Zero Hour is a decent shooter by pixeltheather, unfortunately it's also a work in progress featuring just one level.
Only two buttons are needed to play this game. Holding down the primary shot button will halve the speed of your ship in exchange for a rapid fire mode. Press X to launch your smart bomb.
Up to six power-ups can be collected to upgrade your firepower. It does have a nice Raiden feel to it, especially during the second half of the demo.

Zero Point is an impressive-looking horizontal shooter created with the Game Maker engine, and consists of one short level in the current build. Use the cursor keys to move, and hold the left control key to shoot. Your special attack gauge automatically charges up when no shots are fired from your ship, indicated by a red bar at the bottom left of the screen.
The lite version is missing plenty of background graphics and sound, and should only be downloaded as a last resort. Note that the game will only run properly on graphic adapters which are capable of supporting a resolution of 1280 by 960 or higher.
|Zerosum||Unknown||Puzzle||Browser||Click here to play|
Zerosum is a puzzle game that is easy to learn but difficult to master, where players attempt to remove as many tiles as they can before their chances run out by matching at least three blocks with the same number in a column or row.
Click on a block to select it, then select an adjoining tile to move it over to the new spot. This block will then change to a number which is the sum of the previous two tiles, with numbers going above nine starting the count from zero again. One tile will then be taken from your stock to replace the blank spot vacated by the original block, as indicated in the next tile indicator on the right side of the screen.
As the level counter increases, more chains and matches are needed to fulfil the extend quota, which then increases your stock count by one. When burst mode is activated, tiles do not have to be in a straight line to be considered a valid match. Metallic tiles have numbers which cannot be changed, blocks encased in ice has to be freed by removing a tile next to it, and numbers in rounded tiles are increased by one after every turn.
There is a short advertisement to sit through before the game will load.

Ziczac is a simple scoring-based puzzler where players acquire points by making small squares with four tiles of the same colour, or attempt to create large loops for a special multiplier bonus. There are only two keys to use at any time to change the direction of the falling blocks. Additional points can also be scored by placing cells of another colour inside a loop.
The game window may require a resolution of higher than 1024 by 768 to display correctly, and can be moved around by dragging the uppermost area where a title bar should be located at.
|Zilch||Gaby Vanhegan||Puzzle||Browser||Click here to play|
In Zilch, two players attempt to score a set number of points before their opponent does, simply by deciding on when to roll the dices and when to bank in the points they've acquired up to that roll. Like Yahtzee, certain dice combinations awards more points, but the bank option is only available when you've scored a total of three hundred points from all your rolls. You also lose your turn and all accumulated points for that round if you fail to score anything after your first roll in each turn.
With the tutorial enabled, players would require only a couple of turns to grasp the basic rules of the game.
|RezetiA||Shoot 'em up||32.9 MB||Click here to download|
Zillion Beatz is a new vertical shooter by RezetiA, featuring one short level but with five different difficulty settings. The needless configuration and armory shop from Pladzma has been ditched, allowing folks who don't speak Japanese to sample some of the gameplay on offer with little hassle.
Either ship is outfitted with two primary weapons, switchable using the C key. Hold the Z key to shoot, and press the X key to launch a bomb. The type of bomb launched depends on the current primary weapon in use, but still shares the same slot. It's possible to orient the option position by moving your ship around, then locking them in their current alignment by holding the Z key.
Only the weapon currently in use will be upgraded when a power-up is collected. Options can be aligned right in front of your ship by holding the W key.
