    At first glance, Z might scare off people, but once you figure out how it works it's perfect for fans of both casual and deep RTS games, it's just too bad there isn't a little more handholding from the outset to bring in new fans.

    It's totally faithful, and if you're of a certain age worth it without question for the nostalgia hit and sheer fizz of the nutty robots and explosions.

    Z The Game isn't just limited to classic gamers and RTS fans; while there is a steep difficulty curve to climb, the simplified RTS features are easy to learn and adapt to.

    Control issues aside, Z The Game is still a lot of strategic fun. The fast-paced nature of each level fits well with the on-the-go style most iOS users are used to and it practically feels like Z was originally designed with the platform in mind. Anyone who enjoys PC strategy games should find plenty to love here.

    An almost classic just misses out for a second time, but this is still a successful attempt to show that real-time strategy can be done differently.

    Despite a few gaps in its defence, Z is a solid time-killer for the solo strategist.

    Z The Game succeeds in bringing the classic strategy game to iOS, but in trying to remain faithful to the original it misses the mark for creating engaging gameplay that works on a touch screen.

    One of the best games I've ever played.

    Great cut scenes, good game play, no bugs whatsoever.

    Runs well on my Samsung Galaxy S4. Was a
    great game to play back in the day on PC too. Full Review »
