I like a great shoot-em-up, who doesn't? But for years there's hasn't been that much in the way of evolution of the concept.
Zeit² promises an interesting twist on the concept if nothing else.

Kicking off the month of Sci-Fi Games, is a curious little shooter, whose author gave it the tag line 'Speed! More speed!'
Two words: Torus Trooper. SPEED, MORE SPEED!

Language prompts at the start of a game are nothing new. A prompt asking me to confirm that I'm happy with the game using full screen strobe effects, however, is somewhat new. I don't think I've ever had a game specifically ask I'm OK with it, normally just telling me it's my risk to play. This may or may not be a good thing.
