Om Nom, your favorite green monster is now back on your screens and is still hungry for more candy. Developer Zeptolab has launched ‘Cut the Rope 2’ for iPhone and iPad gamers, as a sequel to their popular game.
Currently, Cut the Rope 2 has been launched exclusively only for iOS users. As is usual with top titles on smartphones, Android gamers will have to wait till “early next year” to get their hands on Cut the Rope 2.
“The sequel to the physics-based phenomenon takes Om Nom out of the box and into the world for the first time, introducing five new locations and characters, each with unique game mechanics that help Om Nom in his pursuit of candy,” said ZeptoLab in a statement. “The new characters interact with Om Nom and their surroundings, creating a totally new experience for Cut the Rope.”
Although the core gameplay remains the same, this time there are a few new characters launched in the latest update who will help Om Nom to collect his candy. According to the iTunes description, these newly launched characters have the following capabilities:
- 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
ZeptoLab CEO Misha Lyalin was pretty upbeat about the launch and said in a statement that
“This is the first true sequel to Cut the Rope. We’ve shaken up the formula and really wanted to push the envelope on what today’s mobile platforms can offer. The new gameplay elements, design and graphics will thrill Cut the Rope fans and attract a new generation of players.”
