I'd like to compile a list of some of the most enjoyable games available in Z-code format (blorbed or not). Please add games that you thoroughly liked, and vote for games already on the list. Everything from short pieces to epic works are welcome.

There are Z-code interpreters for a lot of platforms. For people looking for something to play on their platform of choice, a list like this could be useful.
