Classic game; a steal for $0.99. The Bitmap Brothers' Chaos Engine (aka Soldier of Fortune) just re-released on PC ($9.99) and it'd be great if we see it come to iOS as well.

Wow! I just noticed Z got updated with multiplayer! I'm Undeadcow on Game Center and down for some Z warfare.

Yeah I know right? I caught this game originally on Pocket Tactics. Than today I stumbled across this sale and see they added MP! Yay!

Edit: I'm ScotDamn on GC, I've actually never played with anyone over GC but Ill add you as a friend!

Might be interested in this but am kind of shocked at the app size. Not anything against the game, but with retro graphics like that I would have figured 50 MB tops. There's lengthy RPGs logging in under 20 MB.

Anyway, extremely crushed for space. Might wait on this.

Yeah, this game for $.99 is a total win!

AWP69, if you dig RTS games, I say buy it without hesitation. This is one of those classics. It's got humor, it's got tactics/strategy, it's got tons of replay value, especially now with MP. At the very least while on sale if you can't part with the space needed atm.

Undeadcow, I can't figure out how to send messages in GC? haha I tried sending you an invite to play but I'm pretty clueless on how this GC stuff works.

Yeah that was strange. It was kind of pausing a bit here and there and than it went back to the menu. So it may have a few kinks to work out.

Z has some video segments that I suspect account for the larger file size. While it's not convenience with Apple's space limitations the now dated animated sequences are a cool feature originating from the PC edition (where space is less of a concern and FMV was routine).

I just played an automatch online game and it went a lot smoother; despite my defeat it was a blast. It's amazing they added multiplayer to iOS Z.
