Despicable Me: Minion Rush lands at the Windows Phone Store, finally
As you might have already guessed, the game is based on the animated movies from the Despicable Me franchise, distributed by Universal Pictures. Just like the movie, the game is 3D as well, and it features vivid, punchy graphics, custom animations and special voiceover effects. In order to enhance the game experience, the camera is not static, but dynamically changes its angle in order to provide a cinematic feel for the gamers.
Apart from the vivid graphics and 3D effects, the arcade gameplay of Minion Rush revolves around the yellowy minions' quest to collect more and more bananas and power ups, while occasionally battling several of the movie villains. You'll have to navigate your constantly running minion through various levels, each featuring different setting, obstacles and random bonuses. It looks like each level will be full of hidden content and it will be up to you to reveal all of it. Speaking of levels, most of them will be quite familiar to you if you have watched any of the two Despicable Me movies. You'd also be able to challenge your friends to beat your high score.
Minion Rush has been available for Android and iOS for quite some time now, and it was high time Gameloft brought Minion Rush to WP users as well. The game has the potential to become one of the most popular titles for the platform and might eat up a lot of your spare time. Although it features some in-app purchases, it's free to download and play, so if you have a Windows Phone 8 device, don't wait any longer, visit the link below and engage yourself in some Minion Rush!

Haha by your recent comments one would say your favorite phone is the Lumia 1520 :) yet you have a Note 3. Why is that?

1520 is an amazing phone. One been waiting for something like it for awhile.

I'm actually planning on getting an iPhone 5S (32GB Champaign) or a Lumia device come spring to try something different. All I need is for T-Mobile to release the a 929 variant and I'm pulling the trigger. As for the 5S, it's been two years since I've personally owned an iOS device. I'll still keep my Note 3 of course, but swap between whatever I choose and my Note.
Depending on how my check tomorrow looks, I might pick up an iPad Air for myself. :')

Nice to see people like you who dare to try everything and do not live in a bubble with a company's name on it.
I myself want to buy a phablet but is afraid that it will feel too big. Was it easy to adapt from S3 to Note 3?

When I first got it, the Note 3 felt huge and thought I would never get used to it. Two days later, I found anything smaller than the Note 3 completely small and unusable. It literally is the perfect size for everything, especially watching videos. I have anOtterBox on it, and it still fits in my pocket with no problem. Charging the phone from 1 to 100% takes about 80 minutes, which is faster than any phone I've ever seen.
Pull the trigger and get this phone. I have absolutely no complaints about anything at all. It's literally perfect in my opinion.

Already available. You know that you can also run every Android app now (exept some Google Apps).

All other games on my phone run great, but this one is laggy. looks like ~25 fps :/

The App gap is decreasing with a pace. Good to see this. Carry on WP.

This game was the main reason I was going to switch to a Nexus 5... I know that is very lame, but most people underestimate how much I love Despicable Me. So now I am happy... However, as it has already been pointed out (+1 PapaSmurf), would love to run this on a 5+" screen!
Waiting for a new T-Mobile, Windows Phone.
