Description (by The Bitmap Brothers)

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 multi-directional 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 anti-tank 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 multi-player combat. Battle against another human opponent over serial or modem link or link up to four machines on a network.
