Half-Minute Man, does whatever he possibly can

Games I beat in 2015 - #23: Half Minute Hero

I cannot remember why I bought Half Minute Hero. Was it a recommendation from a friend? A moment of curiosity? I played the game on my PSP, I am fairly sure, but then later got rid of the physical media and obtained it on PSN. Probably via UMD Passport? Why else would I have purchased it again? Memory fades.

This year has gone by in the blink of an eye, not unlike how the thirty seconds our daring hero has to beat the various tasks before The End of the World in each chapter of Half Minute Hero.

Receiving much assistance and much sass from the hilariously written Goddess of Time. It feels like a love letter to RPGs from an author who cannot help to remind you of your slightly plump belly, but at the same time it is part of the reason they are so attracted to you.

The game was fast paced, a charm, but ultimately left me wanting a more traditional RPG to play instead of the various modes unlocked after completing the basic one.
