I WANT CANDY!
Cut the Rope combines realistic physics with simple, yet accurate and precise touch controls. Cut the ropes by simply swiping your finger across them and collect the stars by touching them with the candy, but its not always simple. Think before you slice and be sure to avoid the enemies and obstacles. Every level is different and getting that candy to Om Nom wont be easy!

ITS KNOT GONNA BE A BREEZE
In Cut the Rope you dont just need to feed Om Nom, in order to get maximum points you will also need to collect three golden stars in each stage. Some are easy, some are deviously difficult; youre going to have to use your head to get them all-but be quick, some of these stars dont hang around forever! Dodge jagged spikes that smash your candy to bits, and look out for sneaky spiders intent on having Om Noms treat all for themselves!

STAR PLAYER
Use a variety of special tools in your effort to get Om Nom his candy. Blow candy around in bubbles using special air pumps, catapult your candy across the screen to get to those hard to reach stars, use hidden ropes and special pulleys in your effort to get every star there is!

THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX, INSIDE THE BOX
Easy to learn and intuitive to play, Cut the Rope is hard to put down. As you progress, Om Nom will jump from one box to another, with more levels to get through. With each new box contains new and even more challenging stars and obstacles, can you make it to the end?

Crystal Leaderboards and Achievements: Players can see how they compare to rope cutters throughout the world via online leaderboards and achievements through Crystal!
Cut the Rope also supports Game Center.

Bug (by praska)
It is an awesome game. However, 1/3 of the way through level 4.2 on adventure mode it keeps shutting off the whole game. Very Frustrating. As soon as it’s fixed I will give a better review.

Total RIP OFF (by App Man022)
This game is a total rip off!!! You pay $2.99 for the app, which compared to some apps is pretty expensive, and then you only get 6 songs to play!!! After you are tired of those songs you have to pay $1.99 to get predetermined 3 song bundles!!! It’s totally not worth the money
     
Worked … for a day (by William J. Foster)
Payed a lot for a few songs.
Went online for about an hour.
Then exited the game.
Now I can not reconnect.
What did I pay you so much for?

You have always dreamed of flying – but your wings are tiny. Luckily the world is full of beatiful hills. Use the hills as jumps – slide down, flap your wings and fly! At least for a moment – until this annoying gravity brings you back down to earth. But the next hill is waiting for you already. Watch out for the night and fly as fast as you can. Otherwise flying will only be a dream once again.

*** Highlights ***

- simple but skillfull “one button” (ok… maybe “one touch”) arcade game about the dream of flying
- the world is changing every day – so it does in this game! Procedural generated graphics will make “tiny wings” look different every day you play

Amazing! (by PeaceLoveCheese)
This game is on my bottom shelf, so I can ALWAYS ply it without looking for it. I play EVERY day no matter what. Thus game is extremely addicting and clever. I highly suggest that the maker of this app create another one because he has mad SKILLZ!!! Any app that is made by him, I will buy no matter what the price because of the high quality and originality put into this game. Also, I can NOT believe that Tiny Wings is now #2 on the app list! Should totally be #1! it deserves that position! Why is the difference between Angry Birds Rio and the regular one? After the movie is done, Tiny Wings will obviously be on top by then, if not sooner. This app the the BEST one I have!
     
Love it BUT (by Guillermo Morales)
I feel the starting over and over is getting old for me. Maybe make different check points ;) also make a set of new level with a wide rage of options and extras like maybe have a fun mode and a classic mode..in "fun mode" u maybe get big wings for a few moments and fly longer distances or create landing targets where u get bonus sun time.. That’s another thing that dam sun moves to fast lol maybe create a different rare coin that gives us a tine boots to help out. Anyhow love the game and I see so many more great Ideas to come even spin offs :)
