We are moving all Atari Lynx related content over to Atari Lynx Vault and all our shop content over to K-Retro Gaming. Please update your bookmarks!

As a result of this change, the following will no longer be available: Online Lynx Emulator, Collection Tracker, Game Ratings, News. If you are interested in contributing content to Atari Lynx Vault, we are seeking editors and maintainers.

Why is this happening? First - the Atari Gamer branding is changing to K-Retro Gaming to allow us to expand to providing games, replacement parts, and mod services to other game consoles. And second - The content management system running Atari Gamer is out of date and Google AppEngine (where the website runs) will no longer allow it to run after the 30th January 2024, so in order to preserve all content we switched to a new and modern content management system and chose a website domain that better suits the subject matter. Since we are operating this website in our spare time, on top of full time family and job committments, some features had to be dropped.

Zzzzzz zzz zzzz ZOMBIES! Protect your fortress from the onslaught of zombies headed your way. Put each zombie at peace. Stop zombies attacking people. You can't rest until all zombies are perished!

How To Play🕸

In Z.A.P. you have to build offensive and defensive structures to keep zombies out of your fortress. You must balance your energy production and consumption and keep an eye on the integrity of your structures in order to survive.

There is a background energy generation that will fill up your energy bar, but you may need to build additional power plants to support more structures. All structures require energy to be built and all structures (except the power plant) have an idle energy usage. Structures like guns and laser consume additional energy when activated. If a gun/laser can't activate, it will power down until there is enough energy to activate it again.

All structures have a structural integrity meter (yellow bar). Once this reaches zero, your structure will fall to rubble. Zombies can attack your structures, but there is also natural deterioration of structures over time.


These are in the in-game controls.Opt 1 - Cycle through structures to buildA - Place structure on fieldB - Destroy structure on selected field positionD-pad - Change field positionPause - Pauses the game

The game's page contains details about item and enemy stats too.
