Despicable Me Wiki

Back to the 80's was a Special Mission in Minion Rush from April 26th, 2017. It is the first part of the Bubble Gum Invasion Saga. The Saga is inspired by the Despicable Me 3 movie and was comprised of three episodes. All three episodes had something in common: lots of pink bubble gum surrounding the host areas!

In this update, the Special Items were Cassette Tapes, Sneakers and Cell Phones, including the main prize the Firefighter, with Perks, Prize Pods, Golden Tickets and Tokens.

The Mission area was Gru's Lab. As of this update, new props are no longer introduced. Instead, a new kind of prop called Fever Mode was introduced, one that would carry forward for many special events to come. Using the Fever Mode causes the minion to run faster and be invincible for a certain period of time, collecting Special Items that appear along the way. The lights dim out and the music changes pitch volume. Upgrades of Fever Mode are in the market and require Tokens.

Dave's new offered costume was the Stereo, available only in the market at the price of 6,500 market tickets.

In this update a new daily login style was inaugurated. The new style begins from day 1 and ends soon after the special mission ends, as opposed to the old style which carried forward endlessly. The old style had the disadvantage to reset to day 1 if the player failed to login for at least a day. The new style doesn't let the player lose progress if days are missed.
