@Groepaz: Since the site is static, only sorted by first letters, no dates or tags, the best thing to find the games is:

http://www.google.com/search?q="(Z-Code)" site:http://c64.hardwired.hu/

(in one line, of course). BTW, as I can see, these are converted Infocom games. Rough Google translation from the site news (he's asking for bugreports if we find some):

"A (Z-Code) appears to mean that the program is written in the z-code (Infocom found this out), so an interpreter can be run through almost all platforms, as well as easy-C64 is converted to HTML. Unfortunately, some games may require it, the C64-recognition is not perfect, but this is not what you do not think all the makers of the platform, and this program is still perfectly playable. However, if something is discovered by an error-code from a game, which probably is not included in the original (ie, a crude thing to say, a beautiful color of the text), write a letter to Victor, and look! Of course, I also write to know about it:)"

I think the easiest way to scan through the pages found with the above mentioned search for (Z-Code), and grab the Release 4, Release 6 et cetera links. If you only need the latest version, of course only that one. When only one version exists, it's usually behind the "Letöltés" (Download) link.

Some links, like "doksi" (docs), "térkép" (map) aren't games, but it would be useful to mirror those too. There are docs for "Offensive Probing (Z-Code)" for example.

Greetings from Hungary! A human translation:
"Z-Code label means that the program was written in z-code (invented by Infocom), therefore it can be executed on almost any platform with an interpreter. Unfortunately some games were written in such a way that the rendering is not perfect on the C64 - there is nothing can be done with this, the developers can not think of all platforms. Nevertheless, these games are still perfectly playable. But if you encounter an error, which probably did not exist in the original release (serious difference from the original game, e.g. colorful letters), mail to Viktor (vargaviktor at pro.hu) and he will check it. Please cc me too so I know about it."
