The popular puzzle game app, Fruit Ninja, is celebrating a record-breaking 300 million iPhone downloads with a host of new updates, leading to hopes that the game could yet become the most popular smartphone puzzle app in history.
Fruitninjaforpc.net, a popular online magazine devoted to all the latest news, updates, hints and tips regarding Fruit Ninja, can reveal that the game has earned an estimated $897 million for Apple and its creators Halfbrick, since the game was first released in the App Store just over two years ago. Its 300 million downloads means that the game has now been downloaded onto one third of all iPhones in the United States, an incredible feat by any standard.
However, the crazy stats don’t end there. Fruitninjaforpc.net said that the cumulative time spent playing Fruit Ninja by all of its players totals over 100 years, every single day.
In order to celebrate the incredible milestone, makers Halfbrick have announced a swathe of new updates for the game, which is now available in the App Store.
Among the updates are several new fruits for ninjas to slice, as well as a new, virtual currency – Starfruit. Fruitninjaforpc.net said that gamers would be able to spend the Starfruit currency in a new marketplace, purchasing new power ups that let them explode and swat away bombs, or add time to the game.
Dan Lim, Chief Editor of Fruitninjaforpc.net, said that he thought the new updates would only serve to increase the popularity of the game, on both the iPhone and other major mobile platforms:
“Few games have had such an incredible impact as Fruit Ninja. The game’s simple yet highly addictive, non-stop action gameplay has led to it becoming a real phenomenon – it’s no surprise that it’s hit the 300 million downloads mark so soon.”
“Fans need not worry about the updates. Having already seen it with my own eyes, I can reassure people that the updates have done nothing detrimental to the game’s excellent formula. On the contrary, they will only serve to enhance the overall experience of the game, and that will surely lead to even more downloads in the near future.”
Dan Lim pointed out that the updates would also allow more experienced players to better their current scores, meaning that many existing records would be broken soon.
