Zeit² is a side-scrolling shooter in the vein of classics like R-Type. Visuals are reminiscent of flOw while using time mechanics similar to Braid. You fly around ,shoot enemies, grab power-ups, and the like. The game has 6 different game (arcade, waves, etc.) and leaderboards. Health and the rewind ability are capped. In addition to when the player is shot or touching an enemy, health also goes down when certain enemies past you, when you shoot and ,rewind time. The more health a player has the larger his size.

Time Powers

The blue orb is the player while the black is the rewind clone

The time abilities allow the player to rewind and fast forward time. After the ship rewinds, a black clone is made and does your previous actions to help you fight. Fast forwarding simply makes the game go faster for a chance increased at multipliers. Some enemies can only be destroyed by your time clone.
