miniQuest: Trials is a 2D room based Platformer with beautiful Pixel-art graphics where it takes speed, skill, and fast reactions to beat each level in as little time as possible.

Can you beat all the levels and SECRET levels?

Arrow keys or WASD for commands
Z and Spacebar to jump
R = Reset level
Escape key = Return to Main Menu
M = Mute



Rated 4 / 5 stars

I played it on mute, so I'll have to take BraveWorks word for it on music.

As (s)he said, it's a great platformer. Maybe a little cookie cutter, but I don't care at all. It's a great little game and its a beautiful style in itself. But, I also have to agree that it feels a little unimaginative. It would be nice if the different levels had different color schemes at the very least, and maybe new types of tiles. I did go through ten levels and found nothing new.

Besides that, the game is very pretty and mostly bug free. I wish the jump could have been higher, but I think that's an intended mechanic, so no complaints. But the ladders seem to create problems when trying to jump from the top of them. It'd be nice if the top of the ladder, were, well, treated as a solid tile until I hit Down to start climbing down it.

The Par times feel a little low to be possible to do while also getting the chests. Without the chests, very much possible. It'd be nice if I got a little reward or even a message/dialog that told me I made the par time on the few that I did.

4/5 would play again. :>

It's a great platformer but it's a little cookie cutter, however, you have pulled off a great game and it could have been even better, had it been a little bit more imaginative.
+Very pretty
+Fitting music
+Well made
-Could have been more imaginative
-Could have had more varied scenery

Overall I enjoyed it a lot but it did feel a little repetitive due to a lack of diverse mechanics and similar scenery throughout. I'd definitely play it again sometime though! :D Keep up the great work!

Good game, well developed and put together. Great music! However I found the levels to be a bit repetitive, though I have to admit I'm not the biggest platformer :P definitely a cool game though!

I like this game. It's well thought-out, keeps your interest, and is very user friendly. It's also not too easy, but not too difficult, either. Wonderful job!

Thanks! We actually tried to go on the super hard side for later levels (and dedicated players) to give a meatboy type feel to the game.
