Norcon is proud to announce the release of Minion Runner 1.2, its new iOS game. Minion Runner is a endless runner cum shooter game and it has support for playing with friends. Players take control of a greenish yellow minion that looks a bit like the characters from "Despicable Me." Players control the minion and get him to run, jump and even fly through each course of the game. Players can collect coins as they make their way through the game. These coins may then be spent on various power ups. The game also has a micro-transaction system which allows players to buy more coins if they want the power ups but don't currently have enough coins.

The "endless runner" style means that you can play for as long as you want in order to continually challenge your friends. The style also means that you'll be constantly running forward no matter what. Tapping the screen makes the minion jump, and holding the screen for longer makes the minion jump higher. Pushing the green "S" button in the bottom right corner of the screen makes the minion shoot. This is the sum total of the controls in the game, so it's easy to learn but hard to master.

In the top left corner of the game screen you have a list of your shells, as well as how long you've been going for. The point of the game is to jump, shoot and stay clear of obstacles and enemies. You can collect gems and just straight up power ups as you go along as well. You have three lives for each round, and if you run into an enemy such as an insect you lose a life. If you lose all of your lives the "endless runner" game ends. Often people mostly just try to get further than their last furthest point. Examples of powerups you can get include magnets that help pull coins closer to you, or a jetpack that lets you fly. You can also use bumpers to jump higher or even a magic hat for getting through obstacles. Various laser guns are available for shooting down your enemies as well. Each one costs you about 250 coins, or you can purchase the powerups through micro-transactions in the Minion store.

* Many Unique and individual enemies to shoot down with your complement of laser guns
