Despicable Me: Minion Rush update brings new characters, locations and mini-games

Published by at

Back at the end of 2013, Gameloft's themed infinite runner 'Despicable Me: Minion Rush' was well thought of here in our review, but things went quiet and we all thought that the game had ceased development. However, we now have a big update, with multiple characters, new mini-games, and new locations. If your kids are going crazy for 'minions' at the moment because of the new movie then point them towards this updated game and they'll be happy for hours...

Here's the quoted changelog:

  • Choose between Dave, Carl or Jerry to run with in Minion Park and Eduardo's House! Hop on a skateboard, do tricks with a BMX or try the high-flyin' mini-game!
  • 2 new environments: Minion Park and Eduardo's House
  • 2 new Minions: Carl and Jerry
  • 3 new mini-games: Skateboard, BMX and Minion Glider

Some promo screens of the new action, it's the same three lane tap-tap-tap gameplay, but with high production values, top notch performance on Windows Phone and the new mini-games will add a new lease of life.


You can grab Despicable Me: Minion Rush here in the Store. It's freemium, of course, so make sure your Store is protected with a PIN if you do hand your phone over to your kids!
