Fruit Ninja: Puss in Boots :: iPhone Game Review
Fruit meets fairytales in Fruit Ninja: Puss in Boots for the iPhone. Read Kidzworld’s review to see how cats and cantaloupes combine in this new game.
Fans of the feisty feline Puss in Boots will remember his antics in the movie Shrek. Now the crazy cat is getting his own screen time in the new movie Puss in Boots, which will be out October 2011. The classic iPhone game Fruit Ninja has joined the adventure, giving us even more of what we all love: an abundance of apples, strawberries, bananas and now tomatoes!
When you start a new game it asks you to choose your destiny: Desperado or Bandito. Desperado Mode is an updated version of the original Fruit Ninja game. Players must slice through fruit and avoid bombs in order to survive. There is no time limit, so gameplay continues until you hit a bomb or miss three pieces of fruit.
Bandito Mode challenges players to become the ultimate outlaw, just like Puss in Boots. The story mode is broken down into three acts and a finale. There are a variety of unique and silly ways to complete the levels. For example, in Act 1 players need to destroy a giant pineapple. Slicing the large fruit results in a smorgasbord of tinier fruits that also need to be slashed. Other challenges include slicing 10 pieces of fruit, which come at you in hilarious new ways and patterns. Players have three lives to get them through to the end of Bandito Mode. If you die before reaching the finale you will need to start over.
One of the best elements of the original Fruit Ninja game was the ability to change backgrounds and swords. The new version offers even more options! Additional blade options include the cat claw, the guitar, the beanstalk and the firework. Backgrounds are taken from the Puss in Boots movie and include San Ricardo, Giant’s Castle and a treasure room. Each option can be unlocked after completing specific challenges, so see if you can enjoy them all!
