Half-Minute Hero: Super Mega Neo Climax is an updated re-release of the 2009 PSP title Half-Minute Hero. As in the original, the game is structured roughly like a Japanese RPG, tasking the player with fighting enemies to earn experience and gold, finding information and buying items in towns, completing quests to further the story, joining up with NPCs, and finally defeating the boss. The key difference is that there is a strict 30-second time limit before the world is destroyed. Time can be turned back for a price, but it gets increasingly expensive.

The largest addition to this new release is the all-new "Neo Cartoon" mode which replaces the original sprite graphics with an HD vector graphics makeover, though the game can also still be played with the original PSP graphics. There are also several new missions added to the mission tree, as well as an online multiplayer mode where up to four heroes can race to defeat the boss. However, several of the additional modes from the PSP version have been cut, reducing the Dark Lord 30, Princess 30, and Knight 30 modes to single missions that play much like the main Hero 30 mode. The Goddess' Room from the original game has also been removed. [source:mobygames]
