There are some games that are just a shoe in for release when a big franchise takes off. Despicable Me is one such franchise, and with the new animated film after earning close to a billion dollars at the box office, it has also landed on the Windows Store.

Gameloft has launched another one of its popular games on Windows 8.1, and this time users of Microsoft’s modern operating platform can try their hands at Despicable Me: Minion Rush.

Essentially a Temple Run type endless runner, this game gives you control of a Minion and attempt a run for as long as you can. Obviously there are plenty of obstacles, secret weapons and power ups along the way, and not to mention evil villains that you have to defeat.

The official description reads:

“Play as a Minion and compete with others in hilarious, fast-paced challenges in order to impress your boss, (former?) super-villain Gru! Jump, fly, dodge obstacles, collect bananas, be mischievous, and defeat villains to earn the title of Minion of the Year!”

This free game may just have landed on the Windows Store, but it is quickly charting some good success and great ratings. It comes with pretty much the same feature set on all other platforms, including multiple locations, customization options for costumes and weapons and a variety of game modes.

It works perfectly fine on all processors that can run Windows 8.1, from x86 and x64 to ARM based ones, and the touch optimized controls make playing on a tablet a breeze.
