Z (pronounced "Zed") 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 ensues as you attempt to crush your opponent completely before he overpowers you. Z features an intuitive control interface--no need to wade through a large and boring manual; super smooth multidirectional scrolling; and 20 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? Z features 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 2,000 frames of animation. There are 11 types of hardware for your robots to control, from tanks, jeeps, and armored personnel carriers to Gatling guns and missile launchers. Many different buildings, including factories and repair installations, are available to capture and control.
