Minit delivers sixty-second bursts of fun in an innovative and entertaining format. When you’re faced with a task, you search for a weapon. When you find a sword, you discover it’s cursed, and a timer begins. After one minute passes, your character dies and wakes up back at home. The important events you influenced in that minute stay, but everything else resets.
Every second counts
Minit is an enjoyable adventure game with a twist where minutes of play add up to hours of fun.
In a title where you can only make progress one minute at a time, there’s plenty to do, and the result is that you want to play more and more. The game is a great way to spend a few minutes to hours at a time.
Once you have a feel for the concept, the game is easy to play. The joystick-style controls are simple to pick up, so anyone can try their hand at it. The feedback is fast, which prevents any frustration because your tap on the screen didn’t work. This is especially important when your matches last one minute; every second counts!
Most importantly, there are plenty of tasks to complete, and you can be sure that a short storyline won't damper the entertainment. Once you finish the entire campaign, you can go back and find the objects you missed, start a new game with a shorter clock, or race against others.
If you want to play on the go on your iPhone, you can't continue on your iPad, as there isn’t an iCloud sync option. If you go a few days without playing, it can be hard to get back into the game. This is because you start a new day back at home, with few reminders of your progress so far. It’s terribly difficult to remember where you last finished.
