Fruit Ninja achieved more than 1 billion downloads on all platforms. Following in the footsteps of other giants in the mobile industry, such as Rovio, Halfbrick plans to turn its Fruit Ninja smash hit into a movie.
Rumors about developer Halfbrick trying to find Hollywood players interested in bringing its Fruit Ninja mobile game to bigger screens emerged online around the month of May.
As it is now, it appears that Halfbrick’s search was fruitful, as New Line Cinema has decided to acquire the rights to turn Fruit Ninja mobile game into a movie. It will be produced by Tripp Vinson, the same person who produced New Line Cinema’s movies Journey to the Center of the Earth and San Andreas.
Another interesting piece of information that surfaced recently is the fact that the script is being written by J.P. Lavin and Chad Damiani, the same names behind another hilarious project, How to Survive a Garden Gnome Attack.
FOR THOSE WHO HAVEN’T PLAYED THE GAME BEFORE…
Fruit ninja is played by using a touch pad to slice on-screen fruit. Additional points are awarded for slicing multiple fruit in one swipe.In Fruit Ninja, the player slices fruit with a blade controlled via the touch screen.
As the fruit is thrown onto the screen, the player swipes their finger across the screen to create a slicing motion, attempting to slice the fruit in half. Extra points are awarded for slicing multiple fruits with one swipe, and players can use additional fingers to make multiple slices simultaneously.
Players must slice all fruit; if three fruits are missed, the game ends, but upon reaching scores that are multiples of one hundred (i.e. 100, 200, 300, etc.), the player will gain an extra life (unless they have not missed a piece of fruit already). Bombs are occasionally thrown onto the screen, and will also end the game should the player slice them.
How exactly the story line would go is what I don’t know. Y’all can do me a favour by suggesting a story line. But just watch out for ‘Fruit Ninja – The Movie’. Lol.. I am just kidding, we don’t know the name yet. WATCH OUT.
