If you’ve grown tired of playing Angry Birds, as so many of us have, you might be searching for your next downloadable addiction. Cut the Rope is now available on Google Play (was Android Marketplace) after enjoying huge popularity in the iOS for iPhone.
Cut the Rope
Cut the Rope offers a free version, a full version which costs 62p, and an HD version for £1.24. You can also choose the “Experiments” game, which is the next installment. Experiments features a regular game and an HD version, prices mirroring those of the original.
What Is It?
Cut the Rope is a ridiculously addictive game, much like Angry Birds in its simplicity. The storyline is basic but adorable. In the intro, you answer your front door to find a cardboard box on your porch. Peeking out from the box is Om Nom, a sweet, unidentified little critter who only requires one thing – candy!
Cut the Rope Game Play
Your entire quest in Cut the Rope is to feed Om Nom his candy. Simple, right? Not quite. Om Nom’s candy goodies are suspended at the ends of ropes. In order to feed your new pet, you need to cut the rope at the right time. Cutting the rope is simple enough – you just swipe your finger across the rope to cut it and free the candy.
Obstacles abound, however, and getting Om Nom his candy becomes increasingly difficult. In order to attain the highest scores, you must hit all three stars in each level. This is accomplished by cutting the rope at strategic times. Some ropes appear when your candy moves into their circle, and others have an evil candy-stealing spider at one end. Bubbles are both obstacles and helpers. They carry the candy upward, which can help you hit stars and move the candy throughout the board. However, if you don’t pop the bubbles in time (with a simple tap of your finger), the candy will be carried up, up and away, out of poor Om Nom’s reach.
Should You Try It?
If you like simplistic yet maddeningly addictive cartoon-style games, you will fall in love with Cut the Rope. The Om Nom character is adorable, the music is upbeat without being annoying, and the graphics will remind you of Saturday morning cartoons.
The free version of Cut the Rope lets you test out the first two levels – that’s all it takes to get you addicted!
Who’s Cut the Rope For?
While the content is rated “low maturity,” this game is really for anybody who’s looking for something fun. Cut the Rope is a great way to pass time waiting in line, in between classes or when taking a bus trip. It’s also an excellent way to keep children occupied – the game is simple enough for them to understand immediately, yet challenging enough to keep them entranced for hours. Older players will whip through the demo version in less than half an hour, however, so purchasing is highly recommended.

What’s the bottom line? You want this game. You might not realize it yet, but you do. Like so many games that appear too simple to be engaging, Cut the Rope is wonderfully deceptive. Simple as it is, this one will keep you entertained for hours.
