Perfection, with a lot of unreasonable, unfair reviews.
, October 13, 2011
This review is from: Fruit Ninja Free (App)
Hey, you soccer moms. Your ramblings about the dangers of advertising do not qualify as a review. Don't expose your child to internet ads period if you're afraid of ads about zombies and pornography, (I've never experienced the latter, although I have seen a somewhat sexual dating site ad) and if you really want them to play this game sans adverts, you can pay for the paid one. It's about the price of a cheeseburger or a game of Time Crisis at the arcades. As for me, I'm old enough to handle zombies and scantily-clad women. As a matter of fact, I've grown an appreciation of those things. Also, one guy with a legitimate concern that this app is taking his contacts for nefarious, dastardly purposes, I've never seen any ill effects like you describe. You may have an issue with something else or maybe you're just unfortunate.
Any-friggin'-way, this game is gloriously well-made and deceivingly simple. On the outside, it looks way too simplistic, but the beast in question has layers, like parfait. And also, like a parfait, this game's got a lot of fruit. In fact, this game's all about fruit, bombs, and swords. I beleive several dozen people will agree that those are some of the finest things in life.
The object of the game is to cut as much fruit as you can. Whether it's a time limit or going until you miss too many fruits/hit a bomb, you cut up a juicy, fruity shake. It's kinda like working at Jamba Juice, exept it's far more pleasent. And the fruit-cutting, acheived by swiping your finger across your screen (if your using one of those Android laptops, I guess it'd be click-and-drag), works extremely well. On all three Android devices I've played this game on (a Pandigital Star, my Optimus V, and my mom's Samsung Droid Charge), the game works admirably well, which is awesome. Slight lag on the Pandigital Star. (it's only got 256 RAM, though)
It uses 3D graphics (they're not like Modern Combat, NOVA, Assassin's Creed or Splinter Cell or anything like that) which give the game a good fluidity, and it also has a good cartoon-ish look about it, which it very charming and doesn't require a ridiculous amount of processing power due to lack of detailed textures. In short, it looks good. Damn good. And it's a pretty efficient worker. Like a chick who maintains minefields for a living.
And, well, that's about it. got OpenFeint for leaderboards and unlockable swords and gubbins like that, which is nice. The core gameplay is solid, works well, is extremely fun and doesn't take up nearly as much time as an Angry Birds addiction or something similar.
