If you like running, then you’d surely like Minion Runner, the new iOS app that has been developed by Norcron. This fun game can help you kill hours of boredom. It’s compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 6.1 or any later version of the OS. The app has also been optimized for iPhone 5.


The best thing about Minion Runner is that it’s complete entertainment. The cute Minion character with spectacles on is one of the cute robots from the movie “Despicable Me”. I knew after watching that movie that these characters are going to be very popular very soon and here they are. With spectacles on and a mechanic cap on its head, it’s solely enough to make the game entertaining.

The gameplay is very simple and addictive. All you have to do is keep running and shooting the incoming monsters. Many different monsters will come your way and all you’ll have is a gun to kill them. This is a never ending game and therefore the longer you stay, the higher you score. On your way, you have to collect coins as well. Without these coins, you are running as a mere city marathon volunteer with no prize. But when you have these coins in your pocket, you have a lot of options for upgrades and shopping. You can visit shops for in-app purchases or you can buy power ups in exchange of the coins you’ve earned.


The graphics of this game are amazing. A city like background and a jungle like appearance on the front make a good combination. The overall look is very simple but has been so elegantly designed that you’ll fall in love with it. It takes you to the old Mario days but with some special ingredients of their own; they manage to keep a fresh taste. Of course, the main new ingredient is the Minion which is very cute and watching him walking with a machine gun in his hands and a bag on his back is absolute fun. It seems as if he’s on a mission.

Though the game is interesting and a lot of fun, there are currently lots of minion games in the market and more importantly many of them are based on the same concept of running minions. But the gameplay is very much different in this one and therefore if you have any doubts regarding the originality of this one, it’s completely unique and you won’t find anyone like that elsewhere.


The developers have done a descent job to keep the gameplay simple yet addictive and the cartoon themed graphics will work very well with young children. You can play against your friends using Nextpeer and find out who scores higher. The app is available for free in the App Store. So go and check it out now!

Pros: beautiful cartoon-themed graphics; simple but addictive gameplay; cute minion; upgrade your player; free.

Cons: none.

I will give this app 4 out of 5 stars.
