Fruit Eater is a free mini-game for kids published by Renatus http://renatus.com. Do you remember the overall craze for handheld water ring toss games back in the 90's? What we have here is its virtual prototype playable on android devices.
The game belongs to arcade genre. Toddlers or preschoolers may find it interesting and absorbing due to the utmost simplicity, while their parents find it useful in many other ways. You'll understand why after taking a closer look at Fruit Eater.
First of all, let me introduce its main and the only character – a sweet blue Hippo babe who is known for his love of healthy food. The little Hippo is hungry and the player's mission is to feed him. That's all. Unfortunately, he is completely static (except for a big insatiable mouth) and is obviously condemned by the developers to stay eternally in the middle of screen, as if he is pinned. But the fun of the fair is in the feeding process!
Let's imagine that you pushed 'play' button a second ago, here's what you will see on your screen: a Hippo, a crowd of air bubbles with multicoloured fruits inside and a 'push' button below. The gameplay is completely intuitive: 'push' button is a trigger that opens the Hippo's mouth and discharges a jet of air forcing bubbles into a mad dance. You are to drive all fruits into the Hippo's mouth by tilting your device left- or rightwards. The sooner you deliver all food into the belly, the better. In spite of the fact that Fruit Eater has no time-limited sessions, a small timer at the top of the screen will always remind you that fast feeding may bring a good time bonus. Note that each bubble swallowed by the Hippo brings 100 points, plus, at the end of each session you get a lavish fruit bonus.
The game in fact consists of short game sessions that are completed after all 8 bubbles are fed to the Hippo, but there's no development or complexity increase. One may play it forever, occasionally sharing the score with friends on Facebook to find out whose progress is better.
The only features that may be customized are backgrounds and the Hippo's ration. Player can tap 'Tune' button in the main menu to choose among the range of picturesque underwater locations and sets of exotic fruits, vegetables or berries.
Fruit Eater's got everything to win kids' affection! Children like it when it's bright and lively. Check! Nice 'plumpy' graphics made with all rainbow colours will do its job. User-friendly menu and controls enable kids to play it without Dad’s or Mom’s help. Cool and funny true-to-life gurgling sounds that accompany the movement of bubbles have a soothing, mesmerizing effect.
Although a little bit primitive, Fruit Eater has educational value: kids learn to find cause-and-result relations and predict the trajectory of bubbles while playing. It can't but positively influence the child's logical abilities. Another good point of the game is that it promotes healthy lifestyle. Certainly, there's no 100% effect, but we hope that yummy fruits and vegetables floating on the screen will make kids more likely to eat fruits rather than sweets or fast food.
To sum it up, I’d say that Fruit Eater is a treat for kids’ eyes and a food for their minds. It will definitely settle down the fidget child giving a couple of minutes for mom or dad to relax. The only thing I would add to the game is gradual complexity to increase players’ interest and make it more challenging to play.Download Fruit Eater on Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.renatus.fruiteater
