App description: Frootrees is insane and the reviews speak for themselves....

"I have to say that the risk vs. reward mechanism in this game is brilliant. You want to do the lob move, to get the local multipliers, but it takes much more skill than the drag move. It's also interesting that the low-threat, early to mid-game is when the lob is the easiest to pull off, but it is in the end-game, when you have racked up a higher global modifier that it really matters. The more I play this, the more I like it." - DJ Flippy, Touch Arcade Forums

"I really recommend this title, if you guys and girls have overlooked it, for whatever reason. I have consistently returned to it, because TheTinMan [Tin Man Games] has hit on such a perfect combination of simplicity and depth. The screenshots really don't do it justice, because the game is very involving. I'm not even sure that a video would capture it either; you really need to play it." - DJ Flippy, Touch Arcade Forums

"Overall I give this app 4.5 out of 5 because its very well writtenits a great game that I would recommend to anyone!" - App Tap Reviews

"it is games like Frootrees that I have a great deal of respect for. You are seeing a lot of games come out that are take offs on a good idea. This is not a negative, but those games become over done and the originality is gone. Frootrees by Tin Man Games is an original fun game for the iPhone and iPod Touch." - Crazy Mike's Apps

"Frootrees is a cute app. Sickeningly cute. The artwork is what stands out most, as it is a Nick Jr. Cartoon design, but the voices of the red apples and purple plums will catch your attention. If you can imagine South Park character Ikes Kindergarten classroom, you can think of the voices. Theyre simply too cute to listen to.

Adults will like the challenging time frame of being consistent and will try to have the highest score. I am looking forward to best my score of 326 soon enough because I know I can and that is what you want from an iPhone/iPod Touch app replay value." - App Girl Reviews

So what is Frootrees???

Grow and harvest Froot from your own personal Frootree. Pluck feisty Plum, confused Pear, cool Orange and anxious Apple from their branches as they yawn and giggle their way to life and collect them in your Frootbaskets.

Frootrees is great for beginners, but to reap the ultimate harvesting rewards, risks must be taken and Froot-picking skills matured. To score points players must pluck Froot before they wither and fall to the ground. Picking Froot at their ripest means maximum points will be achieved. A number of well-timed plucks in a row will lead to multipliers, and fighting gravity will give extra bonus points too.

The cute Froots will keep you entertained as they blossom, and they will continue to grow so you can continue to harvest. Challenge friends and family in this classic arcade-style Froot-picking extravaganza, and compete with others online using the AGON online platform!
