Any way you slice it, Fruit Ninja is one of the most popular mobile games of all time. It's built around such an unassuming foundation that it lends itself perfectly to those lulls in life when you don't really want to think ...
Ah, the holiday season. That awkward time of year when you're expected to be in the same room as your extended family, talking to your great aunt that you barely remember about how no, you're not in school anymore; you gradua...
A ratings board listing has outed the existence of Fruit Ninja Kinect 2. You cool with that? Fruit Ninja was one of the rare titles for Xbox 360 that made decent use of the motion-sensing device, so it makes sense that the ne...
Halfbrick has been around basically since the beginning of the revolution of the mobile market. With Fruit Ninja and Jetpack Joyride, it cemented its status as a respected developer, and even dabbled in the console aren...


Say what you will about mobile games in general, but a whole heap of developers are doing the platform right. One of the good guys is Halfbrick, who has contiuously updated Jetpack Joyride for nearly three years now with...
Last week, Halfbrick announced their latest game for iOS devices, Bears vs. Art, setting up a bunch of (adorable) exposition about a bear and the art museum which has infringed upon his territory but barely offered anything ...
I hope you have some insulin handy because this trailer introducing Halfbrick's new game, Bear vs. Art, is sweeter than strawberry sundae topped with candy-coated gumdrops. I have watched it four times and still giggle at ho...
In the modern era of videogames that tends to take itself seriously a bit too often, I occasionally enjoy kicking back with ridiculous, over-the-top games. Games that remind me of the '90s -- where teenage turtles and Super S...
Halfbrick has announced the release date of their newest mobile game -- Colossatron: Massive World Threat. It'll hit both iOS and Android marketplaces on December 19th, and will be a universal app for the former. Halfbrick i...
Halfbrick, makers of hits such as Fruit Ninja, Jetpack Joyride, and more, have just announced Colossatron: Massive World Threat. The game sees you taking control of a giant robot snake alien thing and your goal is simple: BL...
Not all videogames have the same goal. Some seek to challenge the player, others, to relax them. Halfbrick usually resides somewhere comfortably in the middle, with easy-to-pick-up titles like Fruit Ninja and Jetpack Joyride ...
Halfbrick, makers of hits such as Fruit Ninja, Jetpack Joyride, and many more, are set to release Fish Out Of Water this week on April 18 for iOS devices as a universal app. Their latest title sees you flicking an assortment...
Halfbrick had us flinging fish with their newest title, debuted here at GDC. Fish Out of Water has you pulling up fish straight out of the ocean with your fingertip, flinging them, and watching them go the distance as they s...

Odds are if you have a mobile device, you've heard of Fruit Ninja. It's pretty much perpetually in the top fifty rankings, and it even had an Xbox 360 release. The simple concept of slicing fruit with your fingers has been co...
Halfbrick isn't satisfied with the 35 million mobile downloads they've got for Jetpack Joyride so far, so they're adding the game to the PlayStation Network this week.  This one-button wonder comes to PSN for the low pr...
Android owners can finally play one of the most enjoyable mobile games ever with the arrival of Halfbrick's Jetpack Joyride. Best of all, it's free! You can download the game either through Google Play or the Amazon App Store. You really have no excuse here. We gave Jetpack Joyride a 9 out of 10 in our review last year. And did I mention it's free? Because it's free. FREE!
The insanely successful mobile game Jetpack Joyride (formerly known as Machinegun Jetpack) has hit Facebook. Right now it's in "beta", but from what I can tell, this version is essentially the entire game. For the uninitiated...
One of the staple "go-to" games in the Carter household is Fruit Ninja Kinect -- it seems as if I'm not alone, as Halfbrick's Phil Larsen has just announced that the game has topped one million downloads (that's not even incl...
We met with Halfbrick's Phil Larsen yesterday here at GDC to eat all of his candy and steal all of his beers in his hotel suite. During this invasion he showed off a bit of Jetpack Joyride's upcoming update, which will intro...
Gaming animals are rare, so we should treasure them. Especially on slow news days.  "Cat playing Fruit Ninja" is Mack1094's first YouTube video, and it's already nearing 49,000 views. His adorable kitty is a pro at Frui...
Jetpack Joyride is free for a limited time right for the iPod, iPhone and iPad! The runner style game sees you avoiding obstacles and collecting coins through the use of a jetpack that happens to be a freaking chain gun. Seriously, Jetpack Joyride is stupidly addictive and you're a horrible stupid face if you don't even try the game. You jerks.
I love Halfbrick. They're good guys that make good games. Fruit Ninja is one of those games that everyone loves. I mean, how could you not love karate chopping flying fruit?  You also love free stuff, right? Fruit Ninja ...
I still remember Halfbrick when they were just a tiny little Aussie studio with an obscure game about skeletons. Nowadays, these guys are mobile powerhouses, with Fruit Ninja being one of the most recognized games on the mark...
Microsoft has announced that a new limited-edition Kinect Holiday Bundle, priced at $149.99, is on the way. It's actually worth considering, if the games included -- The Gunstringer, Fruit Ninja Kinect, and Kinect Adventures ...
In case you haven't had a chance to check out how fantastic Jetpack Joyride is, you can now get it for free through the AppStore Facebook page. Just go there, Like it, click the giant "Get App Now" thing (or do that here if y...

Man, there's just something about Fruit Ninja. Even the most jaded, weathered, hard core gamer can still find some time for this casual delight. Everyone loves this chart-topping Halfbrick mobile title! You're a cranky piece ...
Halfbrick's much-loved iOS title Jetpack Joyride has reached 350,000 downloads in its first week, proving once again that the studio seems to have a handle on this whole App Store business. Alongside this news of success come...
Halfbrick isn't kidding around with downloadable content for Fruit Ninja Kinect. It's now released the second content pack, "Space Capsule," which is available for 160 MS Points. The pack adds a new star chart backdrop, a "St...
Good evening, Destuctikids! As it's a Friday, we shot today's Destructoid Show in front of a LIVE internet audience. In case you missed it, here it is. Today, in addition to giving away some Assassin's Creed Revelations...
With so many "runner" games on iOS, another one is certainly a hard sell. But there's a reason these games are so popular. It's a simple concept -- a character moves continuously from left to right at an ever-increasing speed...
So I think pretty much everyone missed this, but Fruit Ninja Kinect is getting some Halo content soon. At HaloFest, there was one lone Fruit Ninja Kinect kiosk which I originally skipped because, well, it was Fruit Ninja. Do...
The last time I saw Halbrick's Jetpack Joyride it was called Machine Gun Jetpack. That was back in March, when the Australian developer had brought out an early version of the iOS game to show us at GDC.  Months la...
While Mojang attempts to hold on to the name of Scrolls, fellow indie developer Halfbrick is changing the name of their upcoming iOS game Machine Gun Jetpack. From now on, the game will be called Jetpack Joyride. As explaine...
Developer Halfbrick has just released a new developer diary that details how they decided to make Machine Gun Jetpack more interesting: Vehicles.  Weird, weird vehicles.  My favorite of the bunch has got to be the ...
In theory, translating Halfbrick's popular fruit-slicing mobile title to Kinect is a remarkable idea. It's hard not to buy into the idea of one-to-one karate chopping of juicy produce in your living room. Fortunately, in practice, Fruit Ninja Kinect works and plays just as well as you'd hope.
Not a group to rest on their Fruit Ninja laurels, Brisbane-based studio Halfbrick is launching a series of developer diaries leading up to their next game, Machine Gun Jetpack. The game is set to release for iOS and sees t...
Fruit Ninja's a great game, for sure. But it's always felt a bit empty to me. Mostly because it was missing a key fruit, the pomegranate. No more -- developer Halbrick has updated the iOS versions of Fruit Ninja (including Fr...
