Fruit Ninja Landing on Android Market Tomorrow!

We’re starting to see a nice migration of popular iOS apps over to Android (Angry Birds baby!) and users who like to game on the go should be pretty excited for this next one.  Ever heard of Fruit Ninja?  The ultra-addicting, fruit slicing goodness of a game will land on the Android Market tomorrow.  Yep, 9/15/Wednesday/Hump Day.  In the video below, shot by Noah of Phonedog, you can see the game in action (on an i*ad unfortunately), plus one of the new game modes that should be included in an update some time over the next few weeks.  (Android announcement at the 4:00 mark.)

On a related note, there is an app in the market now called “Fruit Ninja Kaka” which looks to be pretty similar, but isn’t made by Hailbrick…check it out if you want though as it is free.

Anyone else excited that we are finally starting to see some quality in our Android world?

    Too bad this file is WAY too big. 15 MB installed with no apps2sd. Uninstalling until they fix this. Kaka is pretty close for a QUICK play (I know the real game is a lot better) But for me, Kaka is 214kb when installed to SD. Fruit Ninja is 15 MB. Big difference.

    iPad rules! Can't wait for 2nd generation and iPhone to be on VZW in January! oh Android is awesome as well, but I'll be an iPhone owner soon!

  • lvmydroid

    Why is it that if they come from i*hone they're immediately considered quality apps ? I have angry birds and can't wait for the full version, but why aren't there some quality apps just for android ( yes, I know there are a few floating around here and there – like launcherpro, that the OTHER one will probably never see ).

      How about custom roms??

    I'm really excited that more quality apps are making their way over to Android. I love angry birds, I usually dont like buying games but once the full beta comes out I'm getting that one, and my better games keeps the 10yr old happy when their bored!! AMEN TO GAMES ON MY ANDROID PHONE!

    These guys are making millions… No exaggeration!

  • JubbaTheHutt

    I truly hope Rovio and Halfbrick consider bringing their two major games to the Android market with the same price-point in mind ($.99).

  • JTE

    good trend indeed! (still hoping on a Peggle port)

  • The350zWolf

    Hey Kellex, don't mean to be rude, but it is Halfbrick and not Hailbrick. Just a minor detail I suppose…

    This is one of those games that sounds weird on paper, but looks awesome when put in practice. Definitely getting this one.

  • aaronvail

    AWESOME! I had this app for my i*od touch (just sold it on ebay) and thought it was pretty fun and addicting.. I would love this on my Droid! xD

    Unity 3 is coming out with Android support, so a lot of games on iOS built with version 2 are being ported to Android. Expect this trend to continue once it's official release is out.

    quality over quantity

    would rather have 100 outstanding apps than 100,000 mediocre ones

    • Angry Birds Champ

      I agree, but its too late… :(

      We already have a hundren thousand crap apps out in the market…
