Annoying Orange: Kitchen Carnage Lite, the free version of the game, was released on March 2, 2012.
The object of the game is to throw various produce items across the kitchen and land them in a series of blenders before time runs out. The player is given apples and bananas to begin the game. When the second level is reached, tomatoes are added, while Level 3 adds cantaloupes, Level 4 pineapples, Level 5 adds strawberries, and Level 6 adds Fred FiggleCorn.At various moments in the game, a player can earn bonus points by tossing a piece of produce onto a cutting board, where Knife will cut them, or into an exhaust fan, and can also earn extra bonus time by throwing a particular fruit into a cabinet.
Unlike the show, the game was well received by critics. Phillip Levin reviewed the iPhone version of the game for 148Apps on April 29, 2011 and gave the game three stars. He said that it was "not a bad game, but not something you’re going to fall in love with, either. Unless, of course, you’re a huge fan of the Annoying Orange character; in which case, we’re sorry." Common Sense Media reviewer Jonathan H. Liu gave it four stars and a rating for ages 13 and up due to its cartoon violence and gore. He stated it worked more "like the Paper Toss app", however, the player is "aiming for blenders, cutting boards, and oven fans."
