Rushed and botched Valentines update

The latest update was seriously rushed and botched. Textures were missing and later patched in. The mission did not even work until a later in-game patch was pushed out. Then the timer for the special mission was always wrong so you got jipped at the end because you had no idea when the end was.

The money grab is getting worse, too. Drop rates for the items in the special mission were tiered with the roses dropping at half the rate of the cakes. I assume this was intended to make people spend coins to get the skateboard in order to finish. Plus, the skateboard is literally useless without a costume that extends the time (which again costs coins). Contests are full of cheats (someone literally had a score in the trillions and a multiplier in the millions; tell me that is actually possible)

Add this to the list of unfixed bugs still around from previous patches and it is grating. I have been playing for 13 months now, but I think I hit my saturation point. It is a good game, so it is frustrating to quit on a sour note.

Tokens are so precious

I love the minions and I'm addicted to this game. However, it does have a few problems.

1. In some of the events contests, why are the silver prize pods a higher prize than some of the tokens prize? Example, I finished in the top 500 in a contest and won 2 silver prize pods. I could have won 30 tokens if I dropped down to the top 1000, and I much rather prefer that. Silver prize pods just give you junk like bananas or minion launcher (which can be bought with bananas).

2. It is so easy to accidentally spend/waste your tokens with a simple touch of a button. They should always give a "are you sure" message before finalizing the use of these tokens. Especially for the special mission at the end of a run when you have the option to spend tokens to recharge the battery. I'm afraid I may accidentally push the button sometime and waste up to 320 tokens!

3. There is an obvious glitch that many people are pointing out regarding the battery for the special mission. I doesn't always seem to recharge when the app is closed.

On a positive note, I love the new videos for the special Wedding mission. Too cute and hilarious! :D

Unfair and glitchy

I used to love this game before the jelly lab was added. Now all my progress is gone and I can't get to other places. Also, when battling Meena, it's super unfair, because I will have my finger on her stupid little cookie bot but it just runs me over anyway. And by the time she throws the small ones, it's timed out!

Also, sometimes it will randomly not take my commands! I will move my finger up and it will not do anything! It randomly glitches, such as I ducked under a water fountain and it made me start over anyway. And it keeps having to do updated pretty much every month, and they are rushed and very glitchy. Not only that but after the update is done you have to watch a video that I know by heart by now, and have another long loading session.

It's a really fun game but it's really frustrating!
