This article is about some of the locations in Minions Paradise.
Minions are also like mini-games, and when the goal is achieved, the player will be awarded pieces of Totem Pole.
There are also some additional mini-game locations can be unlocked by Sand Dollars or Doubloons, and they are referred as Distractivities in the game menu. These mini-games can be played by Minions, and they can get party points after being played. They can also being put more than one times in different places on the island if more sand dollars or doubloons are spent.
- The main character, Phil, is slightly redesigned in the game; his appearance is different from all of the current Despicable Me films.
- A cruise of Villain-Con's logo can be seen at the farther sea away from the island, and it goes by occasionally, with some villains (such as Professor Flux and Frankie Fishlips) on the ship; after the tasks from the villain are done, the cruise would be gone.
- Before the release of The Secret Life of Pets, an icon with Max, which links to the game The Secret Life of Pets: Unleashed via the default app store, was put at the lower right corner of the screen. The icon has been there since, as both game are developed by EA.
- After announcing the retiring news of the game, the game is removed from App Store. Later, in the next day, the game's name in Google Play was replaced with ZZSUNSET Minions Paradise™, and only those who downloaded the game could see it. This is the standard process that Electronic Arts deals with the retiring game.
