Fruit Ninja [.99 / HD / Lite] is a popular game. The touch-based fruit slicing joint has been downloaded to the staggering tune of six million times over its lifespan on the App Store. That’s a lot of fruit death, right? In fact, Halbrick has a number on said fruitricide: 150 billion fruits have met their Primordial Maker since the game’s debut.

In a recent press release, Halfbrick announced the following, an inarguably cute way to make “amends” for all the fruit death: its teaming up with the non-profit Fruit Tree Planting Foundation and sponsoring a fruit orchard in a low-income community in order to help the people there live just a tad bit better. Halfbrick notes that we won’t see the...fruits...of their charitable donation just yet, but it’ll keep an eye on the orchard and give updates about it on its Web site.

Question: surely billions of aliens have been killed in the DOOM series to date. What can id Software donate to the Martians? Less taxing Phobos teleportation machines? Cadavers?

      question was like, way too off-topic.. still funny nonetheless!

    I do love puns... almost as much as I love beards. What? You don't like beards? Give it time, they'll grow on you.

    Way to go Halfbrick! Nice to see a developer putting my $0.99 to good use!

  • Adams Immersive

    I wish I could stomach fruit. I just hate it so, so much!

    • Ahiru Nakamura

      when you have nothing to eat, fruits are the most delicious stuff ever....

    They have made 4.2m dollars from sales of the game (6m/.07) and they sponsor 1 orchard. 5k? Poor publicity stunt, actually use some of the millions of dollars profits instead of a pittance if you want to appear charitable

    It's nice to see Halfbrick putting some of the money they've made to good use. I think it would be a good idea if they helped Queensland fruit farmers as so much of their crops were destroyed by the flood and cyclone (seeing as Halfbrick is an Australian company)
