TrickyMinute HardcoreSay you have a minute free in your schedule. What would you want to do with it? Cook an egg? Help Nicolas Cage steal a car? Blast the heck out of some multi-colored wireframed alien baddies? Well, if your choice would be the latter, then boy howdy do we have a treat for you. Minute Hardcore by Antony Lavelle is a timed arcade shooter with shades of the classic bullet-hell Ikaruga.

The sparseness of instructions is the game's biggest flaw, but generally, you direct your ship with the mouse, automatically shooting at the spacey invaders. Your bullets come in red, green and blue varieties, and you switch between them by clicking. However, since your bullets do not affect enemies of the same color, it soon becomes a game of constant chromatic changes as you try to keep one step ahead of the clock. When leveling up, you are given a choice between a ship upgrade or adding more time to the clock, which is a neat mechanic. This adds a nice little touch of strategy, even if the interface is a little clunky. There are a lot of cool ideas in Minute Hardcore. While it's true not all of them pay off, it is at least an interesting experiment. If you can spare 60 seconds, it'll be well worth your time.
