[App Review] Fruit Ninja

Aug 28, 2010 by

Fruit Ninja by Halfbrick Studios is a nice simple game with a lovely concept available on the Apple App Store for $0.99.

What was my first impression? “OMG SUPA AWESUM GAMEZ!!!” It looked a really fun game. The way everything was set up was very interactive making me want to see what’s in store. Although, some things are kind of MEAN, such as the bomb.

This game to me was REALLY fun and addicting. I’d sometimes find myself at 1 in the morning still playing this. Maybe it’s the want to get all the achievements or maybe I just like cutting fruit up. The game is a customizable as in you can change the background and the line that follows your sword. Customization to me is very important so of course, I would very much like this game. I also find the graphics beautiful, not realistic but stunning. The fruits look delicious and makes me want to go and eat a fruit. One downside would be that the kiwi is too dark and sometimes you miss it because you don’t see it.
Graphics: 5/5 – Stunning and beautiful.
UI: 4/5 – Wonderful. I have a horrible vocabulary.
Gameplay: 5/5 – Awesome! Play forever or for five minutes.
Creativity: 5/5 – Slicing fruits! Like others have thought of that!
Sound: 4/5 – Very Asian.
Controls: 5/5 – Controls are just really straight forward.
Difficulty: 3/5 – I honestly do not know what to say.
Longevity: 5/5 – Play for days!
Entertainment: 3/5 – FUUUUUUUUN!
Value: 5/5 – Worth it.
Total: 44/50 or 88% – Recommended.
