“Shameless tie-in meets addictive-but-shallow new game mode. We love it now, but won’t respect it in the morning.”£0.69
The original Fruit Ninja is a swipe-based slash ’em up — you slice fruit and avoid bombs. This cash-in thankfully enables you to turn off an Antonio Banderas soundalike’s tedious voiceover and delve into the survival high-score mode from the original Fruit Ninja and a new mini-game Desperado mode.
We love the latter’s breakneck pace and variety, although we finished it during our first go, and subsequent plays show up this collection as being shallow. It’s a pity developer Halfbrick was hypnotised by DreamWorks’s cash, because a deeper Desperado could have been a fantastic Fruit Ninja sequel.
