I have a new obsession. It’s a video game (no surprise), but it’s the best “endless runner” game I’ve come across in… ever.

I rarely ever play games on my phone (I know, how strange.) But it’s because I have my phone with me almost 24/7 and games tend to distract me from what I tend to do on my phone (like work). But the other day, I was bored in bed and decided it was time I try out a new game. So I downloaded Despicable Me: Minion Rush. And… I ended up staying up past 3 in the morning playing with these little minions!

You can download it for iOS + Android devices

I’ll make this simple. What I like about it:

  • Those cute ass minions!!! I play it with the sound on and I find myself just laughing my ass off at their little giggles lol
  • It’s FREE! (You can spend money on more bananas + coins if you’d like)
  • The track is different EVERY TIME! (This is HUGE!)
  • The camera angle changes sometimes, forcing you to rethink your swiping dramatically. (I didn’t like this at first because I always lost, but then I got the hang of it)
  • There are multiple environments to explore and special boss fights to survive mid-game
  • It’s challenging enough to keep playing and not get bored of it
  • Really fun extras like the unicorn (ride it as you collect bananas in the air) and mega minion (where you turn intoa  giant minion and a wicked score multiplier is activated)
  • The whole experience is really beautiful with fine details, colour and a really creative game design

What I didn’t like about it:

  • Though the graphics are impressive, it does get choppy at times (I know this has a lot to do with my own device, so if you have a faster phone you might not have this problem.) We all know how annoying it is to die because of choppy gameplay!

Here’s the gameplay trailer so you can get a feel for it. Trust me… it’s amazing! The best “endless runner” game EVER. I just hope they maintain it even after the movie comes out.

Do you play video games on your phone? What’s the latest game you’ve been obsessing over? (Please don’t say Candy Crush….)
