General Tips

  • As you complete tasks, Gru tokens will become available to you for doing so. Make sure you don't forget to claim them. Minion Rush is sneaky about not really explaining this.
  • When you see a large patch of green runway coming up, get ready to take control of your minion using your device's tilt functionality. Make very gentle movements and concentrate on surviving rather than grabbing every last banana.
  • It's always worth bumping into fellow minions, rather than grabbing the handful of bananas nearby, as this will increase your score multiplier.
  • To take them out just be in the nearest lane to them; your minion will automatically take care of the rest.
  • When fighting against Vector, you have to avoid the large units that he drops onto the lanes, but fire the shielded units back at him. Tap on the explosive objects to send them hurtling toward his ship.
  • Most upgrades can be bought using the bananas you've collected, and we recommend prioritizing the Minion Shield first, so you can survive a collision on the course.
  • Pay attention to the goals that you're given throughout the game as they will reward you with a generous chunk of tokens to help you continue on in the game after taking a tumble.
  • You can switch lanes while you're in mid-air.
  • Running out of tokens and getting annoyed with the Revive timer message? Tap rapidly on the screen, anywhere outside of the Revive box, and you'll be able to start up a new game in no time at all. Note that if you do want to Revive, it'll cost more with each successive use in any single run.
  • Always try grabbing the Fluffy Unicorn icon when it appears on the screen. You'll need to unlock it from the store first, but once active this mini-game gives you the chance to earn some serious bananas. Use your tilt controls to steer the unicorn through the massive columns of currency.
