Despicable Me Cheats

Despicable Me  Cheats

1. Rack Up on Those Bananas and Golden Bananas

As your minion runs to and fro, there will be plenty of bananas to see and pick up. All of the game’s many upgrades are tied to the collecting of bananas. Try and focus on picking up as many bananas as you can, plus you should hit up the levels you’ve already beaten so you can stock up on more. If you’re willing to spend a few bucks on Golden Bananas, you’ll get double points for every banana you pick up. Get your score multiplier a bit higher with that aforementioned item.

2. Keep Your Eyes Ahead of Your Minion 

It’s pretty common sense, but it must be said anyway – keep your eyes ahead of your super fast minion. Your eyes should be glued to the road ahead so you can have an easier time collecting all those items on the board. It pays to pay attention to the many obstacles and collectibles you’ll see ahead of your minion.

3. Know When to Tilt and Dodge in Mid-Air

As you eye those upcoming obstacles that pop up in your path, it’s best to take flight and switch lanes while your minion is airborne. Prepare for all those upcoming obstacles by jumping and switching lanes over and over. Simple.

4. Squash Other Minions, Get That Multiplier and Cop Extra Bananas

It pays to run and squash the other minions who are also running alongside you. If you’re looking to get your score multiplier higher (and are willing to ditch those big banana bunches), then squash all those darn minions. That score multiplier will make your banana collecting a lot more…well, “fruitful.” HA!

5. Try and Stay on the Boss Battle Stages a Bit Longer to Collect More Bananas 

GameWise.co knows that it’s way more helpful for players to tough it out on those boss levels (and unicorn stages): Rack up your score even more by dragging out the boss battles and the fluffy unicorn stages as well. In the unicorn stage, you’ll fall when you’re not touching bananas, so collect the bananas off and on to make it last longer. If Vector and Meena aren’t throwing too many robots at you, avoid them but don’t tap the target bots, so that you can continue racking up your score while you run, without worrying about any jumps or anything like that.

6. Here’s How to Take Out Vector

MMOSite.com posted up a few details on how to go about putting down one of the few bosses in the game, Vector: When fighting against Vector, you have to avoid the large units that he drops onto the lanes, but fire the shielded units back at him. All you have to do to take him down is tap on these explosive objects to send them hurtling towards his ship. Make sure you’re out of harm’s way before tapping though.

7. Pick Up the Unicorn to Try Another Minigame

MMOSite.com also spoke about the importance of picking up the Fluffy Unicorn Icon: Always prioritize grabbing the Fluffy Unicorn icon when it appears on the screen. You’ll need to unlock it from the store first, but once active this mini-game gives you the chance to earn some serious bananas. Use your tilt controls to steer the unicorn through the massive columns of currency.

8. Make Your Way to the Secret Disco Room

When you’re running through Guru’s lab, keep your eyes peeled for some bananas that veer off the track next to a pipe off to the right. Push your minion towards that area if you’re looking to pick up an nice lil’ bonus game – The Disco Room.

Despicable Me Tips and Cheats

Game play tips and tricks

Stock up on bananas

The most obvious tip I can give you that will cost you nothing is to collect as many bananas as you can. Most character upgrades and level ups can be purchased in game with just the bananas you collect. Sometimes I’ll run through levels just to collect bananas and stock up.

If you aren’t opposed to spending some money, the Golden Banana purchase will give you double points for each banana you collect forever. You’ll rack up your tally super quick and be able to get upgrades twice as fast.

Facebook options

Connecting to Facebook not only allows you the ability to send your entertaining friends taunts and challenges but also gives you extra Gru tokens the first time you connect it, 50 to be exact. If you have a Facebook account, make sure you link it up.

If you don’t have Facebook, you’ll most likely spend a little more time collecting tokens in order to skip levels that require Facebook. You can either buy tokens or collect them during runs and by completing certain objectives. Once you’ve got a good stash of tokens, you can simply skip the tasks that require Facebook by paying a certain amount of tokens.


Don’t forget to collect your rewards

As you complete tasks, Gru tokens will become available to you for doing so. Make sure you don’t forget to claim them. Minion Rush is sneaky about not really explaining this.

In order to claim tokens for the achievements you’ve completed, tap on the Goals menu from the main screen. Along the top you’ll need to toggle from the goals tab to the achievements tab. Scroll through the list and see if any are completed. If they are you’ll see a claim button next to it.


As you get further into runs, you’ll notice bonus items that you can use to help you along. Powering these up can be done from the main menu. You’ll have to cash in your bananas though so choose which ones you want to cash in carefully.

For example, I have a tendency to level up things that bring me lots more bananas or despicable acts such as the unicorn and banana splitter.

Different costumes

The costumes menu allows you to buy different costumes for your minion. This feature isn’t just for fun though. Each costume has its own special powers or features. For example, some will increase your banana count automatically by a certain percentage when you complete a run wearing that costume. Other costumes make power ups last longer.

Stock up on whatever costumes you can afford with your tokens as you receive them.

Free tokens

Minion Rush gives you the ability to earn free Gru tokens whenever you’d like by watching short video ads. Each video you watch will give you 1 free token. The videos are anywhere from 15 to 20 seconds each so it isn’t impossible to rack up a decent amount of tokens in a short period of time.


If you don’t want to spend real money and you have some patience, it’s not a bad option. I’ve also used this when I’m only a few tokens away from buying a power up that I want since it’s quicker than finding tokens within runs or working towards an achievement to unlock it.

You can access the free tokens section of Minion Rush through the Costumes menu. You’ll see the button along the bottom labeled Free.

The Disco Room

While in Gru’s lab, watch for an area where you see bananas off the track and on a pipe off to the right. You can steer towards that for an awesome bonus portion of the game in the Disco Room.
