There's little doubt that the world has fallen in love with the fruit-slicing phenomenon that is "Fruit Ninja." The game has been a tremendous success on mobile devices and just recently debuted on the Xbox 360. Its march to fruit domination will continue next week with the release of the beta for "Fruit Ninja Frenzy" on Facebook. Halfbrick, the game's developer, gave me access to "Frenzy" a few weeks ago, and since then I've sliced many a piece of fruit (14,243 at present count). It's with that knowledge that I present to you this guide to being the very best Fruit Ninja you can be.
"Fruit Ninja Frenzy" is basically the arcade mode of the original "Fruit Ninja." You're limited to one minute per round, with the objective of earning as many points as possible. Slicing multiple pieces of fruit at once grants you bonus points, and there are power bananas (freeze, 2X points and frenzy) which will help you boost your score even further. There is, however, one big change between "Frenzy" and the other versions of "Fruit Ninja."
Smoothies are a new addition for "Fruit Ninja Frenzy" which change the way each round plays out. Before a game, you can select a single smoothie from a list of 12 options. Here's a list of what smoothies you can select:
Spirit Bombs - Bombs are no longer slice-able.
Extra Time - Rounds last 67 seconds instead of 60 seconds.
Sweet Start - Each round starts with a random power banana.
Final Splash - Rounds end with 5 seconds of bonus time and a power banana.
Blitz Boost - Increases the combo blitz cap by 5 points.
Combo King - Combos are easier and are worth more points.
Mega Freeze - Double the amount of fruit that appears after a Freeze banana.
Frenzy Rush - Fruit Frenzies from power bananas last 2 additional seconds.
Points Bonanza - Get 25 bonus points every time you get a 2X score power banana.
Lucky Blast - The first bomb you slice turns into a random power banana.
Bonus Bounty - Double the bonuses you get at the end of the round.
Ninja Criticals - Criticals are more common and easier to get.
The first three smoothies in this list are unlocked at the start. The others can be unlocked with Starfruit, earned by getting achievements (see page 2).
You can opt to bring in up to three smoothies at once, but those additional two smoothie slots cost Facebook credits. Smoothies also cost you a certain amount of juice per round and if you run out of juice, you won't be able to use any more smoothies until you collect more from playing the game.
