Our Review:

Despicable Me: Minion Rush is an endless running game with excellent graphic design featuring the famous characters Minions in the successful American 3D computer-animated film.

Unlike Temple Run, this game does not have an enemy chasing behind you, but the basic gameplay is similar. You need to run fast and far to score as many points as possible to advance to new levels. It is easy to play the game with simple finger gestures—swipe left or right to move the Minion to the left or right track, or swipe up and down to jump and roll to dodge obstacles, while collecting virtual currencies known as bananas and tokens along the way in the missions.

Minion Rush supports motion controls as well. When you're sliding along the track, diving with the slippers, riding Gru's rocket or something else, you can tilt your device to control your movements.

Nonetheless, this 3D platform game evolves with unique twists. At certain stage, it switches to a side view to challenge your ability to control the Minion and react to fast movements.

To get high scoring and increase the score multiplier, you have to become a good Minion and be despicable to destroy everything you can, knock other Minions off the track and prove to the world how despicable you are.

Three different Minions, Dave, Carl and Jerry are featured in this fun-filled and fast-paced game. Dave has a lot of additional consumes to equip and cause more mischief, Carl accelerates the fastest and Jerry lasts longer with power-ups.

If you sign in to your social network account, you'll be able to see which of your friends are playing the game, check their profiles on the leaderboard and challenge them to break high scores.

Although it's absolutely free to play this game, it allows you make a purchase with real money for upgrades and skipping waiting times.
