Minit Walkthrough

3. Story walkthrough

Before we begin, please remember that one achievement is tied to not killing snakes. I repeat, do not kill snakes!

Directions are given as number of screens and direction. For example, "1 North" means move up one screen, and "2 West" means move two screens left.

If you get stuck on any instruction, pause the game immediately (which stops the timer). Because of the achievement linked to completing the game quickly, it is important that you try to carry out all the instructions as best you can!

SPAWN 1

You'll start the game from your House, which is also the place you will respawn for the time being.

Leave House and head 1 South and 1 West. Collect the Sword to unlock...

ADVENTURER in Minit
ADVENTURER15 (15)
FIND YOUR FIRST ITEM
  • Unlocked by 1,506 tracked gamers (99% - TA Ratio = 1.00) 1,518

The sword is used by pressing cn_A and can be used to cut bushes and kill enemies.

Head 1 East and kill the crabs, before heading 1 East again. Cut the bush at the top-right.

Head 1 North. Collect the Watering Can.

As you can only hold one item, you'll drop the sword. When you die, you will spawn with either the Watering Can or Sword, whichever you were holding when you died. Whichever you weren't holding will be waiting for you outside the spawn point. The watering can is used by pressing cn_A and can be used to, well, water stuff.

Immediately recollect the Sword and head back to your House (1 South, 1 West, 1 North).

Head 1 West and cut the bush on the left and head 1 West. In this screen is the Café, which we'll come back to in a minute.

Head 1 North. Kill the crabs and return 1 South to the Café. You'll be presented with Coffee. Coffee allows you to push crates!

Leave the Café and head 1 North and 1 West. Cut the bush and push the crate and wait until there is one second remaining. Collect the Lighthouse Key to unlock...

PUNCTUAL in Minit
PUNCTUAL19 (15)
FIND AN ITEM, COIN, OR HEART WITH LESS THAN 1 SECOND LEFT (Secret)
  • Unlocked by 899 tracked gamers (59% - TA Ratio = 1.29) 1,518

If you are slightly too early, don't worry! There will be plenty of opportunity to get that achievement later with any item (if you're still unable to get it by the end of the game, start a new game, head to and pick up the sword and head to the watering can and wait until there is one second to go).

Press cn_B to Die

SPAWN 2

You'll spawn at House. Smash the pot and collect the Coin [1/19] to unlock...

TREASURE HUNTER in Minit
FIND YOUR FIRST COIN
  • Unlocked by 1,304 tracked gamers (86% - TA Ratio = 1.07) 1,518

  • Unlocked by 864 tracked gamers (57% - TA Ratio = 1.32) 1,518

Leave House, collect the Sword and head back to the Café (2 West).

Enter the Café and keep hitting the jukebox (usually about 9 hits) until the man in the bottom left starts dancing. Speak to him to unlock...

CONNOISSEUR in Minit
PLAY SOME REAL MUSIC (Secret)
  • Unlocked by 1,010 tracked gamers (67% - TA Ratio = 1.22) 1,518

Leave the café and head 1 West to the Lighthouse. Enter the Lighthouse, climb to the top and exit the door. Collect the Flashlight (if you didn't get PUNCTUAL last time, wait until the last second!)

cn_B Die

SPAWN 3

You'll spawn at House. Leave House and cut the bush at the top.

Head 1 North and enter Snake Cave. DO NOT KILL THE SNAKES.

Head around Snake Cave towards the top of the cave and keep left. Look for a hidden wall. Head 1 West through the hidden wall, head down and follow the wall around to the room. Hit the chest to collect Coin [2/19]. Leave the hidden space and exit Snake Cave.

Head 1 East. Wait for the bull to charge and hit it with sword. Continue this until you kill the bull (it takes 5-6 hits). Collect your first Heart [1/6] to unlock...

FIRST AIDER in Minit
FIND YOUR FIRST HEART
  • Unlocked by 1,226 tracked gamers (81% - TA Ratio = 1.11) 1,518

Head 2 East and enter the Caravan to unlock...

HOME OWNER in Minit
HOME OWNER32 (30)
UNLOCK A NEW HOME (Secret)
  • Unlocked by 1,360 tracked gamers (90% - TA Ratio = 1.05) 1,518

Entering the Caravan means this will be your new spawn point!

cn_B Die

SPAWN 4

It is important to remain at full health during this spawn!

You'll spawn at Caravan. Leave Caravan and head 1 East and 1 North. Hit the right-side of the dumpster to collect Coin [3/19].

Head back to the Caravan (1 South and 1 West) and pick up the Watering Can.

Head 3 South into the desert (avoid scorpions and cacti at all times!) and water the man who we see here. This man is known as the Sign Maker.

If you don't have full health then cn_B Die and move onto Spawn 5. Otherwise head 2 North and 1 East and enter the Secret Temple.

The Secret Temple has four doors, each of which leads to a challenge. The right door leads to a challenge that you must complete with the watering can at full health. So, head to the right door and water the fire.

Head 1 East and continue to water the fire and avoid enemies until you make it to the other side. Assuming you've made it to the other side at full health use the Watering Can on the chest and collect the Coin [4/19]. Well done, you've also completed your first Temple Challenge [1/4].

cn_B Die

SPAWN 5

You'll spawn at Caravan. Leave Caravan and head 2 South and 1 West. Here you'll see a tentacle, which is related to another collectible achievement. Hit the Tentacle [1/8] with your sword to unlock...

MARINE ENTHUSIAST in Minit
FIND YOUR FIRST TENTACLE
  • Unlocked by 1,154 tracked gamers (76% - TA Ratio = 1.14) 1,518

You now need to be fast in running around the desert as the next fight is on an RNG screen. Head back to the Temple (2 East, 1 North), and then keep heading 1 South and 1 North until a new screen appears with the Oasis Ghost!

You only need to hit the Oasis Ghost with your sword once to kill him, but he can teleport to any of the cacti, so methodically go around the edge of the oasis knocking them down, while avoiding his sword attack. Then strike him down with your sword to unlock...

EXPLORER in Minit
EXPLORER34 (30)
FIND AND DEFEAT THE OASIS GHOST
  • Unlocked by 1,186 tracked gamers (78% - TA Ratio = 1.12) 1,518

Your reward for this is being able to throw your sword. In all honesty there are very few times you need to do this in combat and the walkthrough will tell you when is best. To throw your sword, hold cn_A and release it.

From this screen head back to the Temple (it's likely to be 1 North) and enter the Temple. We're now going to start the Temple Challenge at the top. Hit the bush at the top. Head 1 North.

This room is special in that to unlock its secret you need to die here four times - once for each spawn point in the game. As you spawned in Caravan, dying here clears up that Temple Death [1/4].

cn_B Die

SPAWN 6

You'll spawn at Caravan. Leave Caravan and head 1 West and 1 South (be quick through the quicksand). You'll run past the Sign Maker who will thank you for the water and point you in the direction of a new item!

Head 1 West and enter the Cave. Collect the Gardening Glove. You sword has been upgraded and you can now cut trees down.

Leave the Cave and head 1 South and 1 West and cut the tree. Head around the water and 1 North. Enter House to set your spawn back at House.

Leave House and cut Bush to head 1 North. Chop the large tree down and collect Boatwood.

Head to the Café (1 South, 2 West) and 1 South.

Deliver Boatwood to the guy near the boat.

cn_B Die

SPAWN 7

You'll spawn at House. Leave House and cut bush at the top.

Head 1 North and push the crate in the top-left. Head 1 West and 1 North and throw your sword at the enemies to restore the bridge.

Head 1 North and enter the Building and collect the Press Pass (this doesn't give you any extra abilities, but is necessary later in the game). Leave the Building and cut the tree on the left.

Head 1 West and you'll push a crate. Look to the left-side of the screen and you'll see another tentacle. Unfortunately it is just out of reach, so you need to push the crate to directly above the tentacle and push it into the sea. Throw your sword at the Tentacle [2/8].

Head 1 North and run around the top of the trees (you don't need to chop them down), avoiding the guys that want to hurt you. Wait on this screen until there are ten seconds left and speak to the Guest that appears in the pond. This is part of a challenge which we're about to find out about and he is Guest [1/6].

Head 1 East and enter the Hotel. Go up a floor to set your spawn at Hotel.

As you entered the Hotel the hotel manager told you that six guests had run off. We need to go and find them all to unlock a new item! First thing's first...

cn_B Die

SPAWN 8

You'll spawn in Hotel. Go down a floor and leave Hotel.

Our first guest is visible when you head 1 North and hit a plant. You will be attacked by the Forest People, but once you've dispatched of them, speak to Guest [2/6] and he'll go back to the hotel. For a collectible later in the game you'll need to kill the Forest People twice more, so this is also Forest People [1/3].

Cut through the left trees and head 1 West. The guest here is in the plant pot and he wants to play "Hot and Cold" with you to guide him to his wallet. The wallet is in the bottom-left corner of the bottom-left rock island, and once you push him there he'll head back to the hotel (Guest [3/6])

Head 1 North and hit the wall to reveal a hidden entrance. Collect the Heart [2/6].

The rest of this spawn is not related to completing the story, but if you're very quick there is just enough time to grab an achievement!

Head 1 East and 1 North and enter the Haunted House. Keep heading upstairs until the TV says "This is the right floor!". Leave the house and speak to the ghost called Mary outside to unlock...

GHOST HUNTER in Minit
TALK TO MARY (Secret)
  • Unlocked by 947 tracked gamers (62% - TA Ratio = 1.26) 1,518

If you're not able to speak to Mary, don't worry, we'll go back to her in the Collectibles section.

cn_B Die

SPAWN 9

You'll spawn in Hotel. Go down a floor and leave Hotel and head 1 North and kill Forest People [2/3] again.

Chop the top tree and head 1 North and 1 East. Another guest is hiding in the trees here so cut them all down to reveal him and then speak to the Guest [4/6].

Head back to the Hotel (1 West and 2 South). There is an entrance at the back of the hotel (vertically in line with the door at the front). Enter it and move the crates and hit the pot to grab another Coin [5/19].

Leave the back of the hotel and head 1 East. You can see another Guest on the other side of the river, but we're not worried about him yet. Instead, head 1 North and push the left crate up, and the other crate right, and speak to the Guest [5/6].

cn_B Die

SPAWN 10

You'll spawn in Hotel. Go down a floor and leave Hotel and head 1 East. Again, we can see the final guest from here, but we need to open the bridge to allow him to get back!

Head 1 South and enter the Mine. Head 1 East, 1 North and 1 West. You're in a room with bombs that you'll want to detonate by throwing your sword at them (stand back!). Leave cave through the newly created exit.

Head 1 North and you'll be next to the guest! Head 1 more North and hit the top switch to open the bridge.

Return 1 South and speak to Guest [6/6] to unlock...

  • Unlocked by 1,009 tracked gamers (66% - TA Ratio = 1.22) 1,518

Head back to the Hotel (1 West) and climb the ladder to collect Flippers. You can now swim in water!

You also now have all the items needed to finish the game!

cn_B Die

SPAWN 11

You'll spawn in Hotel. Go down a floor and leave Hotel and head 2 East to enter the Factory. Head 1 East (through an area that would be blocked if you didn't have the Press Pass), and hit the paperwork. Look in the water cooler... Hit the Tentacle [3/8].

Head 1 South and enter the door. Head 1 North. This is the Boss Room and we'll be making a few trips back to here in our next couple of spawns. You'll notice that the Boss Room involves a machine that is manufacturing swords and ultimately we need to put a stop to it!

Hit the Generator on the left to allow you to head 1 West.

There are three visible crates on screen - you need to push each of them into the grinding machine on the left to break this side of the factory. The top-most box will need to be pushed all the way around the top of the machine whilst the other two can easily be pushed in from the bottom. Once that's done...

cn_B Die

SPAWN 12

You'll spawn in Hotel. Go down a floor and leave Hotel and head back to the Boss Room (Head 3 East and hit the paperwork. Head 1 South and enter the door. Head 1 North.)

This time head 1 East. In this room there are seven buttons situated around a conveyor belt. Travel counterclockwise (with the flow of the belt) and hit every button to break this side of the Factory.

Head back to the Boss Room (1 West) and then travel 3 South on the conveyor belt and hit the giant cog with your sword. You'll lose your sword. Boo.

cn_B Die

SPAWN 13

Now we only have the watering can which means there is little we can do. We need to head back to the Boss Room, but we can't get there the normal way because we can't hit our way through the paperwork, which means getting back to the sword is a long journey!

You'll spawn in Hotel. Go down a floor and leave Hotel and go back to the Cave (1 East and 1 South and enter the Cave).

Head 1 East and leave the Cave using the North exit. You'll recognise this room as the one where we had to push the crates onto the machine.

Head 1 East (the Boss Room!). Unfortunately the sword is South of here and we can't cut through, so head 1 East (to the room where we had to press the buttons) and 1 South. Go up the stairs.

Head 1 North, 1 West, 1 South and enter the door. You're now back in the room that is 1 South of the Boss Room, which means head 2 South to be reunited with your sword! Pour water on it and get the Mega Sword! Then, rather anti-climactically...

cn_B Die

SPAWN 14

This is it, we now have 11 spawns to kill the boss!

You'll spawn in Hotel. Go down a floor and leave Hotel and head back to the Boss Room (Head 3 East and hit the paperwork. Head 1 South and enter the door. Head 1 North.)

You'll see the machine looks much worse for wear and hitting it twice with the Mega Sword will reveal the boss and unlock...

SAFETY INSPECTOR in Minit
SHUT DOWN THE SWORD FACTORY
  • Unlocked by 982 tracked gamers (65% - TA Ratio = 1.24) 1,518

You'll spawn in the room with the boss when you die (and you will die), so we'll just concentrate now on his three phases rather than counting the number of spawns. When you respawn you'll be at the same stage you left the boss at, so you don't need to kill him in one spawn.

BOSS PHASE 1

Phase 1 is simple - you should only lose a maximum of one spawn here. There are eight swords around the boss, two below, two right, two above and two left. You simply need to hit each of the swords.

The bottom two are straightforward, but the other six are divided by the boss's constant attack. Push the crates to block the boss's attack to allow you to get to the other swords.

BOSS PHASE 2

Phase 2 is tougher - you may lose 2-3 spawns here. This time you need to hit each of the swords again, but this time they move and shoot swords back at you. After the swords attack you they have a cool down, which is your opportunity to strike! Keep an eye out for the one that is going to attack (it lights up) and then move towards it and attack it during cool down.

BOSS PHASE 3

Phase 3 is the most difficult and you could easily lose 5-6 spawns here. This time the boss has swords that spin around him (in a circle that gets bigger and smaller) and he fires swords at you. Luckily the objective is still just the same - hit the swords that spin around the boss. The easiest way to do this is to stand slightly back and throw your sword from a distance. There is not a huge amount of advice I can give here other than it is just a matter of timing your attacks for when the sword comes around the boss. Take out each of the swords and he'll be dead! Congratulations!

ENDGAME

Now the boss is defeated, your sword is broken. Dang, that's no use to anyone. Probably best to Head 1 North and 1 East and flush it down the toilet.
