The Games That Time Forgot – Half-Minute Hero, PSP

Today we look at a game that has won many awards including PSP Game Of The Year in 2009, Half Minute Hero. The game was released in the same year, it was developed by Marvelous Entertainment and published by Rising Star Games. Half Minute Hero was a role playing shooting game that also could be defined as an action game. The game had 6 different modes but begins with only 3 and you have to complete them to open the final trio.

The six different modes are focused on one part of a much larger narrative hence the reason only three are open originally. Each of the modes is based around the same thirty seconds and you can play as the hero, the Princess and the evil lord who all have a different goal to complete. As well as having different goals to achieve, they also have a different style of game to play – for example the hero is a role playing game where as the Knight mode you open later on is an action game.

The game also comes with a multilayer mode as well but it is very limited and the main aim of that is to complete a mission before the other. Half Minute Hero got a lot of positive reviews and like I mentioned above won a handful of awards as well. There was a sequel called Half Minute Hero:The Second Coming that was released on Windows and Steam in 2014.
