About This Game

Zeit²™ is a traditional side-scrolling, 2D, shoot-’em-up game that brings unprecedented elements to the game experience. Zeit²’s unique time travel feature has yet to be seen in this genre even after decades of great games.

Intuitive controls allow players to move forward and backward in time making it possible for the player to combine shots and power, and even be assisted by a shadow version of yourself. Blast away swarms of enemies, get the highest score and discover how you can assist yourself in new exciting ways by warping time at will.

Key Features

  • Time Travel: Assist yourself and perform stunning moves by interacting with your time shadow when travelling back in time. Pace the game and gain extra points by speeding up time. Balance your time travel and life energy to master the game through 70 challenges.
  • 8 Epic Bosses Battles: Discover the potential of your arsenal of powerful moves while fighting over a dozen different enemies and defeating the eight massive bosses.
  • Weapon Upgrades: Your main weapon can be upgraded three times and you will feel the striking force of your additional weapon systems including Beam-Shot, Chain-Shot and Shockwave. The bonus system gives you extra score multipliers as long as you don’t miss out on shooting all enemies.
  • 6 Challenging Game Modes: Go on a journey through 20 chapters of action and variety in the Arcade mode. Challenge others for the highest score in the other modes: Score Attack, Survival, Wave, Time Limit and Tactics. All modes are well integrated with leaderboards and unlockable achievements.
  • Easily accessible for the casual player and yet challenging for the hardcore gamer.

Pre-Release Review

After you learn the controls this is actually a quite addictive game (I changed the controls to the five lower buttons on the numpad). You start out with an arcade mode which goes from easy to frustrating hard. After playing arcade you'll unlock a new mode, and a new mode after playing this, and so on. There's actually quite a few game modes to unlock, where the last is the most interresting; namely the Challenge mode. Some of the achievements can only be obtained through this mode, and some are very different from the usual bunch, such as "get a better score than a randomly chosen person in a randomly chosen level".

Another fun feature that sets this game away from other side-scrolling flying shooters is the time-travel abilities. You can fast travel throw time, which gives you bonus score, or you can rewind time such that you can replay a few seconds (while your other timeline self's shots still count).

An interresting twist on a classic game genre, and I can only recommend it.

An exquisite rendition of a bioluminscent trip down neon lane. Quite expensive but in my opinion well worth the asking price. A quality title; slick, polished and demonstrates there is a whole lot more than learning enemy patterns. The time travelling element has been implemented well and adds to the dymanic bells and whilstles. Yes Sir/Madame, I wholeheartly loved my time spent with Zeit Squared.

Ez to learn, hard to master...

Zeit 2 is a great game for just a few bucks, its fast paced arcade style gameplay reminds of alot of the old rail shooters back in the day of arcade gaming.

If you have a few mins to kill, or just want to test your reflexes, give Zeit 2 a try.

First time I play the game, I skip the tutorial and played one credit only. Well, first thought is the game looks awesome. The time mechanic is great for make huge damage on enemies wave and it's possible to make huge combos. The beginning of the game isn't hard, I lost against the second boss and it was easy to go at this point. I'll update the review if I change my mind after more playing.

game works well., the game has a rewind and fast foward button.

Is the game good, i suppose,

in second level after the frist boss you will encounter energy drainers those are the killer for this game I totally hate them.
I can understand why they did this but honestly they drain far too much energy which you need for your sheld and health.

Your shield = health.

Health = How many shoots you have

Getting to second boss was okish.

Got to second boss and found it far too crappy to even try to use the beam shot which you get before that level, boses move around like they are trying to dodge you but your too busy to even concentrate on them because of the bullethell type game you dodging bullets just trying to get though and survive long enough to kill the boss.

Gave up, going to uninstall, Thanks for game..

I hope whichever cockgoblins came up with the idea that it's okay to start games at 1280x720 or 640x480 (or whatever phone resolution they can come up with) die a most unjolly death.
Tolerable Ubi-published shmup-y game.

Quite interesting shooter game! Gameplay is as easy as pretty much any shooter game there is however, you do get a neat gameplay mechanic added in Zeit2... rewind time for a few seconds! That way, you can land more kills (to heal up) and keep it up with the killing spree!

Visuals, gameplay and soundtrack are all quite decent!

My only advice though... play this with a gamepad/controller! With keyboard, it ain't as intuitive as a controller!

Not a bad game. First game that is easy to setup with non-xbox controller. Good job Ubisoft.
