I have played a ton of casual games, and have to say there are only a few titles that achieve something new, a completely new gameplay or a unique gaming experience. When I played fruit ninja for the first time, I was instantly hooked. The visuals, the gameplay and the sound effects were so awesome that I had a hard time putting my phone down. It’s amazing what a simple game can achieve.
Sometimes I just want to play a game that doesn't require too much thought to master. If I've had a mentally taxing day at work, the last thing I want to do is put my brain through any more pain and suffering.
I think that's why I love Fruit Ninja Classic so much; all I have to do is swipe furiously across the screen of my phone or tablet to annihilate deliciously juicy pieces of animated fruit.
Although I wish it were free to download Fruit Ninja Classic, I can't complain about the ad-free experience because of the payment. It's also worth it to pay for an app when you know it is taken care of by the development team.
Literally, all you have to do is swipe your finger across the screen to make your virtual blade whip through them like butter. The more combinations of slices you can make in one or a group of fruit pieces, the higher your points will stack up by the end of the match.
Another great feature of Fruit Ninja Classic is that you can earn new blades and customize them to fit your style. If you've been looking for a game that won't take any effort on your part to complete, then head to the play store and download Fruit Ninja Classic to start slicing!
Recently, I had to watch my 3 young nieces for the day, and all the youngest wanted to do was play on my phone! Luckily, I had recently purchased Fruit Ninja Classic and knew the mechanics and gameplay were simple enough and appropriate for her.
Although she's using a virtual blade in the game to slice at the fruit, it is only fruit, and there are no other violent tendencies portrayed in the game; just good clean fruit slicing fun!
The best part about Fruit Ninja Classic is it offers just enough of customization options to keep her entertained between matches. This way, I was able to take care of her sisters while she was safely amused close by.
Even though Fruit Ninja Classic is a blast for kids, and has fun, exciting animation that makes you want to slash furiously at those flying fruits, you still can't help but face the facts that the game is just that, slicing at fruit.
After a while, it becomes sort of dull to swipe at your screen, especially when there really isn't much strategy to avoiding the random bombs that will pop up in the way. Most of the time, if you hit a bomb, it doesn't do too much damage anyway.
Even my niece started to get a bit fidgety after the second round of Fruit Ninja Classic. Soon after she was asking to do something else because she was bored!
Fruit Ninja Classic will always be a go-to when you need to kill a little bit of time. However, if you're looking to fill an afternoon with some mobile gaming fun, you might want to find a few more titles to add to your portable library.
This game will occupy your time for at least 15-20 minutes at a time, tops. But don't plan to keep yourself occupied for an entire 4-hour flight like I did.
Overall, Fruit Ninja Classic is a wholesome title with plenty to offer as far as keeping you entertained, there just isn't much playability to the content. If you have young kids I would recommend letting them try out Fruit Ninja Classic, you might only find that it keeps them entertained just long enough to keep you sane!
