Fruit Ninja Coming April 21

By , on April 13, 2010

Aussie game developers Halfbrick have announced the upcoming release of their first iPhone game Fruit Ninja. Swipe your finger across the screen to deliciously slash and splatter fruit like a true ninja warrior. But be careful of the bombs, which are explosive to the touch and will put a swift end to your juicy adventure!

"Violent and visceral combat. It's you versus a watermelon," says Luke Muscat, lead designer. "Who hasn't wanted to attack a melon with a sword just to see it explode? We've captured the awesome feeling of splatty squishiness, and thanks to the hands-on touch controls of the iPhone, you really feel satisfied with the sweet, juicy carnage on the screen!"

Fruit Ninjas also uses OpenFeint, so players can unlock achievements and shoot for the top of the global leaderboards while racking up OpenFeint points. Your success will also please the wise ninja Sensei, who will accompany your journey with wise words and fun fruit facts.

Fruit Ninja will be released April 21st worldwide on the App Store for a juice-inducing price of $0.99.

Step up, wield your katana and enjoy the messiest and most satisfying fruit game ever!
