The Bitmap Brothers’ Z, out now on iPad and iPhone!

Remastered iPad and iPhone enhanced versions of the classic action strategy title released today on the App Store through digital publisher Kavcom

The long-awaited 21st Century reissue of The Bitmap Brothers’ classic action real-time strategy title Z is finally unleashed today on the iPad by digital publisher Kavcom. Z The Game is a faithful and thoroughly modern reworking of the seminal Bitmap title, retaining its offbeat comedy and addictive real-time strategy game play, but adding a streamlined touch-screen interface for the iPad that offers players unprecedented smooth control of the two war-ravaged robot armies.

Z The Game for iPad and iPhone packs in the full campaign with 20 explosive levels, five planets, 30 minutes of cut scenes and full Game Center integration.

On its original release in 1996, Z: The Game was given 8/10 by EDGE Magazine, which commented that, “the computer rivals the best non-human opponents strategy games have ever seen…the attention to detail is remarkable,” while PC Zone awarded 92% and a Classic Award, saying the game was, “like Command & Conquer, only harder, more strategic and more intense.”

Z: The Game was developed by original creators The Bitmap Brothers (Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe, Xenon) in conjunction with Kavcom, Peter Harrap (Monty Mole) and TickTock Games.

“It’s finally here, and I’m pleased to say that Z: The Game on iPad and iPhone is everything we wanted it to be,” said Managing Director of Kavcom, Tony Kavanagh. “We’ve built it from scratch for touch-screen, so it’s incredibly intuitive to play, but keeps all of The Bitmap Brothers’ unique style, humour and attitude. I’m sure Z fans old and new will just love it.”
