FruitPunch Leaves You Thirsty for More
It’s well established that addictive games are fun. There’s something about them that just clicks with your dopaminergic reward system, and before you know it, your night’s over after a couple of ‘quick’ rounds. Now mix this with fruit and juice, and you have FruitPunch in your hands, courtesy of XDA Forum Member hIVESaRELaW.
Faced with a glass filled with fruits and juice, the most obvious and instinctive action would be to squash them as quickly as possible.You achieve this by launching fruit into the glass and aiming them at other fruits of the same kind until three or more connect, at which the fruits explode with a satisfying ‘squish!’ However, if you miss the glass, or fruits overflow out of the glass, game’s over, and you’ll have to restart the round.
It’s the little touches here and there that truly makes this game that much more enjoyable. The bright and chromatic colors mixed with the true-to-life sound effects ranging from fruit hitting the glass, to the splashes of the water really adds to the atmosphere and zest of the game play. And with 144 unique levels and an arcade mode, a productive night is no longer an option.
FruitPunch is simple and satisfying with game play in the vein of Match 3 games, which means one addicting game. It’s compatible with any device running Android version 1.6 or newer, and can be downloaded for free from the Play store. So if this has gotten your attention, definitely check out the application thread for more information.
