Customer Reviews


I love this game. It's the only game I have on my phone. It's truly my stress reliever. BUT, why do we collect bananas only to not be able to use them. I have over 2 million bananas and there's nothing I can do with them. I am recommending that we should be able to turn bananas into coins and/or purchases. Yes we were able to upgrade certain power ups with bananas but that was ages ago. I am asking you to please make it to where we can use the bananas. Other wise they are pointless. And also when collecting items during special missions why can't we play other missions/levels in the same area and there are no items to collect. So what I'm saying is during a special mission if we go to the jelly lab and it's the same level as the special mission there should be items there as well until the special mission is over. It would help speed up the process and you will have way more people participate in the level that's after the special missions. Just saying.....

Great for new players, unrewarding the for long term

It used to be a good game, but I guess they aren't making as much money as they used to. Perhaps $20-30 costumes aren't selling because they've started padding the game with lots of ads. The most blatant ad was the special mission advertising the new animated movie 'Sing', instead of a Christmas/holiday themed mission (the Sing advertising is a little stupid if you're in Europe for example, where the movie hasn't opened yet).

And now we're a good way into January and there's a side mission to collect presents? Game loft have a really messed up calendar.

Let's talk about bananas shall we? Years have gone by and game loft has done nothing for players who have accumulated millions of them. It's in their FAQs, they might as well say we don't care about your millions of bananas, because look, over here!!! Now you can collect blueprints instead! And when blueprints become boring look here! Costume improver tickets! If bananas weren't a central minion theme they'd be better off ditching them.

The game has expanded in a badly thought out way in an effort to stay current. The latest 3 lap event with marketplace tickets shows the level of desperation they have over the game. I feel sorry for people that have spent money on this game, it must be increasingly frustrating.

It's Great

This game is really fun. I think all the scenes are amazing. The minions do the funniest and cutest things even when you fail. It would be nice if you had better control over when you can use equipment, such as the minion shield. And it would be nice if the bananas you collected had a little more value towards costumes and rewards. I've played this game for well over a year. The costumes offered are often useless or offer the same skills a costume you already have offers. And some of the levels have gotten to be so difficult that it isn't as much fun. But the graphics are amazing and the Gameloft people seem to put a lot of effort into making the game better.
