We have also worked more on balancing the multiplayer game, in addition to several small Game Center bugs.

What's New In Version 1.4
BRAND NEW GAME CENTER MULTIPLAYER MODE!

Holy apples, Sensei! We have a brand new multiplayer mode, thanks to Game Center! Now you and your friends can finally throw down the challenge, and settle the age old argument - Who is the better Fruit Ninja?

It couldn't be simpler to play - slice your fruit, and avoid your friend’s fruit! Keep an eye out for the special fruit that anyone can slice ... you'll have to be fast to collect the extra points!

If you have a Game Center enabled device, simply visit the mode select screen and get slicing. If you are playing the Auto match-up, keep an eye out because you never know if you might run into someone from the development team, honing their skills!

The whole team is very proud to have one of the first iPhone games ever to utilize Game Center for multiplayer! We will be supporting Game Center in future updates also, with leaderboards and achievements on the way next!

We have another major and exciting Fruit Ninja update in the works, and the Secret Banana Mode will be a secret no more!

Stay juicy!
The Fruit Ninja Team

I'm not sure if this has been mentioned before, but I think there should be a combo mode. The number of fruit cut in one slicing motion multiplies your score.

In the meantime, I have a question - which is your favorite fruit to slash? I'm actually hearing lots of reports on the banana, which oddly enough is the least dramatic. Thoughts?

Soon like... tomorrow?

This is honestly the first game on my iTouch that i'm eagerly awaiting an update for. The rest all are either 'good enough' or it seems the new update won't revamp the overall gameplay.

With this game, it's different - a small update could make the game so much more fun / challenging. Seeing the high scores rocket after adding multipliers / multi-slice will make it all the more amazing.

Submit it fast, please please please

I like killing strawberries.. All the fruit slashing encourages me to eat more of it =P

Also, if you make any serious gameplay changes, could you please make
it a different mode, and keep the current one under classic?

the fun ends here

Combos would be nice, it'd be cool if there were other looks for the fruit after they've been slashed, like everyone else is saying different game modes.

But it is a good game Maybe more fruit would be good too.

I spoke to my girlfriend earlier and she told me she loves the banana slicing and dicing as well.

I personally like the apple and melon, something about the crunching!

I really like this game, but I think it could use difficulty levels. The bombs are a key aspect of the gameplay, but it can be really frustrating to have slashed 275 fruit without a miss and then hit 1 bomb and it's over. It would be cool if there was an easy setting where if you hit a bomb it only counts as 1 missed fruit. You could also do a hard mode where you can only miss 1 fruit.

Agreed, sometimes I like playing games halfheartedly and this game demands nothing but 100% concentration and can be punishingly difficulty if you're not in the zone. I'd say the biggest thing it needs is a way to sort the bombs out.

Possibly a power up or a way of using your accelerometer to move the bombs in one direction while keeping the fruit as they were etc...

No idea, but it could stop it being so frustrating.
