my own translation of the meat of the article:

Quote:
The publisher Kavcom has obtained the license of the 1996 RTS classic "Z", and is planning the release of a remake in the form of a download for pc, mac, and diverse other handheld platforms.
"Z: The Game" should be released in the course of this year, a firm release date and more details about the game will given soon, with hopefully screenshots of the remake.
Used to be a very funny game, with your units insulting you as often as each other. You got factories by capturing the flag on "sectors" of the map, then using those new factories to create armies and wipe out the opposing side. Game was made in 1996 by the Bitmap brothers.

This was out before i was really getting into RTS games. Warcraft II was probably the first that got me interested.

But if it is as fun as you guys say, i will try the remake

First few screenshots from the ipad version of the game. Graphics look unchanged from 1996, making me wonder if this is more of an emulation than a remake...
