The Watermelon Game, also known as the Suika Game, is considered one of the hardest physics-based logic-puzzle games based on fruit to originate from Japan. Similar to 2048, it requires the player to merge pairs of identical whole fruits instead of tiles with numbers to create new fruits until they eventually create a watermelon. The game is often referred to as Watermelon Suika. Although this name is a misnomer, since suika means watermelon in Japanese, some fans feel it fits best because it literally means Watermelon Watermelon, which hints at the merge element.
The player drops smiling anthropomorphic blueberries, strawberries, bananas, oranges, apples, pears, cherries, grape clusters, coconut, pineapple and other fruit into a see-through empty paper bag or cardboard box to perform the merges. They might, for example, combine two blueberries to make a strawberry or two oranges to make an apple. That said, the fruit bounces around. If the player ever allows unmatched fruit to pile up and overflow the top of the container, they lose the game.
This version of Watermelon Suika by Momo Games allows the player to use specific fruit by watching ads. It also features intermittent pop-up windows that provide the player with interesting facts about fruit.
