Summary: The sequel of sequels is here. The game the world didn't know it was waiting for. The return of the messiah. The most brilliant, the freshest, and the most entertaining tongue-in-cheek satire of console RPGs ever created. That's right, there's only 30 seconds to save the world and that must mean...

Excerpt: Half-Minute Hero is not a traditional RPG. Some would argue that it is not really an RPG at all, and wouldn't be completely wrong. It would also not be wrong to say that Half-Minute Hero features a collection of puzzle games with a heavy RPG candy-coating, along with hints of other genres.
