Let’s go on an adventure. You’re going through a dense forest with such long trees that no ray of sunshine can cut through them. A wild cat is chasing you and you have nothing but a blunt knife that might not be able to even give it a scratch. The dawn is coming and you have no shelter. The last thing that you can expect is that the cat is hungry and looking to hunt you down. Suddenly, a sparkle catches your eyes and you don’t know whether it’s the cat or a reflection from a river flowing nearby. You are thirsty and you have to go for it. But you can’t risk your life as well. So what do you think your next step will be?

Tensed and tired of these suspense stories? Well, me too and all I want is a light hearted adventure with a cute hero. But where will I find one? I guess I have found the answer!

It’s none other than the new iOS app called Minion Runner that has been developed by Norcron. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 6.1 or any later version of the OS. This app has also been optimized for iPhone 5.


If you remember the movie Despicable Me, then it’s the same minion that was one of the small robot characters and you can find many more similar games in the App Store. But let’s just focus on this one. The gameplay is very simple as the minion is on a never-ending journey and like every adventure, there are enemies which he’ll have to shoot down and there are coins to collect. These coins are very important from the player’s point of view as they are required for the upgrades and power ups and given that the game becomes more and more challenging as you proceed, you need them desperately. However, you can buy these upgrades via in-app purchases as well.

With decent graphics, you’ll thoroughly enjoy this game. I really liked the colour combinations as they are not too bright and keep the overall look very light on your mind keeping up with the theme of the game. The controls are also simple but you have to coordinate between jumping and shooting the monsters. But as I said that this is a never ending journey, so they’ll keep coming and the more you’re able to cope up with them, the more you score.

So when you’re working so hard to get the high scores, why won’t you share them with your friends and other players via Nextpeer or Game Center!

Overall, if you’re looking for something simple and entertaining, this is the game for you. You can play for hours and enjoy the game. Moreover, it’s available for free in the App Store. So just go on and check out this app in the App Store now!
