What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Despicable Me: Minion Mania is a puzzle-based adventure game featuring the cute, minion characters from the new animated film, Despicable Me. The plot of the movie and its other characters are incidental here -- this game is all about the minions. In order to help them find the pieces to their supervillain master's new mega-device, you'll need to help the minions navigate obstacle- and trap-filled rooms. Some of the traps will lead to the minions getting hurt, but only in cartoony ways.
Is it any good?
DESPICABLE ME: MINION MANIA is a top-notch mobile game and would be a fun and challenging puzzle adventure even if it had nothing to do with the 3-D animated movie. The minions make cute and endearing little protagonists, and the maze-like puzzle levels offer loads of brain-teasing enjoyment as users try to figure out how to best traverse them. Winning costume pieces to dress up and customize the minions adds a bit of bonus fun.
