Half-Minute Hero For Almost Half The Price

By Spencer . January 31, 2010 . 10:20am


If you’ve been waiting for a Half-Minute Hero price drop now is your chance to get the game. Gamestop cut Half-Minute Hero from $29.99 to $19.99.


Half-Minute Hero is a compilation of lightning fast games that span an epic battle. Summon monsters as a sun shy Evil Lord, blast elephants with arrows as a Princess, and save the world from a destruction spell in 30 seconds as a Hero equipped with a fly swatter. After you finally save the world, Half-Minute Hero unlocks an awesome bonus mode.


As a clever parody and one of last year’s most creative games Half-Minute Hero is every penny. Grab it before the money hungry time goddess demands more gold coins.

    If you haven’t bough this game yet, you have no excuse to now. It’s amazing. Get on it!

  • Amazon UK is doing pre-orders for this for £12.99.

    • badmoogle

      Indeed.I preordered it one week ago!

  • ECM

    The RPG chapters are quite good, but the rest of it is like a bunch of bad, Flash, games.

  • Soma

    I avoided picking this up because of the price. But, like Ereek said, I have no excuse now.
    Will be picking this up this week. =3

      I was too cheap to pay $30 before too knowing that price would drop eventually (like most Wii games have a tendency to go down to $19.99), got it from Amazon for $17.49, they’re pretty weird w/ their sudden price slash and gold box deals, sometimes you just have to stay vigilant.

      $20 for a physical copy beats the digital now.

      • Soma

        Still the biggest issue with digital sales is when the price is the same (or more) than the physical copy.

        Also, $17.49 off Amazon is a sweet deal. Did you get other stuff at the same time for free shipping?

        • Aoshi00

          yeah, had to add up to $25 for free shipping, which isn’t too hard to do, especially considering I buy almost all my games and blu-ray movies thru them. I love the US box art as well.

      • kupomogli

        I also picked the game up at an Amazon price drop. Awesome game.

  • Slashlen

    Great game for this price.

  • GameStop Online is having a 15% off promotion when you purchase two in-stock games priced $19.99 and up with this code: “SAVE15”.

    I would have also recommended Retro Game Challenge, but it’s currently not available…

  • *shakes fist* I should’ve waited for the price drop! Oh well I enjoyed it regardless!

  • 2/3 isn’t “almost half”.
