My uncle had this and some other games, like some rednecks type of game. Used to play it when we visited back when I was like 9 (3 years or so since it released), almost never found anything on it. Now I can download it on my phone and play it again?!

LOL! added this comment on 2014-06-07 :

Worst game of the genre ever. Totally sucked. Impossible gameplay from Level 1 and all you heard was some dumb bint calling out "You're losing! You're crap!" all the time. Absolutely hated it.

anyone know how to get the scenes to work and full screen?

run instructions

all installed on c. extract the file into c.
Mount c c:/
cd z
then z should run. make sure to run setsound aswell.

This stupid game will work. But not if you turn on 'scenes' in the menu. Then it will want those scenes from the cd i guess.
Also you have to run setsound.exe.

Just downloaded .zip file, then modified the z.bat file using 'Notepad':

@Echo Please Wait - Loading ......
@ZED.EXE C: /CD %1 %2 %3 %4 %5

Works no probs.. USE DOSBOX

One of the first computer game I played. It was not the full program. Yet I really enjoyed it. It was challenging, exciting and fun to play.

It asks for a .BAT file that isn't there, and then complains that there is no CD in the drive. Anyone know what could be going wrong?
