General Information

Available on:PlayStation 4Feb 10, 2015
PlayStation 5Nov 12, 2020

Developer: Red Phantom Games

Genre: Arcade

Simply explained, 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). The key mechanic is that the size of the circle can be changed. Go small to stay safe and dodge through the dark energy. Go large to collect more light and, critically, boost your score multiplier.

A clever, abstract take on a bullet hell shooter that breaks the action up into very short bursts. It's challenging, fun to play and very addictive. A great indie game to play between AAA titles.

Minutes does exactly what it says on the tin and it does it beautifully, which is quite a feat considering developer Red Phantom Games is actually just one person, Richard Ogden. An essential title for on-the-go gaming on PS Vita, and a damn fine puzzler on PS4.

'Minutes' might be a minimalist game, but it's not a simple one, and while Red Phantom Games' latest can be beaten in an hour, it'll last most gamers much longer.

Simple like a classic Swatch watch, it's Minutes' exceptional mechanics that make this indie worth your time. Clean, colourful, and effortlessly cool, this is a reminder that you don't need a million dollars to make something special.
