Many times, video game edibles catch peoples’ attention; one of them is Wumpa fruit, which looks just like a tropical fruit.
Let us find out what exactly is this exotic fruit and what it does.
What is a Wumpa Fruit?
Old gamers would know about Crash Bandicoot because this video game was very popular in the 90s and 2000s.
One of the recent sightings within the game is Wumpa fruit, which Crash Bandicoot (the main character) must collect.
As a matter of fact, Wumpa fruit is not real and is only based on the appearance and nutrition of natural fruit.
Like natural fruits, the in-game fruit serves vital functions in the game.
- Increase Health: Eating the fruit replenishes Crash Bandicoot’s health to help them continue fighting with the enemies and take damage.
- Earn Extra Lives: Collecting 100 fruits accounts for earning one extra life, just like earning 100 coins would get Mario one.
- Earn Power-Ups: Collecting a specific number of fruits can activate special abilities for Crash.
How to Identify Wumpa Fruit?
At first, the semi-circular appearance makes it look like an apple. But a closer inspection will reveal it is more of a mango.
However, the fruit has purple insides, which do not resemble either mango or apple.
A Redditor recently posted a real-life Wumpa fruit, which happens to be an orange.
Nonetheless, the fruit’s purpose remains similar to its real-life counterparts: to boost nutrition and the number of calories (health and score) and increase immunity (defense against enemies).
From Editorial Team
Although a video game, eating the Wumpa fruits’ highlights the importance of consuming fruits regularly.
