With incredibly cute illustrations and a suspenseful storyline, a strawberry speedily whisks across counter tops, earning extra points upon collecting yummy blueberries. As time passes, the difficulty increases.
In another 2D game, the same superstar character-a strawberry with a dashing smile-rides a Booster Juice cup like a rocket, fruits firing out instead flames. He flies through the skies avoiding evil candy, collecting tasty fruit and racking up the points.
The third game unravels a darker, more riveting plot involving the destiny of the strawberry.

In these vibrantly drawn worlds, players must use a variety of skills to survive and gain points.
Additional games were also designed to challenge your mind. These puzzles are formulated to make you think as you match fruit and test your reflexes. Certainly the game play experience is enhanced while sipping one of Booster Juice's delicious smoothies.
