For this month’s Get This Game pick, your favorite yellow sidekicks are as goofy and beguiling as ever in Despicable Me: Minion Rush by Gameloft for Android.

In the game you use super sneaky minion tricks and strategies to defeat challenging villains. Each victory gets you that much closer to earn the esteemed title of Minion of the Year, earned by impressing your former super-villain boss, Gru. Minions will also run through iconic Despicable Me movie scenes. Using left and right swiping on your screen, your minion will dodge, duck and jump over obstacles to collect an endless currency of bananas (a minion delicacy), and a rare assortment of tokens along the way that give you power-ups for improving your distance and unlocking new costumes to dress up your adorably dorky minion.
