Great puzzle adventure -- with or without its movie tie-in.

A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

The challenges get increasingly more difficult as you go along, but the increase is a gradual one.

Violence & Scariness

The adorable minion creatures can get burned, shocked, frozen, or otherwise zapped by high-tech obstacles. It's all very cartoony.

Sexy Stuff

The app is a tie-in to the new movie, Despicable Me, though there's no hard sell for the film here, and you don't need to have seen the film in order to play.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

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.
