Ska Studios has released TIME VIKING!!!!!ANDSPACERAPTOR, a formerly Windows 7 Phone exclusive pseudo sequel to the XBLIG smash hit I MAED A GAM3 W1TH Z0MB1ES 1N IT!!!1. If you've enjoyed their particular brand of chaotic arcade insanity with punk music as a backing track in the past, then it's safe to say you'll find this one is right up your alley as well.

TIME VIKING!!!!!ANDSPACERAPTOR is best described as a side-scrolling twin stick shooter. You can move left, you can move right, and you can shoot using the right stick. That's it. As you kill enemies, their debris builds your platform higher into the sky. The higher you go, the crazier and more volatile the enemies become. They'll also drop helpful powerups and extra lives along the way, though once they're buried by your steady, vertical progress, they're gone for good.

I found the Time Viking song to be quite enjoyable. It's actually a relatively ambitious piece of music in all honesty, and backs up the game well. I will say that I was able to finish it in one sitting, so it's quite a bit easier than Z0MB1ES, though it's definitely still worth the experience. TIME VIKING!!!!!ANDSPACERAPTOR costs $1 and is available on the Xbox 360 Marketplace.
