Z Alternatives

    Z is described as 'Unlike traditional real-time strategy (RTS) games, collecting resources or building specific structures is unnecessary for creating an army - the same principle that was introduced by Nether Earth, one of the RTS games ancestors'. There are four games similar to Z for a variety of platforms, including Mac, Windows, Linux, Steam and iPad. The best alternative is The Battle for Wesnoth, which is both free and Open Source. Other Z like games are Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War (Paid), Wargame (Paid) and Warhammer 40,000: Armageddon (Paid).
