I like this kind of 8bit stylish minigames. It's groovy, cool and very smart, because there is a good story simplified to an easy gameplay in a very stylish visualisation. YEAH, don't forget the sound/music, because it wouldn't work without that. For me it's more like an interactive story, than a typical game. So it's more like a visual novel without tons of text.
I like it exactly how it is, but one thing. It lends itself to be a highscore game to have a better impulse for replay.
