  • I'm about to uninstall the game now that I keep getting reminded that 'My Minion is waiting to rush' every f'n day.  (And yes, I turned off Toast notifications in the game...still happening!)
  • Turned off notifications and its still reminding it to you? That's strange!...
  • I turned off the 'Toast' notifications within the game itself, which I thought was all I'd have to do...checking in the background task to block at the OS level...hopefully that works.
  • Try to turn off his background task, that action remove this annoying notification here.
  • Loved the game, banned me stating I used illegitimate ways to increase coins which I don't remember doing, never played the game after that.
  • It's happened to quite a few people, it's probably because you were one of the few who downloaded that glitched update, which allowed to increase the bananas and tokens
  • Go to phone sittings, notifications+actions and tern off it notifications
  • Huh, ok, I'll do that...but shouldn't turning off notifications in the game be enough?  Thanks!
  • You're welcome :)
  • Did you turn off notifications in the phone settings?
  • Checking...thx!
  • Gameloft has been doing a great job with Despicable Me: Minion Rush. Lets hope they show some love for their existing XBOX title games. :|
  • I hope so too
  • High hopes
  • Its smooth than earlier and free of glitches loving to play it
  • Wow... Nice to have new area to play.
  • Wow! You guys were fast at covering this update! Will done! You missed something though. The size from 100 plus Mb it was dropped to 71mb, something that prompted me to download it asap. Never mind though :)
  • I enjoy this game a lot, but if you don't purchase upgrades, this game becomes very difficult...
  • Finally)
  • Samsung Galaxy S4... :P
  • Does look like one actually, but it's because these ATIV phones are also by Samsung.
  • The last update made it too hard. I'll turn a corner and before i have time to respond i run into something. Plus it kind of lags during some corner changes making it even harder to see what's about to happen. Hopefully some of that is fixed.
  • I saw this yesterday, hope we get this update early 2015
  • I cant add my friends who use android or ios
  • If only every developer were this dedicated...
  • I have to hand it to the devs and other people behind Minion Rush, thanks for the continuous WP support, and the improvements and updates that come along with that. My son still loves this game, thsi never gets old.
  • Not downloading in my Nokia Lumia cyan 720... Does this game require update 1...?
  • nope, os or firmware has nothing to do with this
  • I still have bapples!!! Did they bring back bapples? If not imma stay put lol. Unless this update is legit?
  • I replaced my phone with new one and all my "Despicable Me: Minion Rush" progress gone away. I have to start from beginning...
  • Six months ago there was an update for the game developers I can make the game illegally, now I can no longer play and gameloft with bans wp central plzz help me
