ZeptoLab is a famous mobile game development studio thanks to its casual arcade series Cut the Rope and its many spinoffs. The last monumental release from the company was CATS: Crash Arena Turbo Stars, though it would appear that the developer is going back to its roots with a new testing release titled Om Nom: Merge, though we're not too sure exactly where it's being tested other than in Brazil. This means the majority of Android users will not be able to play just yet. The game appears to offer a twist on the classic 2048 formula, where you'll combine Om Noms to create new characters for the purpose of eating fruit so that you can earn in-game currency.
It feels as though it has been a while since we have seen a new release from the Cut the Rope developer ZeptoLab. Well, today there is some movement on the Play Store with a pre-registration going live for their newest game CATS: Crash Arena Turbo Stars.
Zeptolab's gaming portfolio looks a little one-dimensional. After Cut the Rope, Cut the Rope HD, Cut the Rope 2, Cut the Rope: Experiments, and Cut the Rope: Time Travel, the developer only has two games in its Android portfolio that don't feature that tiny green monster. In the latest update, said monster gets considerably less green. Cut the Rope: Magic is now available in the Play Store for Android devices running 4.0 or later, and it has the now-standard $.99-99.99 in-app purchases.
Did you think the Angry Birds movie was an insane bit of zealous over-licensing at the peak of a mobile gaming fad? You ain't seen nothing yet. According to IGN, Cut The Rope developer ZeptoLab has partnered with production company Blockade Entertainment to create a computer animated movie based on the game's adorable monster protagonist Om Nom. Om Nom: The Movie is currently scheduled to release in 2016, notably the same year that the Angry Birds movie will hit theaters.
The official synopsis for the movie makes surprisingly little mention of ropes or candy, and sounds like an E.T. rip-off that came 30 years too late:
Om Nom tells the story of 13-year old Evan, a boy whose impulsiveness leads him to open a secret package containing a living scientific experiment - with mischievous intentions!
You might know ZeptoLab as the developer of the Cut the Rope games, but now you can also steal the gold in King of Thieves. This game is basically part action-platformer and part Dungeon Keeper. If that sounds both confusing and interesting, you can try it for free.
One of the bigger mobile games that still somehow manages to disappear under the marketing behemoth of Angry Birds is Cut the Rope. Now, the company behind that title has released a new adventure: Pudding Monsters. The basic gist is, there is red, gelatinous pudding in the fridge, and man is the guy who owns that fridge a jerk. He keeps eating all of these clearly-sentient and terrified desert creatures. Help them!
The game is played in stages, much like Cut The Rope, and requires some problem-solving skills to get the job done. You move, manipulate, and merge the wiggling piles of goo, all while avoiding dangerous baddies on the kitchen table until your googly-eyed friends escape to safety.
ZeptoLab, following up on the wild success of Cut the Rope, has released Cut the Rope: Experiments to the Google Play Store, with new characters, gameplay elements, and other features that set Experiments apart from the original in a handful of ways.
In Experiments, players will still try to feed candy to the adorable Om Nom, but will follow a new storyline, in which Om Nom is dropped off at a "mad (but not bad)" scientist's lab. The scientist (Professor) will pop in every once in a while to provide convenient commentary, and guide players through each of the new gameplay elements, which range from rope guns to suction cups, rockets, and water.
Update: If you're the type that likes your games to be ad-free, then you'll be glad to know that Cut the Rope just landed in the Android Market sans ads. Of course, this mean you'll have to pay for it, but at $0.99, it's probably not going to break the bank. Hit the widget for download.
While we Android users seldom admit to jealousy of any kind when it comes to iPhones, one of the more popular games for iOS, Cut The Rope, can really turn us green with envy. Back in October, we pined to have an Android version and were given a vague hint from the developer that it would be coming eventually. That day may be finally approaching soon, as it was revealed on developer ZeptoLab's Twitter account today that the incredibly fun game is headed to Android.
The clever puzzler involves cutting ropes, blowing bubbles, and other tasks in order to deliver candy to a cute little monster named Om Nom.
