This simple game would probably entice gamers to play it for much longer without the far-too-frequent ads that pop up for other game downloads. Fruit Master is swamped with ads throughout the game. Some are 30 seconds long, but even the shorter ones often can't immediately be dismissed. They interrupt playing so often it's hard to get into a groove -- and to win at Fruit Master, you need to. Playing repeated rounds helps you figure out the best time to click on the screen to release your weapon to hit as many items as possible. That's particularly important in later rounds, when fruit speeds up, slows down, and abruptly switches the direction it's circling around the screen, which makes it harder to hit.

Making things even harder is the fact that you're not able to tell how many times you need to win a round to get to the next level -- or how many levels there even are in the game, unless you pay close attention to the quick mention in the app description before downloading it -- can be a little frustrating. It's too bad, because the test of skill in Fruit Master could be fun for players, but its the constant ads and lack of info that ruins the gameplay.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
