Despicable Me: Minion Rush

Despicable Me: Minion Rush picked up a 4 out of 5 star score in our review last week, and we also brought you some handy hints and tips for getting started with the game. In today's guide, you can find out all about the power-ups in Minion Rush, and which ones are worth investing in.

Premium Items

Item: Golden Banana
Effect: Make any Banana you collect worth double forever.
Cost: $4.99
This is at the high end of the in-app purchase store pricing, but if you're in it for the long run, picking this up will help you unlock all of those Banana-based power-ups much quickly.

Item: Golden Shield
Effect: Upgrade the Shield to be invincible when it's on!
Cost: 1,200 Tokens
We have a hard time justifying this particular purchase, as it's going to cost you an eye-watering $9.99 to buy the necessary tokens. The shield doesn't come along as often as we'd like to justify spending money here.

Banana Currency Items

Item: Freeze Ray
Effect: Freeze and smash obstacles apart
Unlock Cost: 150 Bananas
Unlocking this item will allow you to deal with upcoming obstacles, and is particularly useful for the more frantic stages of the game. Make sure you know what you're doing before frittering (no pun intended) your Bananas away on this.

Item: Banana Vacuum
Effect: Let the Bananas come to you! The Banana vacuum attracts Bananas for 10 seconds
Unlock Cost: 150 Bananas
A pretty useful item, the Banana Vacuum will allow you to gather up lots of Bananas without having to worry about getting in the right lane. Note that this effect expires after a pretty short amount of time.

Item: Banana Splitter
Effect: While active, each Banana counts as two! The Banana Splitter doubles your Bananas for 10 seconds.
Unlock Cost: 150 Bananas
Self-explanatory. If you have this power-up active, every Banana you collect will count for two in your tally. A good alternative to investing in the premium Golden Banana.
