Fruit Rocks is a funny arcade game for Windows Phone which will remind many of you of Angry Birds, although in the gameplay here none of the members of the feathered family is involved. The plot of the game is centered on very cheerful earthlings who daily celebrated different events in style. All the celebrations were accompanied by beautiful fireworks not only illuminating the sky, but also the orbit of the planet Earth.
Development of eventsOne beautiful (or not) moment, there happened to be such a powerful boost of fireworks that it flew out of the orbit of the Earth and exploded somewhere between Mercury and Venus. As it turned out, aliens lived so close to the Sun who did not like the behavior of their neighbors and decided to deal with the breakers of interplanetary peace. They could have been happy to see a fireworks show, but they decided to punish earthlings that, in their opinion, don't differ from worms and brainless larvae.
Generally speaking, the inhabitants of the two planets closest to the Sun went to the third one, but a big surprise awaited them here. They have not even met with representatives of the human race, as they were rebuffed by the nature, namely the fruit trees. From the moment the game begins, the world around starts moving from right to left, and in terms of that Fruit Rocks reminds a runner. The game cannot be paused and you should have time to destroy all those aliens that you come across by throwing at them apples or oranges, exploding dynamite bombs, and causing a fruit rain from black, black clouds.
Controlling featuresIn order to throw an apple to another intruder, touch a fruit hanging on the tree and make a movement as if you pull a string of a slingshot. At that, you should take into account that the locations are constantly moving forward, and for precise aiming you will have to move your finger in parallel to the game world. Fruits differ from each other in the destructive power, the aliens also show different piercing performance qualities.
Don't be happy that you manage to quickly destroy, for example, purple aliens with oranges, because it is the strongest shell and the weakest enemy, and the apples left in the arsenal are practically not suitable for the destruction of the dragons or red aliens. In general, here you will have to also think, rather than just throw fruit in all directions.
ResumeThe game has turned out to be pretty interesting and will certainly appeal to fans of the genre. The graphics are designed in cartoon style and performed of a pretty decent quality. The sound is very interesting and will cause you to smile not once.
