Cut The Rope Passes 6m Downloads
Chillingo’s iPhone physics puzzler passes milestone in four months; free Valentine’s Day update incoming.
Cut The Rope, the Zeptolabs-developed iOS physics puzzle game, has been downloaded more than six million times, according to publisher Chillingo.
It passes the milestone just four months after release. It reached the two million mark in a little over three weeks, hitting three million by mid-November. The game tasks players with slicing the titular rope so that attached foodstuffs fall into the waiting, gaping maw of the exquisitely named green monster Om Nom.
Cut The Rope owners will soon be treated to a free, Valentine’s Day-themed update, with 25 themed levels and Om Nom cast as Cupid. Have a look at the trailer here.
Chris Byatte, co-general manager of Chillingo, said: “Chillingo is proud to help make Om Nom one of the most recognized game characters on the iOS platform. We are excited to work closely with talented indie developers, such as Zeptolab, to bring the best games to consumers. We are thrilled to constantly receive wonderful stories about how players adore Cut the Rope.”
Chillingo – who also published Helsing’s Fire and the iOS version of Rovio’s Angry Birds – was acquired by Electronic Arts last October.
