Games for the Z-100

Avalon Hill Games ported to the Z-100 CP/M platform

Greetings and Happy New Year, Z-100 Brothers!

It’s been a while since my last update, but I have not been idle in my Z-100 affairs.  Why not meet the new year with some authentic Avalon Hill games released specifically for the Z-100 platform!  The Z-100 software archives now contain four classic Avalon Hill games that were ported to the Z-100 series CP/M platform:

  • Stocks & Bonds
  • Football Strategy
  • Telengard – love this game!
  • B-1 Nuclear Bomber

The game manuals have been scanned to pdf files and are in the .zip files.  To play the games on a Z-100, do the following:

  1. Prepare a Z-100 CP/M formatted floppy disk
  2. Unzip a selected game file
  3. Use a terminal program to transfer the individual files to a CP/M-formatted floppy on your Z-100 – do NOT transfer the .pdf files.
  4. Launch MBasic (included in the .zip files)
  5. Type “run <filename> where filename will be something like b1 or gard. You don’t need to specify the .bas suffix.
  6. Enjoy your game!

Update 12/31/15: I’ve added ImageDisk files (.IMD) of each game to the respective game .zip files to support those who don’t have serial connections to their Z-100, but have a PC capable of writing floppies with ImageDisk.
