Halfbrick Studios has released a major content update to Fruit Ninja in celebration of the game’s two year anniversary. The game update provides a range of new features to provide additional challenges and excitement for both new players and veteran fans alike. A new in-game currency and power-up shop have been added; players can earn Starfruit after each game which can then be spent at Gutsu’s Cart to boost their arsenal with unique super fruits and power-ups. Berry Blasts turn normal strawberries into an explosive super fruit taking out nearby fruits in a single swipe, Peachy Time adds extra time in Arcade and Zen modes with each sliced peach, and the Bomb Deflect ninja move allows players to deflect bombs rather than setting them off. Fruit Ninja 1.8 is available from the App Store for $1.
