Fruit Ninja is a family-friendly mobile app by Halfbrick that provides great entertainment. Various fruits, from bananas and apples to watermelon and oranges, fly up onto the screen, and ...the player must use their finger to slice the fruit before it falls back to the bottom of the screen. If a piece of fruit is missed, a strike is issued, and there are three strikes until that round is over. The frequency of fruit increases as the game goes on. The real challenge comes when bombs fly up amidst the fruit, and the player has to swipe the fruit while avoiding the bombs. If a bomb is hit, the round is immediately over.
The game is fairly simple, but achievements are tracked and can unlock new features, providing different backgrounds and blades to enhance your game. With the fruit slashing comes the great sound effects that amplify the slashing and splashing of fruit and the fizzing bomb. For double the fun, play in multi-player mode to see how you stack up against friends and family. Fruit Ninja also offers a Zen mode, where the bombs are nonexistent, but the player must slice as many fruits as possible in a certain time period. A newer mode, Arcade, has been made available, adding a new dynamic to the game with unique fruits that offer new abilities as you slice them. Read moreless
