General bug fixes and minor improvements.


Slice fruit, don’t slice bombs – that is all you need to know to get started with the addictive Fruit Ninja action!

From there, explore the nuances of Classic, Zen and the fan favorite Arcade mode to expand your skills. Slice for a high score, use powerups and special bananas to maximum effect, and go crazy on the multi-slice Pomegranate.

All Blades and Dojos now have a unique effect on gameplay. Want a ten-fruit Great Wave? Bouncing clouds to never drop a fruit? Swirling tornados for epic combos? Mix and match your gear, experiment with all the powers and find what works for you!

There has never been a better time to play Fruit Ninja, so unsheath your sword and see what’s new in the game that started it all.

This is still just the beginning – we can’t wait for everyone to join us!

I don’t agree with the terms so they are refusing me to play!

You should Be allowed to play even though you disagree with the terms and conditions!!! No one should be locked out of a game for resuming to agree with something they don’t!!!
Your update caused it to glitch!
Hglt2r on 6/13/2018
Please FIX THE APP. Every time I hit the app to access it, I get the HALFBRICK picture and then it goes away. I can't play the game. Your update messed it up. 😕
You guys blew it.
[!Ghost in the Machine!] on 6/12/2018
I’ve played Fruit Ninja almost since the beginning. Over six years. But you just locked the game behind a new privacy policy that I cannot, in good conscience, agree to. So I reluctantly bid this game farewell and hope that some day the Halfbrick team realizes that fun with too many strings attached isn’t really fun at all.

Finally came back and started to enjoy the game again. I have the weekend off and it won't open. It just crashes. I'm so frustrated I decided to write a review.
Awesome game, needs cherries!
[Hamlet] on 6/7/2018
Great game. Always loved it. Cherries are a great fruit. Cherries are the best fruit. Not fake cherries. The best cherries. Please add cherries.
Love this game but....
YcKir on 5/30/2018
I really really love this game but i would love it if u can bring event items such as the bat blade into the classic fruit ninja.I think a lot of people play both free and payed version and I think people would love to bring event items from the free version to the paid version.
This used to be one of my favorite games
Drewsky5 on 5/29/2018
5/2018 Update: This game is still way worse than it used to be. On top of my prior complaints, now I’ve lost all of my blades and dojos and the game is just about unplayable on the iPhone X due to the swipe gestures. Now no multiplayer, stupid IAP, and ads. Ads? I payed for this game and it's been completely ruined and unplayable. Here's a good example of a game that has been completely ruined by freemium.
Mini games
Too much work to read the news on 4/29/2018
I love fruit ninja! My only problem with this version is that my favorite part of fruit ninja was the mini games. Please bring them to this version!
What's the difference?!
Christalize on 3/24/2018
Between the classic & non-classic versions?

Every time I click I mean slice watch the app crashes. Also can you make the app more fun?
I Love Fruit Ninja!
One and only CocoG on 2/16/2018
My other review was from a while ago. I am SO happy they got rid of all that stupid star fruit and now you can just play the game like it was supposed to be! I think all that star fruit stuff is crap and that you should earn the blades by doing stuff. I have been playing Fruit Ninja since it came out all those years ago and then when they released the star fruit I stopped playing Fruit Ninja. Thank you Halfbrick Studios for removing star fruit!
Best game

Best game for ios😁
Swords aren't working, so many bugs
Miss.Skylar on 1/27/2018
So many new blades!! Oh, sorry, did I say blades? I meant bugs. So many new bugs. Comet blade no longer creates the gravity waves Piano blade gets rid of bananas instead of turning them into frenzy bananas If I get a notification, like low battery, the game will think my fingers are where ever they had been when it popped up, and sparks or stars or what ever visual effect of the blade I was using will stay flying out of the spot. It will only go away when I force quit the app. If I used two fingers, the game will act like I'm using four and switch apps. Then when I come back, the game thinks I'm still touching my fingers there and will tap or cut anything underneath until I force quit the app. This has happened when I'm only using one finger a few times as well. Also, as someone on level 54, I would like to be able to earn more blades when I reach new levels. There's a blade on level 60 and level 100. It's just not as fun.
Extra game modes??
Spellslinger on 1/20/2018
I’ve always been a fan of fruit ninja.. one of my favorite games to pass the time on my phone. However I recently redownloaded it after a while and I only have a classic mode? I don’t see arcade mode or anything else anywhere
Online multiplayer
Imranp128 on 12/16/2017
Why is online multiplayer gone?!?!?
Christmas update please
Parkerisnotimmortal on 12/2/2017
It’s December 2
caitklob11 on 11/12/2017
I am not going to slice fruit if you don't do good updates, the new update does not have new blades or new background, it was bugs that was fixed, not happy.
Great game.
Taxburdett on 11/6/2017
Great game. Thanks for fixing my previous problem.
Lost all my swords
qpssi on 10/26/2017
New bug just deleted all my data and Swords and level please fix .-.
Best game ever 👍👍👍
Fhhxst on 9/29/2017
It is a really good app, but it needs a sequel like veggie ninja. 👍
Puss in Boots Fruit Ninja......
crazy4siberians on 9/28/2017
Please make PIB fruit ninja compatible with iOS 11!
Jaydog4372 on 8/22/2017
This game is great it is so fun to unlock all the blades! But I think they should make a head swipe vr fruit ninja! It could be 180 or 360!! That would be so awesome! Please consider this!!!!!!!! Also I know there is a version for non mobile vr so it would be so awesome for mobile!! This game is so awesome ❤️ halfbrick.
The pause button
IMDH96 on 8/22/2017
The pause button barely works. It's hard to pause when I want to.
Extra Blades and Dojos
Mekdkekaj on 7/12/2017
This is awesome. The star fruit and golden apples are removed, and you can turn your star fruit and golden apples into experience, and get to level 100 for that, but it does NOT effect Fruit Ninja Free. There are a lot of new blades and dojos, and some of the normal dojos do different things. So, it has no in app purchases, but new blades and dojos. Nice!
Awesome Game
rixtoyfoxdfifiid on 6/16/2017
Halfbrick the next time you come with a update in fruit ninja classic please put a new fruit in the game and let the new fruit be cherries that's one fruit you forget to put in the game that's not only my favorite fruit but in this game cherries in fruit ninja would be awesome so please do that in the next update and instead of the app icon being a watermelon let the icon picture be a cherry because if you put cherries in the game that should be the app icon because it's a new fruit so please do that in the next update peace
ECO NICKNAME on 6/16/2017
Interesting Weapons! This app could be great! I had 2 iPads to share at times with my younger brother! On the red iPad, it was great! I'm getting really good at this! At the blue iPad, I really don't know if it might download, some of the apps can not work on the blue iPad! I'm kinda Excited this app worked perfectly for me!
Don't get

What is this?
Funtobewith on 4/13/2017
This new updated reset all progress. I was around level 56. And now I'm back to 1? Whats the point of having the game if you're gonna reset our progress?
Where is Ghostbusters?
Trish7774532 on 3/31/2017
I bought this app specifically because you were advertising a Ghostbusters version! However it is nowhere to be found! I want my money back!!!!
update reset me
Half_Baked on 3/23/2017
the latest update reset all my ****ing progress
Digital Ruse on 3/15/2017
If you bought the full version, don't wait for updates. If you are thinking of buying this version, don't as it appears it will not see significant updates. All efforts are clearly directed toward the freemium version hence the new "classic" designation in this "bug fix" update and the freemium version getting a new name.
loner0919 on 3/14/2017
Great game with good graphics, not like the free version were everything cost stuff
Gogo yabari on 3/13/2017
Why did you even bother changing the theme of this game? The old theme was better. What's with all the new characters?
NebulaState on 2/26/2017
I love the roster of fruits to slice and dice! How about sending us more fruit, like the olive?

Unable to play due to a corrupted profile. :/
indyana8965 on 2/18/2017
It's been a few years since I've booted this game up. Game loads and I notice that my profile pic is LITERALLY corrupted. I became curious and decided to open it. Came crashing to the floor. Now whenever I try to reload the game itself, crashes as soon it's done loading. I don't know if I'm poor for using an IPhone 4th gen or the problem persists with others. I'd seriously appreciate the feedback on the matter. And yes, I've tried rebooting the phone and reinstalling the game multiple times. - indyana8965.
No iMessage App in paid version?
BobSmith42 on 2/16/2017
While searching for iMessage apps I discover that the free version of Fruit Ninja has one, but the paid for version doesn't? So I have to have both installed if I want an iMessage app?
Fun, but however....
Dragons952 on 2/14/2017
Fruit Ninja was one of the first games I purchased when I got a iOS device, it's definitely one of my favorite games on mobile. However, as of right now the paid version does not have that much content compared to the free version for some odd reason. I didn't find out about about it until just recently that there are so much Fruit Ninja content that I have missed out on! There are special event blades that could only be unlocked on the free version?! If anything, I overall would recommend the free version over the paid one because you can just about obtain anything on the free version that the paid version has. After finding out about it, I did end up regretting purchasing the paid version since it is nothing special. Hopefully the paid version will eventually be able to get all the new content that the free version has in the future....
Sweet honey badger on 2/6/2017
Nice game. Wasted hours on it. Decided to keep to playing over a few weeks until I earned the Golden Ember Blade at Level 100. Guess what happens who you reach Ultimate? The level-up ninja star indefinitely spins over "100". As for access to the Golden Ember Blade? DENIED. I'm still locked out. So you have to pay $9.99 no matter what if you want it. Otherwise 5 star game. But I have to deduct a star on this (and I refuse to pay the fee on principle). Probably this is not relevant to most who play the game, but this was a little frustrating.
Purchase does not include ghostbusters!!!!
E9876543214 on 2/1/2017
This is advertised as fruit ninja with ghostbusters. Bought the game and found out it is an additional $5 in app purchase for ghostbusters content! This is terrible business to cheat your customers!
It's just a money grab
Johnpet57 on 1/29/2017
This used to be a great game, now it's just a money grab. Basically, you're not having any fun unless you pay for everything.
Great Game
Nawaf IB on 1/26/2017
Recommend it
🔥🔴 on 1/20/2017
This game use to be great, maybe the best on the app store. But now its just been drowned in in-app-purchases and forgotten. I miss Fruit Ninja's golden days
Downward spiral
Lisaponch on 12/23/2016
What does ghostbusters have to do with fruit ninja?
Backwards Business
Catsmiles on 12/19/2016
I don't even remember buying the Fruit Ninja app (I think it may have been one of or maybe the first purchase I made when I got an iPhone), but I feel like it's stupid to have two versions of a game and the free version is the one that gets the content. That's a backward business model if I ever saw one. I love in-app events! I don't mind paying a little bit every few months for something small. I'd be so down for the winter event if it was available on my version! But it's not, so Halfbrick has lost a surefire paying customer.
Great Game!
Helpless58 on 12/15/2016
I like the game a lot. There are certain things about that are odd. For example, why is the free version different from the paid one. It should be the same. A winter theme needs to be done for the paid version.
When is the next update coming out?
Robpcfl on 12/11/2016
I reached level 100 and expected to go further. The special blades and Dojo's should also be unlockable without having to spend money.
Waste Purchase
Natsume Kaze on 12/9/2016
I have just purchased Fruit Ninja after 2 years of free version, and i see that it was a totally waste! The free version is 2.4.4 and the purchased version is 2.3.8. So if i want to join the XMas Event, i must have Free version on my gadget. 2 copies of 1 game on 1 gadget? So what the point to purchase this game?
RIP Full Version
Minecrafter SV on 12/6/2016
Doesn't get updated. Halfbrick has given up on this full version. First they remove online multiplayer, then they stop updating. Don't buy this. Play the free one. Ads appear here too.
