  • About The Game:

  • Synopsis: Z is a military command game where you control a robot army trying to take over five planets. clickBOOM have recently announced that they are licensed to port this Bitmap Brothers game to the Amiga. clickBOOM is also responsable for the ports of Myst and Quake to the Amiga, both of which were professionally done, so I expect this one to continue in that tradition. I have compiled information from the other ports of Z to make this page, so remember none of this is official for the Amiga port, although it is very likely true. More information will follow soon.

    Their are six different types of robots with unique personalities and weapons, eleven types of equipment like tanks, jeeps, APCs, gatling guns and missle launchers and many different types of buildings to utilize. It also has over 30 minutes of humorous video clips and digitized robot voices.

    Bitmap Brothers is a long time multi-platform game maker that seem to have shifted to making one version and licensing games out to interested companies for other ports. Their other works include Xenon, Speedball, Cadaver, Chaos Engine and Gods.
