I love Minions and Despicable Me: Minion Rush finally landed on BlackBerry 10 and it has been a whole lot of fun playing it. Already, we're seeing tweets of scoreboards being shared on Twitter and the game is on to get to the top position. The aim of the game is simple. You run through Gru's lab or residential area collecting bananas while avoiding obstacles. Every now and then you'll have to face villains, such as Vector or the girl scout who had cookie's stolen from her (from the movie). At the same time, there are other Minions pitted in many places during your run. Try and knock them off the track and be despicable to them in order to increase your multiplier level.
There are small missions to complete, too. Like 'Perform 20 Despicable Actions in the same run!', 'Ride the Fluffy Unicorn 50 times', 'Defeat Vector for the first time' and so on. You can skip some missions by using your tokens but I'd much rather achieve them by actually doing them. Better sense of achievement. Every so often, before or after you complete a run, you are offered power ups in exchange for bananas. These power ups then become available for you to catch during a run so you can use them. So, far I've have managed to use the Mega Minion, ride the Fluffy the Unicorn, use Gru's rocket and also a banana vacuum. These are just some of the ones available.
It is a tremendously addictive game that keeps me wanting more. There are also costumes that you can get buy using tokens and bananas, too. They do cost a lot of tokens and it may mean actually spending some dosh in order to get most of them.
Despicable Me: Minion Rush is available for all BlackBerry 10 smartphones and is free to download. So, there's no excuse not to download it, unless you don't like Minions but who doesn't love Minions? Check out the video above for a quick game play demo. Mind my small mistake, due to my excitement I called it Minions Rush, instead of Minion Rush.
