I always thought Zarch was an extremely impressive game, and I owned an Acorn Archimedes back then.

I saw that a few years back - very impressive.

I think this is a much better version though ;)

I have that Blitz game on my hard drive from way back!  I'd forgotten who wrote it though.  Awesome version.   :D

On Windows 10 it now has some issues though, is this the latest version?

It was the last build from 2004 so probably compiled in a non win10 compatible version.  It's probably got a hardcoded screen res too!  Ah well, might sort it some day.
