Game Review - Minit


Cursed with a minute-long lifespan, a beaked hero needs your help to break the hex. You’ll navigate a black-and-white world full of colorful characters for a mere sixty seconds at a time, quickly solving a variety of puzzles and building on your progress. Simple gameplay and a charming retro aesthetic make Minit an absolute joy to play while it lasts.

Minit is rich with personality and minimalist flair. The ambitious blend of Groundhog Day and Legend of Zelda succeeds in every aspect. Progression feels intuitive and the concept doesn’t have a chance to wear thin before the game ends. It’s not necessarily a timeless classic, but it’s a great way to spend an hour and a half. Or 90 lifetimes.
