I know what you’re probably thinking: Why on Earth does this game even exist? More importantly, why would anyone bother playing it? If ever there was a seemingly less appealing idea for a videogame then you’d be hard pressed to find it and mowing lawns surely has to rank pretty low on anybody’s list of ‘Things I wish there were more of in games.
Few games have come to define gaming like the infamous Grand Theft Auto series. From its first iteration as a top-down game with a focus on trigger-happy rampages and endless automotive civilian slaughter, it quickly became synonymous with games that pushed the boundaries of the video game experience.
It’s mad to think that it’s already two decades since the original Xbox console came out.
Back when the original Far Cry arrived on the scene it became a prime example of what could be done with open environments and delivered some truly stunning graphics which were way above what had been delivered elsewhere at the time.
12 Minutes is an engrossing and intriguing point-and-click puzzle game based around a seemingly never-ending time loop and a strange man with a penchant for murder.

If you enjoy driving games but fancy smashing and crashing your way to victory, then this game could be right up your street.
