Fruit Ninja is a unique app, allowing you to chop fruit in half. The app would be pretty boring if all you did was chop fruit repetitively, the app keeps you playing using its different game modes which involve classic, Zen mode and multiplayer which I will go into detail after. The app also you interested in the game by being able to unlock new blades and backgrounds to use in game but also there is a host of achievements which can be completed. The app is also regularly updated with new game modes, achievements, blades and backgrounds. Every time you finish a game it gives you an interesting fact about fruit. The design and layout of the app is funky and fun, I particularly like the fact that you have to slice the menu buttons themselves. Classic mode involves slicing as many fruit without dropping more than three fruits or hitting a bomb which gives you an instant game over, you can receive bonuses in the game by either getting a combo of 3+ fruits or getting a “critical” which gives you 10 points. Multiplayer allows you to play against a friend or a random player as long as you are within radius of wifi. In multiplayer mode you are against the clock, you have to slice the color of your fruit but if you slice one of your opponents fruit then you get 3 points automatically deducted however if you slice one without any color you get 3 points added onto your score. At the end of the minute whoever has the most point’s wins. In Zen mode you must play against the clock, unlike classic mode there are no bombs and no lives. You have 90 seconds to get as high a score as you can, you can still get combos, and interesting facts in this mode. The app also allows you to post your high scores to social networking sites Facebook and Twitter, and also to the apps official leader boards, where you can browser the records for the last 24 hours, the last week and of all time.
