Here, the Minions are on a cruise when Phil accidentally sinks the ship and they get stuck on an island where they the idea to open a resort. This is the set up where you play the resort / base / city / town building game, and it’s actually a pretty cool one.

The longer you play the game, the more Minions appear to help work on the buildings. The minions by the way, have some unique features that help you distinguish one from the other, nice.
Because Minions make up your workforce, you will be able to complete several structures simultaneously. You have to wait for the Minions to finish, but having them work on several projects at the same time helps, and you use the same approach when it comes to gathering resources.
All the stuff you collect here is for a reason and these can be combined, and the more you build, the more experience you gain. You also get the chance to assign special tasks and explore new areas on the island. If you’re a fan of the Minions, you’re going to love this game. Apart from the gameplay, the sounds and visuals are faithful to the characters, so it feels like a genuine part of the franchise.
