Get Ready to Fall in Love with Om Nom
This puzzle game enjoyed the coveted placement in the top 10 of all paid iPad apps in the iTunes Store for many months when it was launched back in October of 2010 -- and for good reason. It has a simple premise (cut ropes anchoring a piece of candy to send it flying), an adorable main character (Om Nom, a candy junkie, to whom you direct the candy) and its solutions require out-of-the-box thinking.
How to Play
In each puzzle, you use your finger to cut ropes to make the candy fall into Om Nom's mouth and hopefully collect bonus stars along the way. With over 100 puzzles this is a game that all ages can enjoy.
What Makes It Good?
The hundreds of puzzle levels vary greatly and yet all are accessible. Players will experiment to figure out how the game's physics work and how exactly to manipulate each puzzle level so that Om Nom gets his much-anticipated candy.
Cut the Rope HD is a great puzzle app for all ages. The adorable alien makes kids want to play, and don't be surprised to discover that adults love him too.
