Kavcom, the publisher behind Burn Zombie Burn! for OS X, has released its "modern reworking" of the classic real-time-strategy title Z today. This release of the 15-year-old game includes the full campaign and a modified touch-based user interface.

The oddly titled iOS version, Z: The Game, was produced by the aforementioned Kavcom, Peter Harrap, TickTock Games, and the original developers, the Bitmap Brothers.

"It's finally here, and I’m pleased to say that Z: The Game on iPad and iPhone is everything we wanted it to be," said Kavcom managing director Tony Kavanagh. "We've built it from scratch for touch-screen, so it’s incredibly intuitive to play, but keeps all of The Bitmap Brothers' unique style, humour and attitude. I'm sure Z fans old and new will just love it."

I played the original as a young lad, and I honestly haven't thought about it in years. I'd definitely recommend it to other strategy game fans that haven't already tried it.
