In the game, players must help Gru’s Minions as they embark on secret agents missions across various locations from the movies. From El Macho’s Lair to Anti-Villain League HQ, the goal is to keep the Minions out of danger and get them to the end of the map without tripping over too many obstacles. Once players become pros, they can compete against players around the world in the Top Bananas Room for the chance to win in-game prizes.
