What versions of Z exist?

Post by Zod » 2008-08-03, 00:52

Official Releases:
  • Z (DOS) – release of 1996, for operating system MS-DOS. Look-and-feel: 20 levels for the single player; the multiplay mode is maintained (Lan, Dual-up).
  • Z95 – " Z 95 & Expansion", release of 1998, for operating system Windows 95. Look-and-feel: 20 original levels for the single player from Z (DOS), 15 additional levels; the multiplay mode is maintained (Lan, Dual-up).
  • Ports Z - for the PlayStation and Sega Saturn – 1997-1998.
  • Z mobile – the version for mobile telephones
Inofficial Releases:
  • Z-COOL – 1997 ???, updating Z (DOS). Difference: built-in NO-CD.
  • Z_DOS_XP – 2006 ???, updating Z (DOS). Difference: built-in NO-CD, correct work in operating system Windows XP.
  • Z95 for XP (Antares Patch) – 2007 ???, updating Z95. Difference: correct work in operating system Windows XP and Windows Vista; includes ZEditor to add new levels. Details look here.


Today there is no necessity to use early versions of Z directly (for example using a DosBox).

Z95 with Antares Patch works well!

Great job Zod. But "inofficial" is wrong because this stuff wasn't done by the bros. Maybe rename it to "fan releases". Also the version for mobile telephones is not a BB product.

Maybe we can also list each version of these releases including images :D
  • German ZDos releases
    • Box release

    • Games Collection Release: Gold Games 2 + solution book
      • Box:
