MINIONS PARADISE

The Minions; you either love them or hate them, they are both adorable and horrible at the same are just time. They are just adorahorrible… But let's take a look at the actual game. After several years of working hard for the greatest villain on the world (yeah, right), they are now on a much deserved cruise. However, it wouldn’t be the minions if something didn’t go terribly wrong. And guess what, they crash into an iceberg, in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. All thanks to Phil (again), but thank god for a nearby islands where they can go ashore. And they wouldn’t be the minions if they didn’t turn it into a party island. And the one who has to manage the entire island is, of course, Phil. This way, he can make up for the accident.


So that is where the game starts; with the main character Phil. He will give you tasks to complete in order to turn the island into the biggest and best Party Island in the entire Pacific Ocean. Besides Phil, there are several other minions already on the island. Over time, more and more minions will travel to your island and you will receive additional tasks from them as well. A few well-known characters make an appearance in this game. For instance: Bob, KING BOB, who arrives together with teddy, even Bee-Do visits your party hot-spot. Your main objective is to have as many parties as possible. However, you'll need all kinds of attributes to keep the parties fun. To throw a party, you'll have to earn party points. This can be done in many different ways; from hitting a pińata or playing volleyball, to chilling in a hammock.

Apart from these party points, you will also need drinks, food and all kinds of other party items. And of course, you'll have to make all of them yourself (or, at least have your minions make them). For example, if you want ice-cream, you'll need ice, coconuts and bamboo. Lucky for us, all of these items can be found on the island! Well, I say 'can be found', but that's stretching the truth a bit. In order to get these items you will first have to plant a coconut tree and some bamboo plants, and create an iceberg. This is done by going to your menu (in the top right corner of the screen), selecting the needed item and just dragging it to the desired location on your screen. Once that is done you can order minions to get the items you need. They are all willing to help and will get the job done! You can even see them do it and laugh your ass off because of all the fun they have while performing their tasks. Trust me, just watch and see.


The main objective of the game is to manage an ever-growing amount of minions, making sure you don't run out of supplies and complete the missions, given to you by the various minions. These missions are mostly simple, single-objective based tasks, like build a new building or something like that. These building are necessary for your party item production, so yes, they are pretty important. Over time, your island will expand; by completing missions you can even build bridges to other islands. In doing so, you'll create more room for your relaxing activities, production buildings and stuff like that.

During each party you will receive a speed bonus; for several minutes, the items get produces more quickly (in half the time). Sometimes during these parties, you will even go up a level. With every next level you reach, you unlock new relaxing activities, buildings or other useful stuff. However, you'll need money to build these things. This money can be earned by completing minion mission, selling stuff at the notice board, or selling stuff to the captain of the ship Phil sank.


Minions Paradise is a fun game that is easy to play; sometimes you will be rushing from level to level, while at other times, it will take a bit longer to complete your missions. No matter what, you'll never get bored because the minions will always be able to make you smile. Just watching them and tapping on them is fun enough as it is. You can also play mini games which you unlock over time. So, however you look at it, Minions Paradise is a fun game, filled with cute and annoying little yellow... monsters? Whatever you decide to call them, it is a very funny and cool game to play on your mobile or tablet!
