HOW TO PLAY?
FRUITEE is an arcade style strategy game, where each player navigates their FRUITEE droid to drop their hungry FRUITEE balls through the fruit orchard to reach home. Points are awarded for eating fruit and navigating the obstacles within the orchard to reach home. The player with the most points per level wins the level. FRUITEE has 9 levels with each level becoming more challenging as the game progresses.
Traps stop the FRUITEE ball in its’ tracks and can be used to block your opponent or give you a delayed bonus score. At the end of the level, when each player has played all their FRUITEE balls a BONUS ROUND is automatically played out. The player with their FRUITEE ball above the trap will gain 70 bonus points plus any of the fruit the FRUITEE ball eats on the way to home.
Tunnels allow a FRUITEE ball to travel randomly from one part of the FRUITEE orchard to another, allowing more fruit to be eaten and more points to be earned.
Arrows change the direction of the FRUITEE ball to travel either left or right. Once an arrow is hit, it is automatically flipped to the opposite direction for the next time the path is played.
Mystery Prizes appear on the higher levels and will randomly reveal themselves to be arrows or fruit. You have to take a chance on the outcome, you might have an arrow sending your FRUITEE into a different direction or you might be eating fruit and scoring lots of points!
FRUITEE features 1 player mode against the TI-99 or 2 player mode against another human opponent. FRUITEE can be played with keyboard and joysticks simultaneously.
