It was only a few days that reports began surfacing about a new game titled ‘Cut the Rope: Experiments,’ which as you can guess is a sequel to ZeptoLab’s hugely popular and awarding-winning ‘Cut the Rope’ game. Now we have just discovered that the new game — which costs just £0.69 to download – has already arrived at the Apple App Store.
According to a recent article by Damon Brown over at pocketgamer.co.uk, the ‘Cut the Rope: Experiments’ game takes the original game’s addictive formula, and adds a few more interesting features. For those of you that never played the first ‘Cut the Rope’ game, it focuses on a little green monster named Om Nom, who likes to eat a lot of candy.
The aim of the game is to get all the pieces of candy, which are attached to various lengths of rope (and other objects later in the game), into Om Nom’s mouth. Players can do this by sliding their finger strategically across the rope to cut it and swing the candy into the mouth of Om Nom. In order to master a level, players must catch the 3 stars with the candy.
‘Cut the Rope: Experiments’ sees Om Nom — who is still in the very same cardboard box he was in during the original game — dropped off at the home of a Professor, who’s keen to conduct experiments on the little green monster. The game’s 75 levels are packed with even more machines and contraptions than its predecessor.
The first 25 levels come with the traditional tension wires, which when they are cut make the candy fly, and the bubbles that make the candy float, but a few new items have been added to give the puzzles more complexity. For example, platforms will act like trampolines, enabling players to bounce the candy in a different direction.
If on the other hand you touch the Whoopee cushion-like puffers, a blast of air will push the candy along. One of the better items in the ‘Cut the Rope: Experiments’ game has to be the rope shooter, which fires a wire with a plunger attached to the end of it at the candy. This of course makes it stick to the candy like a suction cup.
Although the original game had its timed puzzles (particularly in the later levels), speed is of the essence in Cut the Rope: Experiments. Not only will insects jump on the rope and run down it to gobble up the candy, certain stars will have specific time limits. If players aren’t quick enough and the timer goes down, the star will unfortunately disappear.
