In Game[]

A Mini-game, not to be confused with microgame, is a game that is small and not big.

Well, there's more to it then that. Mini-games are typically small games that would be more appropriate as flash games that you play on your lunch break. Basically, games within games. They are included in bigger games for many reasons, such as breaking up the action, or offering some form of replay value. Games like Mario Party are entirely devoted to mini-games. Games like Banjo-Tooie allow you to replay mini-games in competitive multiplayer.

Mini-games are usually helpful in making a game better.
