Full Name Downtown
Available Yes
Secret area Bank of Evil

Downtown is a location in Minion Rush and is the sixth available location in the game. This location features the Bank of Evil as a secret area. It is available as of the 1.6.0 update. Downtown is the final location accessed in update 2.0.1.; it is accessed at level 180. 


After unlocking this area, Downtown will be available to access. It takes place, hence the name, in the Downtown area of the city Gru and his minions live in, and the location in the film appears in both Despicable Me and Despicable Me 2.

This location features majority of the obstacles in the Residential Area such as fire hydrants spouting water, construction signs blocking one lane (cannot be jumped over), buses that can be boarded (only if a ladder is in front) and cars/trucks nearing the player or blocking the road, however, the biggest difference between the two is that the player is forced to dodge a greater number of traffic vehicles in order to survive.

The Downtown lacks a boss so far. It's secret area is the Bank of Evil. Gru's large car can always be seen at the beginning of the Downtown (the feature has been removed in Jelly Lab update) and can occasionally be seen crossing the streets.



Before the Jelly Lab update, there's a featured soundtrack played as background music in the home page in Downtown.
