Fruit Ninja (Series) Review

Posted: 21 months ago, last updated 4 weeks ago.

Author: @GeekDadGamer and Jo Robertson.


An array of brightly coloured fruit flies into the screen area and you need to slice each piece in two before it falls to the floor. The technicolour action combines with simple interactive taps and swipes to make it accessible to all ages.

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.
