magazine, takes me way .. way .. back in time. What an accomplishment, congratulations!

Yeah, it is great to see the Oric in today's magazines... when it was missing from them in its time :)

Chema, you have done it again, this is a great game. And not only that, a great game that is unique to Oric.
Watched Blake'7 back when it first aired, and now, after playing this, I am going to binge watch all 4 seasons again.

After Space 1999, and this, what's next? Sapphire and Steel? Survivors?

I am in awe of what you are getting the humble Oric to do.

Thanks for your kind words. I am glad that you liked the game, and to hear about others who also watched the series back then!

I am now going to take a small break, because I just don't know what I'll do next :)

Did you mean "I am going to make tie break", a tennis game ? :lol:

Well I suppose there are plenty of ideas (or others suggestions), but enjoy the break. What an achievement watching back all the different kind of games you made :shock:

Not "Small break" = "being idle for months", but "Small break" = "Rest a bit from programming until I find a new idea or challenge for a new game" :lol:

I always take a small break between games.

But there is something that I have to do: work with DBug in the new version of the disk routines for FloppyBuilder!

I have a somewhat definite version of the routines supporting Atmos+Microdisc, Telestrat (not booting, that is not possible in the same disk, but a separate program or different disk image could be created) and Jasmin.

I know that you are now busy with the crazy idea of 4 orics generating the same picture, but when you have some time, we should have a look a this.
