Minions Paradise Review (Allview P8 Energy): Fun and Colourful, Sporting Nice Graphics but in the End Dull (Video)

  • Electronic Arts jumps on the Minion bandwagon, through a game called Minions Paradise, that we played on a handset called Allview P8 Energy. This game is available for free in the Play Store and it’s your typical base builder and resource collector.

    This time there’s no exact feeling of purpose here, but we do get some good graphics. I would even say that the graphics are too good for this type of game, with the renders and animations being very complex in Minions Paradise. There’s even a story in the mix: a minion has managed to cause a shipwreck, with all the minions being angry at him for that and now he has to make up for that by colonizing an island.

    This means we’ll build all sorts of structures, including a swamp, a bamboo cutting area and a coconut grove. There’s even a bunch of minigames, like one based on a waterslide and one that involves jumping over rocks while being pulled by a crocodile in the water. Minions must be entertained and in order to do that you have to offer them items and resources like coconuts, bamboo, shells, skateboards, grenades and more.

    The core of the game is triggering a party once you gather enough points and everyone on the island will be happy. Resources require minions to farm them and farming, as well as building and upgrades have timers with many minutes associated. That may annoy or alienate many gamers, forced to pay their way out of timers. In the end we’re left with cute minions, nice animations and an overall nice passtime, but without the feeling of purpose.

    We give this game an 8 out of 10 and you can get it here.
