I never thought I’d see this happen, but it appears that Gameloft has just taken the crown from King.com's Candy Crush Saga in the iTunes Free Apps section with its latest IP, Despicable Me: Minion Rush.
Featuring stunning graphics and gameplay to match, Despicable Me: Minion Rush has players running through iconic locations full of surprises, secrets, and tricky obstacles. Examples include Gru’s Lab, Gru’s Residential Area, and El Macho’s Lair.
You play as a Minion and compete with others in a hilarious, fast-paced running game chock-full of challenges, all of which you need to overcome to impress your boss, super-villain Gru.
All you need to play this one is iOS 5 and any iDevice that can handle the firmware. Grab it at the link below and enjoy! Just keep in mind that Despicable Me is one of those games filled with in-app purchases, so be careful with it around the youngsters.
