Ever felt like your job was hell? ''Work Time Fun'' has that topped, as you literally are taking jobs in {{Hell}}.

A [[UsefulNotes/PlayStationPortable PSP-based]] [[MinigameGame collection of largely unrelated games]] with a hint of classic gaming flavor [[AffectionateParody and some fun jabs at gaming standards]], Work Time Fun was passed up for a US release initially when Sony published it as Baito Hell in Japan (which means Part-Time Hell in a [[BilingualBonus German/Japanese/English]] play on words). We eventually got it outside of Japan when D3 released it in the US on UMD, and later on the [[UsefulNotes/PlayStationNetwork PlayStation Store]].

Gameplay consists of selecting one of four available "jobs" (unlocked minigames) and being paid in-game money based on performance. The paychecks can then be spent at the various capsule machines to try to unlock more jobs, trinkets (useless collectibles), and tools, utilities built into the game like a calculator or a ramen timer. The player will also occasionally receive messages providing tips, titles, or just bizarre flavor.
!!''Work Time Fun'' provides examples of the following tropes:

* ButtonMashing: Surprisingly few of the games resort to this, though there are a few exceptions.
* CosmeticAward: The various trinkets you can get from the capsule machines. Titles also serve this purpose, being akin to achievements.
* DemonicPossession: The child in The Elf King is possessed by a demon. Your goal is to get help before it takes control of him.
* EndlessGame: A few of the games (ex. Lumberjack) simply go on until you fail.
* FiveFingerFillet: One of the minigames.
* FollowTheLeader: It owes a lot to ''Franchise/WarioWare.''
* FunWithAcronyms: The game's title, obviously.
* IronicHell: The game could be considered a case of this for the player.
* LuckBasedMission: You unlock things via capsule machines. There will almost certainly come a point when you need [[LastLousyPoint just a handful of unlocks from a particular rank of machine and it just won't get coughed up.]]
* MinigameGame
* NightmareFace: The child in The Elf King can put on some rather ghoulish faces as his health drops.
* MundaneUtility: You can unlock tools from the capsule machines. These are usually vary spartan, such as using your [=PSP=] as a flashlight, but the ramen timer stands out for being both functional and [[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext consisting of clips of a man or woman in a swimsuit doing calesthenics.]]
* PressXToNotDie: Wrestling Superstar, Cliff Racer 2000, and several others work on this premise.
* {{Retraux}}: Most of the games fall into this category, especially Baseball Superstar.
* StylisticSuck: Pendemonium is designed to be intentionally dull, consisting of nothing but putting caps on pens.
* UnwinnableByDesign: Some of the jobs have outrageous target goals, but most of them are ostensibly reachable. The most notable exception is Pendemonium, which has a counter that goes up to 999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999. It would take several magnitudes longer than the universe has existed to reach that score.
