Gather your grunts soldier!

Join Commander Zod in his battle for space supremacy in this faithfully remastered version of the classic action strategy, now available on the Mac App Store and Blackberry Playbook!

Mac and Playbook owners can now experience the real time rush and addiction of strategic warfare from the plains of a totally free environment in the compelling reworking of Z: The Game, the classic action strategy from The Bitmap Brothers.

The seminal Bitmap title for Mac has been remastered to capture the essence of the breathtaking race to capture territory and resources. Z: The Game features a unique score that follows the pulse-pounding action and real-time flow of the battle, along with the offbeat humour delivered through movie intros and outros, which defined Z as one of the definitive strategy games of its era.

Take control of an army of six robot soldier types, including the faithful grunt, and slug it out in a land grab for space supremacy across five planets, each with unique terrain, ranging from arctic wasteland to lands of fire and lava. Whilst each of the robot soldiers is capable of performing up to forty different actions, they each posses a unique personality trait, adding another dimension to the tactical gameplay; will they carry our your orders and march into the jaws of hell, or will they chicken and run?

Your robot soldiers wield a heavy arsenal of weapons and navigate the environments in jeeps, three different types of tank and armoured personal carriers. Capture and control installations including factories where you manufacture robots and vehicles, radar and repair facilities. Play out your own strategy, but receive spoken prompts from robot leaders.

Burn Zombie Burn! available now on Apple Mac

Kavcom and doublesix games launch the zombie-destroying global hit on the Apple Mac App Store with extensive control options and in-game player guide

Digital publisher Kavcom has announced that doublesix games’ action-packed undead-shooter Burn Zombie Burn! is out now on the Apple Mac App Store. Burn Zombie Burn! for Apple Mac features extensive control options to play the game in addition to mouse and keyboard, including PlayStation 3 DualShock wireless controller, Xbox 360 wired controller, iShock gamepad and BZB Gamepad – an iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad free-to-download gamepad app.

Burn Zombie Burn! is an action-packed arcade shooter where you take on the role of Bruce, a character who has to fight off a never-ending horde of undead attackers with increasingly bizarre weaponry including chainsaws, baseball bats and mega machine guns. To score high, you will have to set fire to as many zombies as possible – the more zombies on fire, the bigger your multiplier – but be careful, burning zombies are faster and much more dangerous.

“Apple Mac gamers will be able to experience the full, manic zombie-killing mayhem with an unprecedented choice of controllers,” said Managing Director of Kavcom, Tony Kavanagh. “The integration of the free BZB Gamepad iPhone and iPod Touch app has worked especially well on Apple Mac, and you’ll also be able to play effortlessly using a range of existing popular console gamepads.”

“Burn Zombie Burn! for Apple Mac has every drop of the fantastic addictive gameplay that has established our undead blaster as a worldwide smash,” added doublesix games Studio Head, James Brooksby.

Burn Zombie Burn! was awarded 88% by GameZone who said: “what a zombie-killer game should be…offering all the creativity, hilarity, and destruction any gamer could ask for and then some!” and was also branded “great” by IGN and given a stellar 83% score. “A good time all round,” said 1UP who also scored the game with a whopping 83%.
