4.0 out of 5 stars Slightly tricky Right Side scroller, December 12, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Fruit Devil Full (App)
The game is basically trying to keep your little character flying by flicking your finger. He needs to eat fruits and avoid the pointed objects that look like large fruits as well as hornets and other critters. (There are no directions that state this, but I found out by dying.)

Actually the only directions are found in a splash page of three panels showing you to eat fruits. You score points by eating fruits and collecting coins. You can only move forward (to the right), so if you miss something, there is no way to go back and get it. As you eat, you get to move faster. There are also bouncing platforms to help you advance.

It is a cute game overall that has no in app purchases! However, there is a Bonus Shop that sells power ups using coins you earn in the game. There is a button to get "free coins" but it does not do anything. I believe it is meant to go to a web site, but the dev blocked it in this version. It is a bit disconcerting to even see that, though, since it makes me wonder if a future update will activate it. As it stands now, it does nothing. Also, there is a button to "Submit" your score at the end, however, it also did not do anything when I pressed it, so I'm not sure if this will work in a future update or if I simply did not earn a high enough score to activate it.

I like the achievements section that offers trophies you can earn through various accomplishments. They do not appear to be linked to any internet sites.

As long as this truly remains a no in-app purchase game, it is a fun little diversion that kids would enjoy. It will end quickly for many, though, since even the first level has many dangers. If your child is easily frustrated, this might be one to avoid, even though it is free today. Otherwise, it is a cute app worth trying out.

Positives:
Cute design
No in app purchases
Overall game design is fun
No problems with the app responding to my movements

Negatives:
Poor directions
Difficulty level is high even in the beginning of the game
Possible buttons that will be in app purchase options in the future
