Half-Minute Hero Review | The Portable Gamer

TPG writes: "I'm in love. Not with a girl…OK, there's someone I like, but my real love is Half Minute Hero. This game came into my life, and charmed the pants right off of me. Half Minute Hero, I love you. Your fast-paced gameplay, laced with RPG satire and humor struck a chord with me, and wormed a way into my heart like it was a missing piece.

why does this look like a crappy zelda clone?

It's an intentional look, it's meant to look like old 8 and 16-bit games.

Look! A gun! It's a Halo clone!
Look! Units! It's an Age of Empires clone!
Look! A skill tree! It's a World of Warcraft clone!
Look! Pixels! etc...

Honestly now, the only similarity this game shares is the graphics. Everything else is completely different.

Played the demo. NOW I'm waiting for the damn game to be released in my stores.

So how exactly does a game that works only in 30 second intervals manage to work?

You can rewind time. The game is real neat - check out the demos on PSN.
