Despicable Me’s Minions now have their own game! It’s not a brilliant game (or an official movie tie-in), but it’s fun for a few minutes. It’s a Galaga-styled arcade game where you have to chuck bananas at enemy Minions to progress; the controls are a bit fiddly but hey, it’s free!

Deon du Plessis

Deon du Plessis

Deon got his first taste of PC gaming at the tender age of 11 when his father bought an 8088 XT, ostensibly to "help him with his homework". Instead, it introduced him to Leisure Suit Larry, King Graham, Sonny Bonds and many more, and Deon has been a PC gamer and hardware enthusiast ever since. He landed his first professional writing gig in 2006 at a prestigious local PC magazine, a very happy happenstance as he got to write for a living about things he loves - tech, PCs, gaming, and everything in between. He's been writing about it all ever since, and loves every minute of it.
