7 Halfbrick Studios Halfbrick Studios Halfbrick Studios is an Australian video game developer based in Brisbane, Australia. They have developed the Fruit Ninja and Jetpack Joyride franchises.

Jetpack Joyride. A game everybody played but didn't care about the maker.
Fruit Ninja. Another popular game that was only focused on because of the game.
HalfBrick Studios get no praise for their games from the fan base, and the only way they know their games are decent is the money.

HalfBrick Studios should get more praise. They make really great games.
