Zed Online – The Game
Zed Online is a remake of the classic strategy game Commander Zod (or just Z).
Over the last 10 years or so, several projects have been started to bring back Commander Zod to live on modern technology. One of them was the Zod Engine by FreakNigh (Nighsoft). The Zod Engine is a great contribution to the community and brought us all back to those days again.
Based on the Zod Engine, DaMarkov started a fork called “Zed Online” and continued the development by adding a user interface, online multiplayer support and much more. Other contributors, including the ZZone, joined DaMarkov in his endeavor to bring back the game to the fans.
And back it is!

Once the game is installed and launched for the first time, you have to create a player so the game server knows who is playing. You scores will be stored and you can compare your results with other players.
You can view the highscores here on the ZZone.
