Fruit Fall is a keyboard-controlled, tile matching puzzle game for up to four players.
The player is presented with a game area in the form of an irregular walled maze. Within the maze are pieces of fruit, the object of the game being to get three pieces of the same fruit touching each other at which point they vanish and the player scores points. The only controls the player has are action keys which rotate the game area clockwise or counterclockwise.
The game has three game worlds: a ghoulish ghost world, an underwater lost city, and deep space - each with twenty-five levels. There are three modes of play:
Single Player Arcade mode: Playing one stage at a time where each stage contains five levels. The aim is to complete each level within the time limit to advance to the next level. Points are awarded for completing the levels quickly, and bonuses can be won for clearing multiple fruit types in one move.
Single Player Tight Turn Mode: Here the aim is to complete each level within the allotted number of moves.
Multiplayer: Where up to four players compete against each other by playing in a split-screen game
