it looks good, but its just not that responsive when you swipe your finger over the screen. I'm sure there are some better similar games out there.

1.0 out of 5 stars This poorly made Fruit Ninja clone with dangerous permissions seems like an unfinished "Introduction to Android" assignment. 26 Oct 2012
By Samuel Mitchell - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Slashing Pumpkins is yet another poorly made Fruit Ninja clone, but this time it's Halloween themed and looks to be created for the sole purpose of cashing in on the "holiday".

The object of this so called game is to endlessly slash pumpkins and other "spooky" objects that are thrown at you, while avoiding bombs. That's all there is to it. There is no menu, no options, and no exit button. This really was thrown together in a few minutes using publicly available images and sound files.

Other than the (mostly stolen) graphics, I see nothing decent about this app.

The Good:

- OK graphics. The background and some of the pumpkins really do look cool. Too bad most of them seem to be the hard work of other people.

The Bad:

- Five star review from a user that gave a similar rating to another iPREPpress LLC product.

- Lame sound effects. It is the same three sounds over and over again. The slashing (when you miss), impact (when you hit something), and boom (when the bomb explodes) sound.

- Boring gameplay. If you played the game for 30 seconds, you already saw everything that it has to offer.

- Bad controls and detection. Slicing an object doesn't always register properly, or the slice is way off. Not good in a game that only has one interaction.

- Countless other issues, but I don't want to go off on one of my three page "rants".

The Ugly:

- Incredibly dangerous Permissions (explained below):

-- Read only access to phone state - This permission gives an application access to the IMEI, IMSI, and your phone number (as well as incoming and outgoing calls). So think of it as a massive tracking cookie that keeps tabs on everything you do, and that you had no choice in installing.
Many software developers use this permission to track purchases and piracy. However the potential for disaster is huge here. A lot of companies will pay good money to get the information above, and once that falls into their hands...

-- Open network sockets - This permission gives an application free range Internet access.

-- Access information about networks - This permissions "informs" the device on what kind of networks you are running.

I have NO idea why all these permissions are required in a single player game! There are no ads, no reason to connect to the internet, NOTHING in this game should require the permissions that are included with it.

Scores:
Game - 1/5
Permissions - 1/5
Combined - 1/5

Conclusion:
This game is pure garbage and is a waste of Amazon's great FAOTD program. Honestly both Amazon and iPREPpress LLC should be ashamed for having the audacity to sell this half baked piece of junk.
Slashing Pumpkins is NOT worth the free download, and certainly not worth the $.99 asking price.

2.0 out of 5 stars Fruit Ninja done poorly 26 Oct 2012
By Stoneysilence - Published on Amazon.com

It's pumpkins instead of fruit, it's poorly done instead of well done, it's uninstalled instead of installed. It's not worth your time.

1.0 out of 5 stars Slashing Pumpkins Review 26 Oct 2012
By King Coolz - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This game is very similar to "Fruit ninja" but the graphic are very crappy. There a bug were you can't cut the pumpkin when bomb is near. I like how your trying to make a halloween game but please put more effort into a game before realesing it.

1.0 out of 5 stars An App That Definitely Deserves 0 Stars As a Paid App Since It Is a "Bare Bones" App 26 Oct 2012
By WASH ST. GAMER - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I want to disclose that I got this as the Free App of the Day from Amazon today.

The app is so bad for a paid app, I don't know where to even begin!

My main problem is that they are charging for this. This game DOES work, but it LACKS EVERYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD EXPECT IN A PAID APP!

There are NO menus, instructions, options, credits, high score lists, etc. This just feels like a type-in game from an old 1980's computer magazine like Compute where only the bare bones game was offered with little or no extra features to make it simpler to type in. The main reason people typed these games in from those old computer magazines was because computer games were priced like $30 for a single game back then and this was a very cheap legal alternative as opposed to making illegal copies of commercial software.

There appears to be no difficulty levels so it becomes dull and boring very quickly.

This is an app where the developer SHOULD PAY US to play it for testing since it is incomplete. Therefore I would give this 0 stars as a paid app and maybe 1 or 2 stars if it were free like it should have been.

By the way, I lied about the lack of options. There is actually a pause feature. It happens when you sit there leaving this app running without doing anything since there is no penalties in this game for not doing anything! That is how bad this app really is!

3.0 out of 5 stars Cute but has issues 26 Oct 2012
By Neh - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The game is very cute. But very laggy and jumpy. It's an easy paced fruit ninja game for the young kids. pumpkins are cute and scary, eyeballs are strange. Wasn't sure if they were ok to slash at first. There are no options to turn the sounds off our down, had to mute the device :( the developers didnt put much thought or time into this app, would not be happy if I had paid for it, but it's good for faotd. if the develops fix the lag and add options for settings, I will change the review.
The first 2 five star reviews are obviously from the developers.
