Fruit Nibblers opens with players fish like character landing on a colourful new island that is just begging to be explored with a beach of sand and beautiful blue water before them. Contained within this island is a range of delicious fruits but also a number of evil lizards who see you as nothing more than a tasty snack for themselves.

While this setting has little impact on actual gameplay it’s still an enjoyable setup and provides that understanding of why you’ll be matching for hundreds of levels. Within each level your objective is to fend off these lizards while matching fruit of various types to achieve high scores and ultimately advance onto the next challenge. Each individual level sets you up with a limited number of turns and a set number of lizards which need to be cleared from the game board within the available moves to ensure your success.

In order to do so you’ll need to make matches of the fruit tiles next to each lizard which requires some forethought and strategy. One match will stun the lizard in place while another will wipe them from the game board completely requiring multiple well placed matches. This simple concept is quickly compounded in difficulty though with the likes of obstacles, moving lizards and even the odd boss battle to introduce variety to the core of Fruit Nibblers gameplay.

Your tools also quickly grow though as well to ensure a fair challenge and also boost variety even further. This list of tools includes the ability to match 4 fruits to create a Coral Nibbler who can clear an entire line of fruits and lizards, the Octo Nibbler for matching 5 fruits who can clear three lines at a time and finally the Bitelines for a cross section 5 match which attacks in all 4 directions and the deadliest tool you have.

Mixing these together quickly becomes important as difficultly is finely tuned to require careful use of your limited game moves for success. With all these elements combined with the colourful and vibrant graphics you’ll find Fruit Nibblers to be one of the higher quality in the match three puzzle genre.
