A kind of simple game, most often of an arcade or logical nature. Usually, the mini-game is part of a larger production, in which it plays the role of one of the challenges faced by the player or a cut-scene that diversifies the actual gameplay.
Sometimes mini-games are released in compilations (e.g. O.M.G. 26 – Our Mini Games) intended mainly for recipients from the so-called casuali (occasional players).
