Ever since the first Despicable Me film was released, the little yellow guys known as Minions have become extremely popular. They’ve become so popular that they’re getting their own movie later this year. But the movie isn’t the only thing on the way. The Minions will also be making an appearance in a mobile game called Minions Paradise.

Minions Paradise is a building simulation, not that different from the many other building sims available for mobile devices. Poor Phil has ruined the Minions’ cruise vacation by accidentally sinking the cruise ship. Washed up on a deserted island, Phil builds up a fun place for the Minions to continue to have fun. Besides building, the Minions will be able to do activities including fishing and swimming.

Minions Paradise is free to play, meaning you can download the game for free, but there will be in-app purchases to help boost your progress in the game. The game will be available on both iOS and Android devices.
