ZeptoLab’s ‘Cut the Rope’ is another shining example of iPhone puzzle gaming, and was riding high at the top of the App Store charts. Always a bit partial to a bit of cerebral action, I didn’t hesitate in paying the paltry 59p.
This YouTube trailer gives a good overview of what’s in store to prospective rope-cutters.
The basic idea is to guide the candy to the little green Om Nom through 100 levels of obstacles. The game features fun graphics, and some of the level design is ingenious. However, I did find some of the levels a little fiddly, and the levels were a little easy to get through, with some easy levels sandwiched between trickier ones.
Overall though, the game is great fun, though not in the same league as the perennial Angry Birds.
