Seven months. That’s how long it took for ZeptoLab, the game developer behind the uber-successful Cut The Rope series, to bring the highly awaited follow-up to Android devices. That platform envy you’ve been having since August 2011, when the sequel was first made available on iOS devices, will be a thing of the past. You can now download Cut The Rope: Experiments on Google Play Store for $0.98.
The Android version of Cut the Rope: Experiments still features the same adorable Om Nom in the role of the candy-loving little green monster, along with some fresh gameplay elements, such as rope guns, suction cups, and rockets, being thrown into the mix. On top of a whopping 125 new levels that await your time and devotion, there’s a new storyline to keep things interesting.
If you’re not familiar with this physics-based puzzle game, the gameplay of Cut the Rope basically requires you to maneuver a piece of candy to Om Nom’s mouth by tackling a number of obstacles. These can range from cutting ropes, popping bubbles, and tapping air cushions, to manipulating other objects on the screen. And trust us when we say that it’s not as simple as it sounds.
While the often big discrepancy between the iOS and Android release date of apps is worrying as much as it is annoying, some developers don’t seem to have any qualm about releasing games on both platforms simultaneously. Take OMGPOP, with their huge hit Draw Something, for example. Their efforts paid off nicely, Draw Something becoming one of the fastest-downloaded apps in both the Google Play Store and the Apple AppStore, with over 20 million downloads in 5 weeks. We’ll see if the new Cut the Rope: Experiments can challenge that record.
