It's been a while since I've gone on here... I look at the Project Ideas board and see that Thunderbolt started nine of the last ten topics XD

Fruit Ninja is a port of the famous iPhone game. It's not finished yet, but it's already mostly playable—I just added points and drop counts today.

With so many rotating sprites, it's definitely my heaviest program in terms of graphics. Unfortunately, I'm not really a graphics guy, so those sprites (all 16x16 monochrome, of watermelon, orange, pineapple, strawberry, and bomb) took me a tremendous amount of time. I still need to make 128 more rotating sprites of each of the fruits sliced in half, so if anyone would like to help, please tell me!

Oh dear, good luck with this! I am not all that great with spriting, but if I see something I can do and I have time/drive I'll try to help. It looks really cool, especially with the rotating sprites Shock So do you try to destroy the fruit, but not the bombs?

Yeah those rotating sprites! Very cool. So you hard-coded the sprite rather than a rotating sprite routine. That must be a heavy amount of memory!

Keep it up, great job!

A routine for 3D rotating sprites with decent graphics would have been pretty impossible XD

That's true. Each fruit has eight rotating sprites, each of which is 16x16, or 32 bytes. So far, that's 1,280 bytes, about a third of the entire program size.

Hmm, so at about 3800 bytes... what do you think the final features and game will look like? And do you think it will have size issues? I know Axe Fusion has recently been introduced, so have you thought about going that route?

The main game engine is just about complete, so I don't see the final program being much larger than it is now. I think I might put in two of the three original modesóClassic for sure, and either Zen (easier to add but not as fun to play) or Arcade (harder to implement and probably with much fewer features than the original game).

By the way, I've started working on those sliced sprites, and after watching more videos of the iPhone game (and playing it quite a bit too), I noticed that the sliced fruit sprites don't actually rotate as much as the whole fruits. (That actually makes sense, too, since anything you slice has to stay in the same orientation while you slice it all the way through, which would make a fruit stop rotating). So I've decided that these sprites don't actually need to be animated and rotating, which would make the sprite work a lot easier to finish.
