An Amiga version was announced in 1998 to be made by clickBoom, but it was never released.

Z95 (Win95 version of Z) includes a Map Editor for building multi player maps, 15 additional 'Expert Missions' and a Desktop Theme.

There was a special edition of Z called 'Z Platinium'. It comes in a big black box containing two CD-ROM (Z and the 'Directors Cut'-Demo), a Mousepad , a Pin, a Key Chain and a cool black T-Shirt (Size XL).

I got a brand new retail box of Z today for 6$! Now I just have to pray that it works on Seven.

Truly awesome game. Just been playing it and still has the gameplay factor to this day. Level 16 is hard as nails ! thought i'd check out to see if you can play it on-line but no luck yet :-( it's a pity Steel Soldiers sucked!
