Fruit Ninja is a dangerously addictive skill game in which the object is simply to slice up as much fruit as you can.
Essentially the only thing you need to do in Fruit Ninja is to swipe your finger across the screen to wield your sword. You must slice every piece of fruit that is thrown up from the bottom of the screen. If you miss a piece before it falls back off the screen, you lose a life. Likewise, if you touch one of the rogue bombs that come flying up, you lose a life too.
The look and feel of Fruit Ninja is excellent. From the realistic splat of pineapples being hacked, open to the fact that all menu icons must be selected by slicing them, the attention to detail in Fruit Ninja is something to behold. The serene background music fits very well with the theme, too.
Fruit Ninja is one of those games that feels super rewarding to play. The feeling of slicing fruit is so satisfying that it keeps you coming back for more and more in an effort to beat your high score.
There's plenty of life in Fruit Ninja thanks to the inclusion of three different game modes, OpenFeint support, and a Dojo, where you can upgrade to unlockable blades and backgrounds.
This is the free version of Fruit Ninja, although it comes with advertising. If you don't want to suffer these ads, then go buy the full version of Fruit Ninja.
If you're looking for a fun game of skill to kill some time, Fruit Ninja is an excellent choice.
