The title "Fruit Ninja" conveys almost everything you need to know about this game. There is fruit. You cut it, like a ninja. The gameplay for this addictive title consists of little more than players rapidly sliding their fingers back and forth across the iPad's touchscreen to slice fruit and earn points for each melon or berry cleaved into little pieces.
Hitting multiple pieces of fruit with one slice is worth more points, but three misses will end the game. "Fruit Ninja" follows the classic score attack formula: Short sessions for high scores keep gamers coming back again and again. "Fruit Ninja" supports local competitive multiplayer on a single iPad in addition to online multiplayer.
"Fruit Ninja HD" currently sells for $2.99 in the iTunes App Store.
