Fruit Ninja, one of the most popular mobile games of all time, is celebrating its two year anniversary and developer HalfbrickStudios has released a major update for the game.
Fruit Ninja now includes a new currency system in the form of the Starfruit. You get a thousand of these once you install the update and get more as you play the game. You will be able to use these in a new section called Gatsu’s Cart, where you will find additional items that give you special abilities.
Bomb Deflects lets you, well, deflect bombs from the screen. When you swipe on a bomb, instead of exploding and ending the game the bomb is merely pushed out of the screen. You can purchase as many as you can afford but you can only use three per game.
Berry Blasts are strawberries that explode when you swipe them, destroying all the other fruits and also giving you five points.
Peachy Time gives special peaches that provide additional time in Arcade and Zen Mode.
You can also use the Starfruit to purchase the previously available items such as backgrounds and swords. If you run out of Starfruits, just keep playing the game or use the in-app purchase option to buy some more.
For now this update is only available on iOS. Click on the link below to download the game.
