I'm making a game that is similar to 4 second frenzy and wario ware inc, and i need ideas for what mini games to make in it. These ideas need to fit into a 5-6 second time frame, need to be possible to play with only arrow keys and a space bar, and need to be pretty simple. Depending how helpful people are, you will either be mentioned by name or by something along the lines of "thanks for the help from the members of the armor games community". So just list ideas for me and if i like them i will put them in my game.

How about one where your character is running and you have to jump and duck to avoid spikes on the floor and ceiling and possibly swinging objects?
Also one where you are standing at the center of the screen with a shield and you have to turn to deflect incoming objects with the shield.
Howabout one where you are free falling and you have to steer away from birds.

I can adapt some of those but please expand on the second one (also you don't need to give me the scene, just what your doing in the game aka instead of "one where you are free falling and you have to steer away from birds." say "one where you are falling and dodging objects)

The second one is basically, say there is a circle that you must protect from projectiles that go to it. You have a shield, basically an arc that protects the circle from projectiles coming from a limited range of angles, you can press left/right or use the mouse to turn this shield around(with the circle being protected as the turning axis) so that the shield protects the circle from incoming projectiles from a different angle. So basically the circle stays in the same place and you rotate the shield to make incoming projectiles hit the shield instead of the circle. I'm sure there are plenty of games like this but it should be very qimple.

I know an equation to rotate something in a circle so i can try this.

Maybe if i can make a short enough one that's not dumb

Play a song w/ arrow keys.

Probably not because its the same thing as "A press the buttons as shown."

Hang glider land.

Thats a good one

Dodge objects.

Already made that one

Any others i didn't mention are also good.

I always liked playing these types of games, but you have to make something new and innovative.

Some mini-game ideas:
- You have a jetpack and you have to fly to a destination
- You're in a car and you have to button-mash to clear the jump
- You have to button mash to get xnumber of hits
- Make a hamburger the right way, with a matching picture in the top right (I'm starving at the moment, lol)
- Shoot the targets but with limited ammo

Those are just some random thoughts that came to mind =p

Not sure how to do that with only arrows keys and 5 seconds.

Button mashing is always the same thing so I'm going to try to avoid it.

Screen has the ingredients on the left. You scroll through them with up/down, then use space on each on to put the ingredients together. Sorta hard to explain.
