Spikeyfruit 4 (Durio Kutejensis 4 in Japan, Spikeyfruit IV in PAL regions) is a 2D platformer created and published by Scarce Gaming for the PlayStation 4, Wii U, Xbox One, and AtHome Conduct on November 7th, 2015. It takes place shortly after Spikeyfruit 3D, and is an indirect follow-up to Spikeyfruit 3, which was released 19 years earlier. It is only downloadable.
Spikeyfruit is jumping around, when he suddenly sees an electric, metal mountain off in the distance. Knowing that Centipede is the creator of it, Spikeyfruit runs off towards the construction, and ends up in Rhetorical Glade, a grassy place where enemies aren't very fluent, and rocks and grassy hills litter the area.
Upon reaching the end of Rhetorical Glade and defeating Goldy Moldy, a silhouette of a Spikeyfruit with his left spike ripped out partly hits Spikeyfruit, causing him to fall into Answered Cove.
Upon reaching the false mountain (named Sentence Zone), Spikeyfruit discovers that it was a launch site for Centipede's newest creation, Corona, a giant mechanical monster made of trash and magnetic pull. Spikeyfruit decides to fight the behemoth.
After Corona is defeated, it comes back to life, on battery power, and the mountain dissolves into trash. Corona picks up these pieces and becomes massive. The previously sky-high mountain falls, and Spikeyfruit, Centipede, and Corona fall.
Spikeyfruit wakes up in a hollowed and dark cave, and sees a huge, looming form of Corona arising from the depths. Spikeyfruit notices stalagmites hanging above Corona, and decides to fire at them. As Spikeyfruit fires, the stalagmites destroy the floor, while Corona slightly loses it's space at each hit.
After all the ground is destroyed, Corona jumps, and ends up boosting Spikeyfruit and itself into the sky. Spikeyfruit grabs onto a rocket for shelter, and Corona's legs are torn off as a rocket is put in the place of them. Spikeyfruit must dash into Corona, which would be easy if Corona didn't start an attack a second after the previous one.
After being defeated, Corona dissipates into the atmosphere, and the rocket explodes. Spikeyfruit jumps off the rocket and plummets to Fruitopia. Upon landing, Centipede swears that he'll get Spikeyfruit next time, and phases away.
