Fruit Salad Shop

As a commuter, I spend at least two hours a day going back and forth from work. This means I'm always on the lookout for a new game to keep me occupied and pass the time. Chimpantech, who just began developing apps, themes, and games for BlackBerry, just released their newest creation, Fruit Salad Shop, a challenging memory game to help boost your brain cells and have fun all at the same time. It relies on your ability to recall different fruit combinations and recipes and is not as easy as it sounds. Think you have what it takes to remember them all? Find out more after the break.

Fruit Salad Shop is a puzzle and memory game that places you as owner of a fruit shop trying to remember the amount and kinds of fruits you need to prepare all the different fruit salad recipes. At the beginning of each level you're shown exactly what fruit and how many of each you'll need. Once you click on the start button you'll have to fill your basket with the exact combination as shown. While there is no time limit, points are awarded based on how fast it takes you to complete the challenge.

Fruit Salad Shop
Players must match each recipe combination, though not necessarily in the same order

Good news is there's a restart button if you're stumped, want a different assortment, or to repeat a level for a higher score. Bad news is, as you progress through all fifty levels the variety of fruits and their number increases. By the end you'll have to remember up to nine different fruits and the resulting recipes will make your head spin. I hate to say it but you might have to grab a pen and paper or worse, take a screen shot to keep up. Users have the option of level mode with 50 levels or infinite mode that's sure to keep your mind sharp.

Fruit Salad Shop Levels
Fruit Salad Shop has fifty levels available; players can go back to increase their speed and score

Memory games have never been my forte (I could never master Simon), but this one is frustrating (in a good way) to the point where you just want to get the combination right no matter how many times you yell at the screen. As of now this game is exclusive to the BlackBerry Torch 9800 and takes full advantage of its size and resolution. You can check it out at BlackBerry App World for $.99.
