Love ‘em or hate ‘em, Minions are utterly ubiquitous this year. And if you love the little yellow bumbling idiots, then you’ll probably get a kick out of EA’s Minions Paradise. It’s a familiar premise: build up an island with all sorts of structures and fun distractions, which involve timers, coins, and a lot of busywork. But it’s also silly, amusing, and has dance party breaks, which we could all use from time to time.
Right now, the island is covered in holiday décor: Phil’s beachside bar has candy canes, a Santa hat, and a wreath, and is bookended by candy cane-striped, one-eyed wacky wobblers. Elsewhere, you’ll find gingerbread Minion decorations, gifts, a snowman cutout, and more. Minions Paradise is little more than a cute time-killer, but at least it matches the season now.
