Fruit Ninja (Series) Review
Posted: 21 months ago, last updated 4 weeks ago.
It's a game that started on touchscreen devices like iPod Touch and iPad but has then been brought to most other systems. This has added more players, different power-ups and game modes.
Particularly good for pre-schoolers is the Xbox Kinect version, which uses a camera to display an outline of the person’s body on the screen. This allows the child to use arm and leg movements to slice the fruit. For children aged 12 and over there is a PlayStation VR version that extends the experience into a virtual world, encouraging more movement and interactions.

Players: You can play with 2 players in the same room, but you can’t play it online. The levels of Fruit Ninja are mostly timed to last just a few minutes, but progressing to collect all the challenges and improve scores will take considerable time. The PlayStation VR and Xbox Kinect versions of the game take a bit more time to set up before you start playing.
