3D Dot Game Heroes is more than a Zelda homage. It has mini-games too! Block Defense (pictured above) is a tower defense style game where you place fire, slow, missile, and arrow blocks that attack monsters running on a map. The screenshots also imply your character can join in on the action a la South Park: Let’s Go Tower Defense Play.
Dash Race is exactly what it sounds like, a footrace mini-game. You can earn prizes by playing this if you complete the course fast enough.
