As if the release of Wordament for Xbox Live wasn’t reason enough for Windows Phone gamers to celebrate, we get a new price drop today as well. Halfbrick’s Fruit Ninja now costs 99 cents, down from the original price of $2.99.
Fruit Ninja is the world’s most popular fruit-slicing game. It’s made all the rounds, including getting an exclusive Kinect version on Xbox 360. The Windows Phone version lags behind the iOS version (and the 360 one) in terms of content, but even in its woefully not-updated-for-Mango form, it’s a fun and approachable game. Choose one of three game modes and go to town on those dastardly, nutritional fruits! The Xbox Live Achievements are glitchy for some users, but on the whole they’re fairly reasonable and you’ll probably get them all after a while. Check out our review for more impressions.
As I said before, Halfbrick seems to have dropped the ball with updating Fruit Ninja on Windows Phone. The ball must have fallen down a well, where it's extremely difficult to retrieve. The Australian developer also announced Age of Zombies back at the Windows Phone launch, and yet the game has never materialized. Unfortunately for us, they are averse to answering emails, so we can’t provide an official word on whether they’ve dropped Windows Phone support. As we wait for Age of Zombies to materialize (or even Jetpack Joyride, for that matter!), feel free to email ol’ Halfbrickey and ask them to show Windows Phone the love it deserves.
Fruit Ninja now costs $.99, the same as the original iOS game. Get it here on the Marketplace, my fellow ninjas.
