It’s a little heavy-handed with some of the in-app purchase suggestions, but Cut the Rope 2 is still quite the delight.

Cut the Rope 2: Om Nom’s Unexpected Adventure gets its first gameplay trailer that takes a closer look at the game and its challenges. The game is set to release with 120 levels throughout new locations that take players to a forest, junkyard, city park, sandy dam, and underground. It’s scheduled to release next week on December 19 for $0.99.

“With Cut the Rope 2, we’ve taken Cut the Rope to the next level, creating a game that not only does justice to the original, but enhances the experience in every possible way,” said Misha Lyalin, ZeptoLab CEO, in a press release. “It’s literally and figuratively a huge leap for Om Nom as he ventures out into the world for the first time.”

Cut the Rope 2 is coming soon and we’re plenty excited for its release. However, there is a problem as Om Nom seems to be missing. We want to make sure to keep you in the know and to pass along any news as we get it. Right now, the only source of information and clues comes from Om Nom’s local newspaper, The Sweet Times. Read it over and see what you can discover!

They always say that during the holidays it is better to give than to receive.  Cut The Rope developer ZeptoLab seems to have taken that to heart.  To show their unwavering dedication and appreciation to the fans they just released update version 1.6 to the App Store classic, entitled “Buzz Box,” completely free of charge.

So over a year after this iOS mainstay debuted it is once again, both literally and figuratively, changing the game.  Here is what you can expect to find in the newest update:

“The award-winning, physics-based puzzler you can’t get enough of introduces Om Nom to a new box filled with 25 exciting levels. The update also introduces a Busy Bee feature with bees that never stop buzzing as they keep moving and stretching the ropes, bringing a challenging new element to the game…”

Just in case you were curious to see how the new “Busy Bee”s will mix things up, check out the trailer below.  For those out there without this installed on every iOS device under the sun, what the heck are you waiting for? We promise that you will not regret it.

Cut The Rope Launches New Comic Series

When an iOS game has over 1.6 million unique users every single day, it is pretty safe to say that it might be successful.  One of the very few apps that can boast that kind of statistic would be the run away success Cut The Rope.  Just trying to wrap my brain around the absurdity of that many players in a single day is nigh impossible, so I don’t even bother trying to comprehend the game’s total download count of over 60 million across the iOS and Android platforms.

So with that many people being invested in the plight of poor little Om Nom, you might have wondered where the little critter came from, what exactly it is, and how it came to love sugary treats.  ZeptoLab decided that the best way to answer this and many more questions was to launch a new comic, explaining his entire origin story.  The series’ companion app just launched yesterday on the App Store, with a completely free first issue.

If the first story strikes your fancy, the rest of the episodes will be available for two dollars.  There will also be a full print run of the comic coming next year, so there is a little bit of something for everyone.  Give the first issue a read and let us know if you like it in the comments.

    Chillingo, a division of Electronic Arts most recognized for its creation of Angry Birds, which sits almost always as the #1 paid application in App Stores across the world, announced today that Cut the Rope will receive a special update for Valentine’s Day, February 14.

    “The new Cut the Rope 1.2 update marks the annual celebration of love and affection with adorable Om Nom as cupid in a special Valentine’s Box filled with 25 gorgeous levels. A romantic and fun, “split-candy” gameplay is also introduced to challenge players as they strive to slice the right ropes to feed the insatiable green creature. Brand new artwork and a distinctive Valentine’s icon make Cut the Rope the perfect gift for your special someone” reads the official release.

    “This 1.2 update is our gift to you this Valentine’s Day for being the greatest fans out there; we hope players love the new box, levels and features just as much as we enjoyed creating it,” states Efim Voinov, CTO of Zeptolab. “Thank you for the continued support, we are already working closely with Chillingo to enhance the game and think fans will be extremely delighted!”

    Such holiday updates are becoming more and more popular, even within Cut the Rope’s own development. In December of last year, 148Apps reviewer Brad Hilderbrand announced the Christmas update of the popular application, which to date has now sold more than six million copies. Conservatively, that means Cut the Rope has generated over $4 million in revenue (after Apple’s 30% commission), not taking into account the price difference between the iPad and iPhone version of the immensely popular game. It stood as the sixth most popular paid-for iPhone game in 2010.

    When 148Apps reviewed the game last year, writer Carter Dotson awarded it 4 stars. “Cut the Rope is ingenious, following a similar formula to Angry Birds – charming graphics, simple gameplay that gets complexity steadily layered on top of it in a way that feels natural, almost without even feeling like it’s getting more difficult” he writes. “That is just brilliant game design, and with more levels promised, Cut the Rope has an exciting future, but is still great with even just the core game content.”

    Available for $0.99 on iPhone and $1.99 for iPad, a free lite version is also available to download, allowing you to try-before-you-buy. A sneak peak video of the update is available below:
