60 million ropes cut at a rate of 42,000 ropes per minute and 20 million pieces of candy fed around the world apparently were not enough. Cut the Rope has been a hit on Android since it launched, spawning Cut the Rope: Experiments and Time Travel, but ZeptoLab has decided that it’s time for a proper sequel.
Cut the Rope 2 is on the way, and if you loved the first few games in the series, this one will be right up your alley . The sequel will “re-imagine the universe of Om Nom with new twists on classic gameplay.” New levels, a new story and new gameplay mechanics are all scheduled to be incorporated into Cut the Rope 2.
Expect to see a worldwide launch sometime this winter, until then you will have to get your fingers ready with one of the earlier Cut the Rope games.
