I LITERALLY PLAY EVERY DAY but, there need to be some changes

There is this glitch in minion beach, when you are finished with the slide it drops you to the ground immediately, where it used to send you off of the slide on an arch; therefore this glitch deprives you of 50+ bananas, and additionally throws off the player big-time. Well I can say it at least throws off me. Additionally the rocket has glitches when it is interrupted by random factors such as entering a new area or entering the slide at Minion beach, in that once you enter the next area or exit the slide at Minion beach, the point of view is still that of the rocket and makes it very difficult to continue the run. Another factor that I would like to see change is the capability of purchasing more items with bananas instead of Tokens. Now I know that you just want our money but there comes a point for every player where you just can't buy anything anymore with bananas besides a Minion Launcher. Now I know that collecting the bapples every day is a chance to get more tokens, but when you award us more bananas three times out of every week it kind of gets discouraging to actually purchase tokens in that we kind of give up hope in the App altogether. I love this game I've been playing it I swear for over an year... Or more. So please, take this rating into consideration.
Sincerely, a frequent player.

PX41 issues BUT game is still GREAT'n

This game is simply addictive. PX41 power up is cool but to have the icon on the bottom left of my screen with the countdown timer is a huge letdown during game play. I use my iPhone to play and as I swipe to move my minion around obstacles I am constant going into "pause" mode which disrupts the flow of the game... No me gusta!!! Fix this annoying bug by taking icon away from play screen!!

Update: May 25, 2014

Still having issues with the PX 41 solution icon at the bottom of my iPhone screen. The flow of the game is seriously interrupted as when I slide my finger across my phone screen and I accidentally hit the icon it causes a temporary pause in the game which is very frustrating!!! Not only that, but I have noted on several occasions that the timer is off on the PX 41 Serum. I upgraded to lower my weight time to 11 hours. On several occasions that 11 hours has taken more like 24 hours until I've been able to use the serum again. Please fix this bug for iPhone users who experience this issue! Perhaps, you could only allow the PX 41 icon to appear between between Missions (Minion Beach to AVL) as a QUICK reminder to the player as to how much time is left to utilize the serum again and then automatically have the icon appear on the screen when the countdown reaches T minus 5 mins. Just a suggestion! 😄

I love minion rush but there are a few issues

I've been playing minion rush for almost a year and I love it! Just a few things though: the Px serum timer is off. Sometimes I can't use it again for over 24 hours even though it's only suppose to take 11 hours between usage. Also, sometimes when I do mega minion or the fluffy pony and come back to regular game play I will immediately fall off the track if there's a gap and I have to use a bouncer to get to the other side. I don't think that's fair since there's no time to react, the minion just falls off as soon as I return to gameplay. I would love to have the minion automatically pushed to the other side or a little bit before the track ends so I have time to get to the bouncer. That's possible with the rocket (it won't drop you on a slide or drop you in front of an obstacle). Also, I have nearly one million bananas and can't use them to do anything except use them for the launcher. I wish there were other things I could buy with the bananas. Other that, I think those are my complaints. I hope they are fixed at sometime!
