Inspired by a need to rebel against AAA titles, I've designed a minimalist game. Minutes is all about gameplay purity. There are no cutscenes or dialogue trees here. It's stripped down to the fundamentals - move, collect, avoid, gauge risk vs. reward, think and react.
The challenge unfolds across 60 one-minute levels, chasing the score targets and other goals with different "energy shapes" to test you and various power-ups to unlock and assist you.
The mechanics at the game's core are simple: the player controls a circle and moves it around the screen to collect light energy shapes (for points) and avoid dark (which damage the player).
