Meanwhile, the game has a clean interface with responsive touch controls, and the cartoon style graphics are bright and cheerful. We're especially fond of Om Nom's limited but smooth animation. Bottom line, Cut the Rope is one of the best games for Apple's iOS. Play it immediately.
Like many other puzzle games in this style, each level of Cut the Rope is scored using a three-star rating system. Whereas in some games this is simply a hindrance to progression, in Cut the Rope the rating system is implemented in such a way that I was really motivated to think through puzzles to figure out the best way to earn all three stars. This, combined with gorgeous art and a wonderfully realistic gravity-driven engine, makes Cut the Rope a fine iPhone/iPad release, and one that I wouldn’t be surprised in the least bit if it does in fact become the next Angry Birds.
Slide to Play
Cut the Rope HD is fun, adorable, clever, and enjoyable. Hands down, it's one of the best casual games available for the iPad.
Cut the Rope HD is available on both the iPhone and the iPad, but the larger screen offers a much more accessible interface with the increased playing area making it easier to cut strings and pop bubbles with far greater accuracy. Fun for the entire family, Cut the Rope HD is easily one of the best physics puzzle games I’ve played since Angry Birds. It not only relies on gravity and momentum but also requires thought and timing on the part of the gamer. Don’t miss out on what could be the cutest and most addicting puzzle game on the iPad this year.
Pitched perfectly for casual on-the-move play, it's the kind of game you can happily fill a couple of bored minutes with, or power through for a couple of hours, trying to snag every star. With 100 stages included for starters, and more on the way via updates, welcome to your new favourite waste of time.
Cut the Rope is also straight-up adorable, with an expressive, cartoony art style. For example, as the candy gets close to the monster, he'll open his mouth and start salivating. When you fail a level, he'll get sad and begin crying.
Cut the Rope is a game that brilliantly takes a simple and unique concept, and layers complexity on top of it to make the game deep, without losing what makes it fun.
