Despicable Me: Minion Rush is highly addicting parkour game that you've probably spent several hours running your minion through different stages in order to collect bananas, Gru tokens, and fruit. It's very similar to Temple Run, but the major characters are the Minions in Despicable Me. Here are our top tips, hints, and cheats for advancing in Minion Rush, no real money required!


Survival of the Fittest

The game isn't all about grabbing every last banana, but about survival. If you run out of lives you fail, no matter how many bananas you grab, so when you encounter large patches of green runway get ready to take control of your minion using your device’s tilt functionality as these areas are particularly slippery.


Character's upgrade and level up

While survival is the basic aim we need to achieve in game, getting upgraded and leveling up can be also important. Most character upgrades and level ups can be purchased in game with just the bananas you collect. Sometimes I'll run through levels just to collect bananas and stock up.

Bumping into Fellow Minions

It is always worth bumping into Minions rather than grabbing some bananas, as this will increase your scoring multiplier. Simply get into the nearest lane to them and your Minion will do the rest.


The goals on the game are not very hard to complete, but they do reward you with generous amounts of tokens to help you continue. They will also open new environments up, so make sure you pay attention to them.


Save the Evil Minion for especially tough challenges

Once you've unlocked the PX41 serum, you'll be able to transform into Evil Minion. While in this mode, you'll be able to destroy anything in your path. When you're faced with a challenge that requires you to have an insanely high Despicable bonus, or you need to plow past a tough obstacle so you don't have to cash in Gru tokens to continue, these are the times you'll want to activate the Evil Minion. Just remember you can only use it every few hours so use it with care.


Upgrade your power-ups wisely

As you get further into runs, you'll notice bonus items that you can use to help you along. Powering these up can be done from the main menu. You'll have to cash in your bananas and tokens though so it's important to choose wisely. For example, if you're going into a challenge that requires you to break through a lot of ice using the freeze ray, level up the freeze ray by cashing in bananas. This will make the challenge a lot easier and allow you to advance faster.
There are a few power-ups that are always safe bets and always benefit you, and those are the ones that net you large amounts of bananas. So be sure to level up the Banana Splitter and the Fluffy Unicorn whenever you can. More bananas means more upgrades.


Collect your silver prize pods

While you only need one fruit to advance to the next level, you can keep running in order to collect 2 more. Essentially, this is just like getting a 3 star bonus. Some items you'll want to collect can be obtained through collecting enough fruits in each stage, like puzzle pieces to unlock costumes. You may be able to advance but you'll need a specific number to collect a silver prize pod, even more for a Despicable multiplier. Both are worth having so trace your steps and be sure you're completing each level to the best of your ability.


Log in daily

This goes along with my tip about Facebook but in case you didn't realize, every day that you log in to Minion Rush, you'll get a banana bonus. This isn't dependent on Facebook so even users that don't tie to a Facebook account will get the banana bonus daily. If you do though, you'll also get a Gru token for coming back every day.

Disco Room

Whilst playing in Gru's lab watch out for a pipe to your right with Bananas on it. You can steer toewards that for a bonus portion of the game in the Disco Room.
