    i'm sure there's been a few of these threads in the past. i actually read some of them, but they are all quite outdated and everything listed is a shooter.

    looking to find a game to play with a 9yo. she really likes fruit ninja, so that's the baseline. shooters probably won't apply here...

    anything fun and, for lack of a better term, age-less...like fruit ninja? i don't want a game that's only fun for kids but she won't want one that isn't fun for kids...

    any thoughts would be appreciated...

    thanks!

    that's a good idea...do you have to be on the same network to play online?

    Go Native! is a great option. It's got online multiplayer and is good for any age providing they can read English.

    i played a similar game not too long ago. it's a fun idea, but you definitely need a strong online following to really get it to kick off. i might check it out at some point, but i don't think it's what she's after. FWIW, going free for a little bit would really expand the player base and things can happen exponentially from there...

    that looks intriguing, but i need something with multiplayer today. i'll keep my eye on that title, though. it looks like it could be fun.

    thanks for the suggestions!
