Addictive physics based puzzler Cut The Rope has been the sole preserve of smug iPhone-wielding types since whenever. But the good news is that the hit game is now available for Android phones and tablets.
For those of you who’ve not jealously eyed your friends as they’ve been playing it on their iPhones, the object of Cut The Rope is to guide a piece of candy into the waiting gob of an inert monster called Om Nom.
You do this by, you’ve guessed it, slashing at a series of ropes that suspend the candy above various traps and obstacles.
Sounds silly and a little pointless? It is, but then so is chucking birds at wood and brick bivoacs. Avoid Cut The Rope at your peril – it’s plenty of fun.
