PSA: ‘Fruit Ninja’ and Other Halfbrick Studios Games Free for One Day

by Marianne Schultz

Our sister site, TouchArcade, pointed out this incredible sale early this morning and it bears repeating for those of you who aren’t aware yet. Halfbrick Studios, the maker of Fruit Ninja and other assorted fantastic games, has made all of its paid iPhone and iPad games free for today only. This includes the ever-popular Fruit Ninja, along with the newer Puss in Boots variant that was released late last year.

In Fruit Ninja, your goal is to slice as much fruit that’s tossed on the screen as possible with a virtual sword. There are various game modes in which you need to avoid bombs, not let any whole fruit drop out of sight, or simply slice up as much fruit as you can in a limited period of time. There are even multiplayer modes so you can play with someone else locally on the iPad or test your fruit-slicing skills remotely against a friend or a random stranger via Game Center.

I know it may not sound very exciting but it’s incredibly fun and I’ve wasted a lot of time destroying harmless virtual fruit. You can check out the review of Fruit Ninja: Puss in Boots over at TouchArcade if you want a deeper peek at it. But I’d suggest you just skip that and get right to downloading. Be sure to click the Buy Now buttons below before 6:00 am GMT (that’s 1:00 am EST for those of you on the east coast in the US) on Tuesday, December 18.

    Why do you promote those Halfbrick stuff? Like it? ;-)

    Well, Fruit Ninja has never been free before so it was definitely worth a mention. And, yes, I do like it (and Jetpack Joyride) a lot! :) I did download Age of Zombies as well to give it a whirl.
