A downloadable game for Windows

The most difficult climb is often the most rewarding. This is certainly the case for the Zenith, a mysterious region situated high atop an arduous mountain path. It is said that untold riches await those who are able to overcome the rigors of the ascent. Many hunters have tried to reach this fabled summit, but very few have succeeded. As an aspiring hunter, do you have what it takes to make it to the top and discover the true nature of the Zenith?

Install instructions

Extract the files from the ZIP archive, then double-click on the Zenith Hunter shortcut in the "Zenith Hunter" directory to start the game. If this does not work for whatever reason, you can also start the game by going into the internal "data" directory and double-clicking the .exe file. Note that certain antivirus programs will run the game temporarily in a sandbox while it scans it, which usually takes around 15 seconds. If this happens, wait until the scan finishes and the game should restart automatically.

Very nice, it's a classic NES style game, but with Atari 2600/5200 graphics and it's entertainingly difficult.
