Help the aliens to harvest a variety of fruits from their humongous orchard on their fruit-filled planet in Fruit Planet! Join in the fruit-picking crew to collect the fruits (these fruits are surprisingly normal-looking though) that the aliens need by matching them up in a 3 or more fashion! Each match will award bonuses to their neighboring fruits, allowing you to collect more fruits as you match these special fruits up! The game doesn’t lull you into a sense of repetition by providing you with plenty of challenging obstacles that you’ll have to cleverly circumvent if you want to win the game! If you’ve enjoyed Farm Heroes Saga, you will certainly have a great time playing Fruit Planet! Try it now!
The game starts off with a simple-to-understand tutorial, instructing you on how the game works. More instructions will pop up as you play the game as you encounter new items and obstacles.
To start playing, you just need to know that this is a match-3 game, despite its slightly different gameplay, and it works exactly like a match-3 game. This means that you can swipe the fruits around in a vertical or a horizontal manner in order to match at least 3 of the same fruits together. There are 6 different types of adorable fruits in this game, namely the plums, apples, blueberries, bananas, pears and oranges, by the way. Each match-3 you do will award nearby fruits, which are randomly selected, with a +1 bonus. This means that when you match the bonus fruits up (the fruits must be of the same type), you’ll be able to collect more fruits that way!
If you managed to match 4 of the fruits together, the matched fruits will spawn UFOs that will give out +2 bonuses randomly to nearby fruits. For match-5s, it can be a bit tricky. If you match 5 fruits in an L- or T-shape, nearby fruits will gain whopping +3 bonuses. However, if the 5 fruits are matched in a linear form (either vertical or horizontal), it will spawn a massive UFO... a mothership perhaps... that will collect all the fruits of the same type as the matched fruits on the board in 1 move. How awesome is that?
Unfortunately, these bonuses do not last for long. They will go away after only any subsequent moves you make that do not include them. Thus, if you have bonuses that you can match up, give those matches priority over the other matches on the board. Not to mention, you are also provided with limited moves to complete each level. The gameplay is very much similar to Farm Heroes Saga, thus, players of the above game can settle comfortably in this game.
Fruit Planet contains only 1 level type – that is you have to collect certain amount of specific fruit types with the limited moves you are given. However, if you have any leftover moves after completing the goals provided, the moves will then be used up in a fruit blast which in turn will reward you with bonus score points! Like most match-3 games, you can earn 3 stars per level and you can return to previous levels to replay them in order to gain those 3 stars. Stars are needed for you to move on to the next stage.
The game can get pretty boring after awhile considering that there is only 1 level type in this game. Thus, Fruit Planet provides interesting and unique obstacles to spice everything up and make that brain of yours work off the rust and cobwebs in its cogs! One example for the many obstacles in the game includes fences. You cannot swap fruits over fences on the board, meaning you cannot swap the fruits inside the fences with any fruits outside, though you could swap fruits within the fenced enclosure. You can also perform matches with the fruits blocked by the fences as the fences only block movement and not matching. As throublesome as these fences may be, there is no way to get rid of these fences. You will just have to find creative ways to get around them!
If you cannot solve a level, you will lose a life. You start off with a maximum of 5 lives and these lives will regenerate themselves over time. However, if you prefer not to wait, you can always spend real money to buy more. There’s another free way to gain more lives though -that is by asking your friends for lives.
To avoid losing too many lives than necessary, you can purchase special boosters to help you out! There is a ray gun that allows you to collect a fruit, grow a seed or a shrub in a pot, while the claw allows you to swap 2 fruits over a fence. The claw also allows you to swap fruits that cannot be swapped in the first place as well! The game is generous enough to supply you with some free boosters, but you may want to save those up for “emergencies”.
With more than half a million of likes on its Facebook fan page, Fruit Planet is indeed a very popular match-3 game! The community in Fruit Planet is very friendly and is happy to help each other. Thus, they would be willing to add you as friend just so you could gift each other lives. The developers are very active as well and they keep churning out new episodes of the game to the delight of the fans of the game.
The graphics in this game is above average for a match-3 game. Fruit Planet contains plenty of adorable fruits with big beady eyes as well as a beautiful and cheery background that will definitely brighten up your day. In terms of music, Fruit Planet provides a variety of mixes of the “theme music” of the game. The theme music is a very layback-type of music that consists of mainly whistling. It is soothing in some way and yet annoying in other way. If you find it too annoying, well, you could always switch it off whenever you like.
In conclusion, Fruit Planet is a fun-filled and addictive match-3 game that mimics the gameplay of the highly popular Farm Heroes Saga. The game starts off easy-peasy, but as you play, you will be hard-pressed to earn 3 stars for every level you complete due to the variety of unique obstacles presented as well as the limited number of moves you are given! If you have any difficulty in solving any of the puzzles, the game offers a huge range of boosters that may help you proceed to the next level, such as ray guns and the claws. So, put on your farmer hat and make sure it’s snug behind the ears – it’s time to help the aliens to harvest a variety of fruits from their humongous orchard in Fruit Planet!
