Score: 8.0

“Zeit² succeeds because it takes everything you think you know

about a shooter and turns it on its head. (…) It’ll change what you

think a shooter is supposed to be.”

“This includes some of the most engaging and difficult Bonus Levels I’ve ever played

and game types that feel like entirely new experiences.”


“A ground breaking mechanism that revamps the genre with a new beauty.

The ability to test all players while keeping gameplay simple

isn’t easy, but Brightside Games has done a fine job indeed.”

360.mmgn 8.5

“The core gameplay is very much like the classic R-Type series,

but what separates Zeit² from the rest of the R-Type copycats are the various

new directions that the game takes the side-scrolling 2D shooter genre.”

“One great thing that Brightside Games did for Zeit² was to give it some amazingly well thought out audio design.

The tunes that pump through the speakers during boss fights sounds both epic and exciting.”

The Video Game Writers, 8.0

“The boss battles in the game are awesome.  They all require creativity and reflexes to beat.”

Capsule Computers, 8.5

“Very rarely do I find graphics that work well with the game I’m playing but there is a great contrast here.

You can easily see what you have to kill, what you can’t kill, and what the enemy is going to do.”

Just push start, 8.0

Impressions: A poem for Zeit²

“Bottom line poem:

The presentation is excellent

the value is high

for shooter and arcade fans

this game is a buy.”

“Zeit2 works.  It’s fun, addictive, and forces you to learn something new by dusting off an old trick, rewinding time.

As you progress through the game and build up your weaponry you begin to fall deeper and deeper under its spell.”
