This used to be one of my favorite games growing up! I used to score very high! This game is one of those games that starts out easy but the more time you spend playing during the round, it gets harder and harder by the fruit spending less time in the air and more and more fruit coming at the same time. There is a little bit a violence, though, but only when you slice the fruit, which is the whole point of the game. Also, the educational value is that you learn your fruits as a result of playing this game. I would recommend it to most children and also adults for entertainment purposes. I still like to play it sometimes to revisit old childhood memories, and I’m an adult. This is a very well-made, addictive game about simple stuff.

Is It Any Good?

There's something beautifully simple about FRUIT NINJA. Gorgeously rendered fruit gets tossed up in the air before you, and you swat at it to slice it up before it hits the ground. It's the perfect way to release your aggressions and feel like an Iron Chef at the same time. As it begins with only one fruit at a time being tossed at you, you think, "What's the big deal?" Then the fruits come flying and you're slashing like crazy, halting abruptly when you happen to catch glimpse of a bomb that's been tossed into the mix. It's the kind of game that makes you want to keep playing, trying to surpass your previous score each time.

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.
