The Story and Gameplay...
In Z you were a commander under General Zod in his attempt to conquer the universe. Your team, Brad and Allan, went from site to site and planet to planet pushing back the Blue forces while getting bitched at by General Zod. In the Zod Engine the doors are opened up so that you can play all the levels and make new levels the way you've always wanted to. The Zod Engine is more then just a remake of Z however, it is a fully commercially supported online game that is perpetually running at all times. Players can connect and disconnect at any time.
The Zod Engine is a MMORTS / RTS style game. In the game you command an army of robots and vehicles to take over neighboring territories in the ultimate goal of destroying all of your enemies. Unlike traditional RTS (Real Time Strategy) games the Zod Engine does not create units from collected resources but instead construction is constant from preset factories scattered throughout the level.
What is New?
Official Website: Zod.sourceforge.net
In game menus are now added allowing the game to rise dramatically towards a polished mature release. Also a few important bug fixes have been installed including faster load times particularly for windows.
The current theme of updates is an attempt to expand the game's accessibility to players and try and reach a mature state. So this includes expected updates such as an official mac build, an official android build (it already compiles for the android), and translations. Also improvements to the map editor are scheduled.

seeing as the steam version of Z is absolute ****, I think this source port will get more attention.
A mac version would be much appreciated :)
That game looks like the old Z, like it :)
Oh god, thank you for this!
I've wanted to try the game but the actual game wouldn't work, you are a life saver
This game looks bad ***!
Agree with DragonNOR.
It is still a classic game and well worth playing.
One of the greatest and possibly hardest strategy games to date.
lol its looks like HOM&M 2
