Get Into the Giving Mood with Cut the Rope: Holiday Gift – iPad App Review

It doesn’t matter whether you are a true fan of the classic Cut the Rope game or a complete newcomer (which would be especially surprising given that it has received over 250 million downloads worldwide), Cut the Rope: Holiday Gift will serve as a tool to help get you in the mood to celebrate!

The premise of the game remain the same as always: swipe your finger such that you cut the ropes and feed Om Nom candy (all while avoiding spiders, spikes and other obstacles).

As you progress through the various levels, the puzzles become harder and harder to solve. Of course the difficulty is in direct proportion to the addiction level so it becomes impossible to put this title down once you get started.

Like the other titles in the Cut the Rope series, this one has very whimsical and fun graphics and a soundtrack that is sure to become part of the tunes you hum because you can’t get them out of your head (no matter how hard you try).

An in-game tutorial helps get you through the initial levels as you get used to the puzzle solving

What I liked: I have always enjoyed the fast pace of Cut the Rope and very much appreciate how easy it is to get started playing without a huge learning curve (though higher levels certainly can be very challenging).

What I didn’t like: The price tag on this app is a little bit confusing. Your initial download of the app is free but there are regular ads in-game that try to encourage you to make purchases.

To buy or not to buy: Holiday-themed apps are fun, festive and really do serve to motivate toward celebration at this time of year, making Cut the Rope: Holiday Gift a fantastic download!
