Just a Few Glitches

This is one of my favorite games! I would give it 5 stars, but there are just a few glitches. Gru's Rocket has been messing up. Sometimes, when you ride it, it stops for you to go into the secret area, or sometimes the slide, when you come down & start riding the rocket again, it will go into another one of the power ups, like Mega Minion, but still be making the sounds from the rocket. Once it messes up, it will keep going that way until it makes you crash. Also, there are times, in the Arctic Base when you run on top of one of the ramps, when you come down, there is a spring to jump you over the next one, but you don't automatically get put on the spring so you crash into the wall when you would've otherwise kept going. One more thing, when your task is to jump over obstacles, most of the time, jumping from one ramp to another, especially to avoid falling into a pit, doesn't get counted. Why is that? And would you please change it? And, what about that speed escalator thing that you end up burning yourself on when you touch it? I don't like that!


Please remove electric tracks. Too hard to beat these tracks as they are now. Either remove them or make it less challenging to pass them. As it now I can't pass them without using a free revive or unless I have my golden shield activated. Way too challenging for younger players to pass levels now. PLEASE GIVE US BACK OUR REWARD GOLDEN PRIZE PODS FOR GETTING ALL THE FRUITS IN ONE AREA!! Can't believe you replaced the golden pods with stuff for minion races. Not everyone plays the minion races but everyone can use stuff from golden pods. I was saving my golden pods so my younger family members wouldn't use all my prizes up & now they are all gadget pods. Please bring back or at least give option of getting golden pods as reward for entering new jelly area.

UPDATE: Are you kidding me?!!
You added red zones into the special missions?!!! This is ridiculous. Why do you keep making game harder??? This game is geared towards family play & kids. No reason to make game so hard.

Really needs an "are you sure" button

I'm really fed up with my tokens going to something I didn't want them to just because I accidentally pressed a little harder than normal on something costing tokens. I'm trying to save up for the dad costume but when I went to look through the other costumes I scrolled too hard on the football player and lost over 200 tokens! You need to add an "are you sure?" Button when anything is spent whether it be tokens, bananas, or real cash to give people a chance to say "wait no I didn't want to do click that."
