Hmm.  It's a good name, though I admit that my first through was PIT,
which is, of course, not a pit game.

Those were certainly the games that came to mind when you made your
description.  Hmm.  Characteristics: Turnless, symetrical, real time
-- anything else? (symetrical might not be the right word).

The only game I know that is within this style (among Icehouse games)
is Turnless Zendo.  Which is a pretty good game within the set,
actually, but there's definitely space for more.
