Cut the Rope 2 Hits Google Play, Help Om Nom Through New Worlds (Updated)

Cut_the_Rope_2_Official_Game_Trailer_-_YouTube

It seems weird that Cut the Rope 2 is just now launching onto Android, as there have been a few Cut the Rope titles released in between this one and the first one years ago. How they decided to do that, I don’t know, but it has finally arrived on Google Play. 

In Cut the Rope 2, Om Nom is back – freakin’ sweet. There are also new characters to help you progress through a completely different world, complete with tons of new levels. According to the app’s description, Om Nom has escaped his box, forced to find his candy among bustling cities, deep woods, as well as junkyards. We wouldn’t recommend eating candy found at the junkyard, Om Nom, but maybe your cuteness will kill the bacteria that lives on it.

According to reviews of the game so far, it appears that the developers have implemented some type of energy/time bar. If you run out of energy/time, you can’t play until you get more. Reviewers state it’s like Candy Crush, and if that’s true, we have a bad feeling about this game. Since the game is unavailable here, we can’t confirm this quite yet.

For now, it appears that the game is unavailable for folks in most regions, but you can start refreshing the Google Play link to grab it as soon as its available.

Update: The game is now live. Let us know what you think.

    They’ve definitely succeeded in bastardizing my favorite game.

    The problem with IAPs is there are RIDICULOUSLY expensive. $50 to unlock all cut the rope IAPs? Are you on CRACK? Mobile games are worth $0.99-$4.99 for the most part.. some worth up to 10 but that’s for a full fledged experience, not something you play on the crapper. IAPs should be like $.10 or $.20 to ‘continue’ playing

    • EvanTheGamer

      The way I figure it is, some people ONLY play mobile games, or only certain casual games, like Cut the Rope 2. So if there’s a TON of levels, then paying $50 for 100,000 Candy Coins, that’s quite a lot of Sun you can purchase, which means your candy-eating adventure will never halt, at least for quite a long time or until you’ve used up all your Candy Coins.

      But still, that’s a lot of money. I wouldn’t do it myself, but I’m sure there are others out there who absolutely would.

    As suspected, there’s a little Sun meter thingy in the upper right-hand corner that counts down from 60 or something every time you complete a level. I imagine once it hits zero, you have to wait until it recharges before you can play another level. And there are tons of IAP. Blah!

    Also, there are video advertisements after every so many levels completed. Double blah! Gameplay is still just as fun as the previous Cut the Rope, so that’s a plus.

    Can you beat the system as easily as you could in Candy Crush by just setting your phone’s time ahead?

    • Big_EZ

      Not sure if that works, but yes there is a way. I also used this method on Candy Crush (for my wife) and it’s easier and faster than constantly changing the time.

        How have you done that?

        • Big_EZ

          I used an app called Game Killer. It isn’t in the Play Store anymore. You can use it for most games/apps, but if you use it to cheat (other than to avoid waiting for lives) then it sucks the fun out of the game. I started using this once games started having IAP to get you to pay for a few measly lives or wait 30 minutes to a day to play again.

    As suspected, there’s a little Sun meter thingy in the upper right-hand corner that counts down from 55 or something every time you complete a level. I imagine once it hits zero, you have to wait until it recharges before you can play another level. Blah!

    So, yeah, there’s definitely some type of energy bar. 60 trys before you have to buy more with in-game coins or you can watch an ad it looks like. Kinda weak. I’d rather pay $3 and never see ads or IAPs. Bad on you, Om Nom.

    • Big_EZ

      I’d love to see two versions of most games. One could be freemium/ad supported for the cheapos and to try it out. Then a paid version without all that garbage.

      • EvanTheGamer

        I freaking wish! That would be awesome. I would LOVE to see game developers go back to the way things were before, without all the lame IAP and downloadable content. Back in the day, when we paid full price for a game, we got exactly what we paid for without the worry of having to fork over more cash to get the extras.

        But sadly, most devs are greedy now and they probably figure that, hey…if people are willing to pay for extra content, then why stop? Why not continue to go with that model? That’s the god awful truth. :(

        • Big_EZ

          This is exactly why I don’tuse many of their apps. When I do, I hack them and get what ever I need without paying anything. I would much prefer to just pay a $1 or 2 and not cheat the devs, but I feel like they are trying to cheat me so my conscience is clean.

            How in the hell…lmao. Wow. That’s uhh…a lot of Sun! But maybe you could use just one more. lol

          • Big_EZ

            Game Killer apk. I use it for extra lives for games with IAP. You can use it for all kinds of things, but it defeats the purpose of playing, and isn’t fun if you use it for unlimited health, changing your score, etc.

        • KleenDroid

          I play a lot of Clash Of Clans and I have spent $20 on gems. I can guarantee you many spend hundreds of dollars. It is a test of patience waiting for your stuff to finish the upgrade process.

          I wish nothing more than to be the Dev of a game like that. I would be a gazillionaire.

  • Will P

    Doesn’t seem that bad. Except for the video ads. Those are literally the worst.

  • gambit07

    Played for a bit, haven’t seen any time bar yet, but other reviews say something is there to limit your time.

    • EvanTheGamer

      It’s that Sun dealio in the upper right-hand corner. It’s just an energy bar, not really a timer. Still pretty lame though.

      Stupid Candy Crush Saga, they like to ruin everything!

      I admit, I use to play the game quite a bit, but not really that much anymore.

      • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        Ran out of money?

        • EvanTheGamer

          Yes, actually. I’m commenting on this post from a cardboard box in some alley in some city. It smells really bad around these parts.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    “According to reviews of the game so far, it appears that the developers have implemented some type of energy/time bar. If you run out of energy/time, you can’t play until you get more.”

    Please don’t tell me they’re doing the “free-to-play” nonsense.

    • EvanTheGamer

      Yes, they unfortunately went in that direction.

      ‘Em bastards!

    • EvanTheGamer

      Whoops…sorry for the screenshot duplicate.

      Disqus really needs to fix their blasted commenting system.

      • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        Blasted? Either British or West Indian.

        • EvanTheGamer

          I wish I was British or West Indian or a mixture of both.

          But no, I’m just a green Alien living in another part of the world, and by world, I don’t mean Earth but Titan, which is like Earth, but with worse weather. Also, the air is toxic to humans. You must be a green Alien in order to live here.

          Luckily there’s free wifi though or I’d be bored out of my skull. It’s pretty lonely here as I’m the only one of my kind.

  • gpburdell

    A time bar? Geez. I just want to give you money once and be done with it.

  • EvanTheGamer

    Looks like Cut the Rope 2 is available for me, so downloading now and will confirm the “Energy Time/Bar” non-sense in a sec.
