ABOUT THE GAME:
In FROM A-TO-Z AND BACK AGAIN you strive to survive for an entire minute against ravening hordes of zombies. One minute may not seem like long, but there are a lot of zombies and you're running out of ammo. It probably doesn't help that the aging defense system that protects your building is even more poorly documented than most government software.

Good luck.

FROM A-TO-Z AND BACK AGAIN is a real-time text based strategy game, and an experiment in the Inform 6 language.

Installation Notes: 

PLAYING THE GAME:
FROM A-TO-Z AND BACK AGAIN is written in (a very heavily modified version of) Inform 6.11 and thus requires a Z-machine interpreter in order to be played. A list of Z-machine interpreters for various operating systems ranging from the Amiga to Unix to Windows can be found here: http://www.inform-fiction.org/zmachine/interpreters.html (on the left side of the page). Once an interpreter has been installed you can use it to run the game.

COMPILING FROM SOURCE:
A copy of the Inform 6.11 compiler (for Windows/32) has been included as inf.exe with the source code for anyone who wants to play around with things.

AtoZ.inf is the main source file for the game, and the various .h files make up our version of the Inform 6.11 library.
