Description Edit | History

From the Developer Website

Z is... a real-time wargame in a totally free environment, unhampered by discrete turns or dull hex grids. A hair-raising race for territory and resources as you attempt to crush your opponent completely before he overpowers you. An intuitive control interface - no need to wade through a large and boring manual, just pick up and play. Super smooth multidirectional scrolling. Twenty challenging levels played over five deadly planets each with a unique terrain ranging from frozen Arctic wastes to nightmarish lands of fire and lava.

Z has... robot soldiers with individual personalities which determine how they react to different situations and how effectively they carry out your orders - will they chicken and run, or march gung-ho into the jaws of hell itself? Six robot types with unique personalities and their own weapons, ranging from humble rifles to machine guns and antitank missile launchers. Robots perform up to 40 different actions, created with an incredible 2000 frames of animation. Eleven types of hardware for your robots to control, from tanks, jeeps and armoured personnel carriers to gattling guns and missile launchers. Many different buildings, including factories, radar and repair installations, to capture and control.

Z gives... you sophisticated computer opponents with many individual styles of play. Fast and frantic multiplayer combat. Battle against another human opponents over serial or modem link or link up to four machines on a network. building factories, radar and repair installations, to capture and control.

Z features... four megabytes of stunning in-game graphics. Earth-shattering explosions with tons of shrapnel and flying debris. Over 30 minutes of humorous video sequences with digital audio. A conditional music system which reflects in real-time the state of the battle. Digitised voices for your robot leaders to report on battlefield activity. Extra features that are automatically enabled on higher specification machines: real-time sprite scaling and rotation and SVGA mode.

Z is... the fastest, funniest, most frantic, feature-packed action-strategy game you'll play this century!
