Despicable Me: Minion Rush Jelly update includes new challenges


On Level58 currently. I was a little overwhelmed by it..but once you get the right powerups and the right costumes...without using real money..its not that hard to pass the levels.

Just started a tumblr about it with basic tips. Have a lot more coming on Costumes - which one should be used for which level, events, insider tips on the different locations, where to spend your bananas for best utilization, etc.

Stay with me and it'll be fun...underwear (Thats 'I swear' in Minion Language). Follow me on:

A money-grubbing "update" which only has one goal: to make it compulsory to use the revive powerup (hence real money) to complete the missions and keep playing. There is no other point than going forward from one mission to the next now and past level 40-50, there is no way to complete the levels without using revive.
And most often even when you complete the missions, the game becomes impossible to play right after you hit that 3rd fruit and before collecting any reward. As if letting people win one or two tokens per mission was unimaginable. But then when you make money off tokens, I guess it is.
I have been stuck at level 140 for three days with no hope of getting further. I guess I'm done and I'm going back to games for which you actually know what you'll be paying.

Yes! I had just posted my own concerns - but then saw yours and realized that having the game become impossible right after the third fruit is another big frustration. It is only one token at a time - but would still help.

I don't understand how to connect to facebook to get the token a day. Every time I try to log in - it comes back with you have already authorized minion rush. Can anyone help? AND I completely dislike the task where you have to throw things such as at Meena or the ventriloquist. I will NEVER be able to get the number needed (20) to complete three fruits.

I had only just started to play Minion Rush when the Jelly Lab update came through so I still feel a bit lost on how to get puzzle pieces etc. however have been mightily cheesed when after making the three fruits, I miss the token or prize as it is in a very difficult to get to spot or hidden until you are too close to be able to do anything to get to it. Try as I might, even if I surpass that run, I can never get the tokens again. Anyone have any tips for a newbie?
