A minigame (also spelled mini-game or mini game) is a short video game often contained within another video game. A minigame is always smaller or more simplistic than the main game in which it is contained. They usually appear as an extra activity for entertainment, to train the characters, or to obtain specific items. Sometimes they also appear during the story, and must be completed to progress.
