Cut the Rope 2, the highly anticipated sequel to the famous Android and iOS game Cut the Rope has finally hit the Play Store.
Cut the Rope is a physics based puzzler where you have to, well, cut the ropes to get a piece of candy in to the mouth of the most adorable green monster in video games ever. While doing so you need to collect stars to unlock new levels. The original game was an instant hit on both the platforms with people falling in love with the game instantly. The game even had quite a few little standalone expansions of sort. This is however the first full-fledged sequel.
The sequel does bring a lot of new additions to the game, some good while some are bad. For instance, there are a lot more places for Om Nom to explore, from lush forests which look absolutely gorgeous to Cities and even junkyards; you get to guide Om Nom as he tries to recover his beloved Candies. This time around however, Om Nom is joined by various new friends who help him in getting his candies back from the spiders who stole them.
- • Roto can carry Om Nom to the best candy catching locations
- • Lick can make small bridges with his tongue to help Om Nom reach his goal
- • Blue can lift Om Nom to new levels of candy hunting fun
- • Toss can throw objects, including candy
- • Boo can scare Om Nom to jump to new heights
The most glaring change is the introduction of an energy system. So if you fail a level or restart a level you lose energy and when you lose your entire reserve, you either have to wait for it to refill over time or buy it with coins, which you earn. And if you run out of coins, you get to buy them thanks to in app purchases. There are no free versions where the levels up to which you can play is limited, but rather the app is free to download with support for in-app purchases. The game does have a little screen popping up at the beginning warning parents of in-app purchases, but I would rather have them release a demo and a fully functional game that needs to be bought.
