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.
