    Minit
    Good for all of them
    Minit is an adventure game where you play as a little white blog looking thing as you attempt to end a curse that ends each day after one minute. You have 60 seconds to do as much in this game as you possibly can... completing tasks for new items... setting up a domino effect to then be able to complete other tasks... and progress through the different

    Minit is an adventure game where you play as a little white blog looking thing as you attempt to end a curse that ends each day after one minute.
    You have 60 seconds to do as much in this game as you possibly can...
    completing tasks for new items...
    setting up a domino effect to then be able to complete other tasks... and progress through the different points on the map...
    however the world doesn’t reset itself, every time you die the progress you’ve made is saved, so this game isn’t asking you to beat it in 60 seconds.. It actually took me around 1 and a half hours... but I set out to uncover as many of this games secrets as I could find and its full of them.. there are optional areas, items, and mysteries to discover…
    as you crawl through the map you’ll unlock new respawn areas, and if you find a certain secret in the game you’ll be able to later fast travel through each..
    It’s a really hard game to try and describe...
    it’s hard to go into detail without spoiling the mystery of the world...
    you simply find a sword on the beach and this sends you off on an adventure to life the 60 second curse...
    There are the occasional enemies, secret hearts to give you more health
    it’s fun and challenging remembering where you need to go with your newly acquired item, and realizing you can now take this shortcut with your new ability, the game is hard to pick down...
    it never came close to feeling like it overstayed its welcome, it left me wanting more..
    I do feel there was a lack of buildup to this games ending... it felt a bit abrupt but I enjoyed my time with minit...
    This is one of those games that I feel anyone can pick up and enjoy..
    I give minit
    an 8/10

    I loved it...
    It’s a short and clever game and I like that. Good investment of time and money..
    So if you are usually short on time like me, this would be a game for you.
    You’ll be able to finish the game in an hour or two.

    Minit is a bite sized 2D Zelda-like played a minute at a time. It features a minimalist, yet charming, art style, an enjoyable sound track, and a clever hook in which our cursed, yet nameless, hero dies every sixty second.
    While the repetitive nature of the game could seem unappealing Minit is cleverly designed in such a way as to never feel old, each run is a fresh attempt at progression

    While the repetitive nature of the game could seem unappealing Minit is cleverly designed in such a way as to never feel old, each run is a fresh attempt at progression and another chance to move forward.
    The game clocks in at between one and two hours, though many more can be spent attempting to uncover every secret Minit has to offer. For $9.99 (I got it for $6.99 on sale) it was worth every penny.
    While it is certainly inspired by games such as The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, Undertale, Earthbound, and Final Fantasy Adventure, Minit is unique enough to stand on its own merits.

    In Minit, retro Zelda charm meets a world as sweet as it is weird, with more incentive to explore minute by minute.

    New game by the developers of Luftrausers and Nuclear Throne is heavily based on 2D Zeldas and although it does not add much to the formula, it removes a lot of distractions, which makes it a compact and very fun little adventure. [06/2018, p.66]

    To die every 60 seconds could quickly get old, but Minit is smart enough to avoid any kind of frustration during the adventure. Purposely minimalistic, the pixelated art direction shines with personality.
