Let's Talk About Fruit
The fruit is officially on the way.
I know because I’ve seen it. In fact, I’ve even edited a few of the image files. More than that, Aaron and I did all the work coming up with the new levels and the names for the new levels and which “fruit” goes with what level, and did you notice how I put fruit in quotation marks just then?
There are only so many fruits. And, just like we did last time here, most of the upper levels are not fruits. In fact, on Old-School Tanga, only the first nine levels were fruits. Well, ten, if you count the Jack-O-Lantern as a pumpkin. But level eleven on up was Rocket, Bell, Trumpet, Key, Castle, Wizard’s Hat, Meeple.
Nine fruits. Ten on Halloween.
New Tanga..? FIFTEEN fruits!
Most of you won’t be getting any of them.
Because you’ve got to start out as Cherries. That’s a given. And it only makes sense to move from there to Lemon. And then to the next fruit. And then the next. And of course, there’s that excitement as you work your way through the fruit of knowing that someday, eventually, when you’ve finally earned enough Tanga Points, you’ll reach that level where you move beyond the fruit and get your very first different-looking icon – Woo-hoo! I made it! Awesome!
A lot of you are there already.
If you’ve recently made a comment here on Tanga which included the all-caps phrase BRING BACK THE FRUIT, you’re likely gonna by-pass most of the fruit. Heck, if you simply remember when we used to have fruit, then you’ve been here long enough to have probably earned enough Tanga Points to by-pass most of the new fruit.
The bulk of our new fruit is for levels under 10,000 TP. That doesn’t mean we don’t have cool stuff for the levels over 10K. And there might be some fruit still available at those higher levels…
But I just wanted to prepare you.
