Fruit Ninja Goes Free to Play with New Ad-Supported Version

Jul 21, 2011

Fruit Ninja has been a rare example of not only a paid app that has been a mammoth success on Android, but an iOS port that maintained the paid app model in the transition to Android, without even a free version available. That has changed as of today, with Fruit Ninja Free. This is an ad-supported version of the game, featuring ads after play sessions. As well, there is a link to rewards program Beintoo, that likely is helping generate revenue for this free game. All the modes and features of the full version are present here. Fruit Ninja Free also includes additional language support, as well as some performance tweaks to make the game run better on more devices. Halfbrick have largely stayed away from free to play on Android continuing to distribute apps as paid apps, but because Fruit Ninja has cross-platform popularity, a free version makes plenty of sense. Fruit Ninja Free is now available from the Android Market.
