These cruel critters are servants of the dark forces, dedicated to promoting the spread of evil and who assist players in their trademark, charmingly chaotic style. With the last Overlord gone, the minions, under the command of their wise old master, Gnarl, perform an ancient nefarious ritual to create four Netherghūls – champions of darkness, created from the dead remains of suitable evildoers. With these nefarious ne'er do wells the minions hope to push back the plague of goodness (known as The Golden) that’s overrun the lands, kick start the return of evil, and ultimately, bring back the Overlord! Which of the four Netherghūls, Gnarl ponders, is up to the task?
- Summon Your Minions:Collect Minion Energy Cubes to build up your supply of minions, summon them with simple button presses and let their deliciously destructive chaos loose on the world!
- Build Your Mighty Minion Champions:Over the course of the game, players can upgrade their minions to make them increasingly more powerful and destructive.
- Customise Your Minion Army:Unlock wearable items for your minion troops. Who doesn’t want to see their minions charging into battle sporting a chef’s toque or a dandy cavalier’s hat? Exactly!
Browns are your tanks, heavy duty meat-shields that love nothing more than a good old dust-up with the pesky forces of Shining Justice.
Specialisation: Browns will get enemies off your back fast with their trusted taunting ability. Summon them, and then watch with delight as they plough headfirst into the nearest fool!
Your Reds are fiery fiends who act as the perfect explosive antidote to the sickly-sweet niceness of do-gooders everywhere.
Specialisation: Suicide bombing runs are the Reds’ area of expertise. Raise these lethal bombers and fire them off toward a crowd of enemies. Kaboom!
Blues are your healers, releasing nourishing energy that fills up your health meter, devilish little nursemaids offering a helping hand during a hard day’s evil-doings.
Specialisation: Blues are weak in a fight, but their healing abilities make them powerful allies. Initially they’ll lack the courage to follow you in battle, but once powered up, they’ll trail behind you like impish medicine men, patching you up while you get on with the important business of eviling.
Your Greens are stealthy little fellows who like to sneak around the back like tiny evil ninjas and stab your foes before they know what’s hit them.
Specialisation: Quick, back stabbing damage dealing is the Greens' particular talent. Call them up and they’ll scurry behind your enemies and get stuck in while you busy yourself with punching them in the face.
The wise old minion master returns to guide and mentor the player through the game. A key character in the story, Gnarl kicks off events by raising the four evil Netherghūl warriors to help the minions bring evil back into the world.
Ricket is a female Minion and the main blacksmith of the Minions. She’s youngish (about early twenties in Minion terms) and less craggy than the male Minions. She has hair (unlike male Minions), steam-punk-y goggles, a leather smith’s apron and a large hammer. She’s fairly cheerful and friendly, but doesn’t take any nonsense from the other Minions (hence the hammer.)
