Description

Minutemen is a 2d side-scrolling brawler designed as a tie-in with the 2009 Watchmen movie based on the comic book series by Alan Moore. The game is supposedly designed in 1977 by Veidt Enterprises, a fictitious mega corporation owned by Adrian Viedt (Ozymandias), a character from the series.

The game tells the story of Minutemen, an elite group of costumed heroes that inspired the formation of Watchmen. Players can choose between two characters, Nite Owl I or Silk Spectre I, with identical stages. With scan-lined graphics and a visual style reminiscent of Streets of Rage or Final Fight, both characters travel through three stages (identical regardless of the chosen protagonist) with a boss at the end of the final stage.

A character has three lives and the controls are fairly limited (punch, kick, jump) to take on the enemies. Objects in the environment can be deformed or trashed as well.
