  • Excerpt: Role playing games are generally known to be builders of patience. Half-Minute Hero breaks the mold. The player has thirty seconds to stop the evil character(s). This involves leveling up, solving puzzles (like finding a secret path to the castle, or fixing a broken bridge). Sound impossible?

  • Excerpt: Do you ever wish that RPGs weren't so long and time-consuming? That it didn't require so much grinding? Do you ever long for the days of classic 8-bit RPGs that didn't have elaborate battle systems or intricate leveling or skill system?

  • Pros: Fun and funny, Quick pace, Engaging game modes
  • Cons: Grows repetitive, Though deliberate, graphics are incredibly primitive, Other game modes aren't as inspired as the main Hero 30 mode
