NINJAS HATE FRUIT, BUT LOVE THE APP STORE!

April 21th, 2010 - Fruit Ninja has stealthily killed its way to the App Store, and is now available worldwide for a juice-inducing price of 99 cents!

Swipe your finger across the screen to deliciously slash and splatter fruit like a true ninja warrior. Be careful of bombs - they 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 Ninja 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.

But what’s next for Fruit Ninja? Over the coming weeks and months, the development team will be adding new modes, new fruit, new functionality and new ninja goodness– all free of charge. We have established a great game with today’s release and will only be expanding more and more and gamers worldwide get their hungry hands on the action.

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