Cut the Rope handily made our list of the Best Kids Apps of 2010, and I’d only been playing it for two minutes when I knew it was going to.
A mysterious package arrives in the mail with the message “Feed with Candy” scrawled on it, and so begins this very original game.
Why we like it:
This is a physics game. A piece of candy is tied up with ropes. You cut them to deliver the candy to your cute, green monster pet. Sound simple? It is. Sort of.
We loved the sound effects, the graphics, and the music right away, but the gameplay is what makes this game special. Kids will have to think hard and experiment with gravity, anti-gravity, velocity, and trajectory to optimize their scores. They won’t realize this though. They’ll just see ropes, candy, bubbles, and spikes.
