Om Nom Gains Popularity and Gets a Special Sneak Peak

Leading independent games publisher Chillingo, a division of EA, announced that ZeptoLab’s chart-topping, addictive puzzler, ‘Cut the Rope’, has now sold more than three million units worldwide on the Apple App Store. The company also revealed that the game’s first free update (version 1.1) will be coming soon for iOS devices.

An exclusive sneak peak can be viewed on YouTube.

The upcoming Cut the Rope 1.1 update will introduce Om Nom fans to an exciting new “Cosmic Box” that contains 25 challenging levels. This spaceship-themed box introduces the lovable green monster to a unique anti-gravity feature that turns physics upside down as Om Nom peers through the box’s portholes to see a planet rotating in the distance. The popular game will also bring enhanced retina display graphics, improved scoring accuracy, more expressive Om Nom animations, new musical sounds plus 11 new achievements.

“Chillingo strives to exceed consumers' expectations with our innovative games and Cut the Rope is no exception,” explains Chris Byatte, Co-General Manager of Chillingo. “We actively listen to audience feedback to deliver the best gaming experience possible whether it’s through updated content or modifying areas of concern to optimize the title.”

“We thank all of the amazing fans who have shared the joyful fun Cut the Rope offers with friends and family to make it a phenomenal success,” adds Efim Voinov, CTO of ZeptoLab. “The 1.1 update is just the beginning; we hope to release an additional update just in time for the holidays and bring even more action-packed, Om Nom excitement to your fingertips!”

Cut the Rope blends innovative, physics-oriented gameplay as players feed dangling candy to Om Nom, an adorable and ravenous, little green creature.

Cut the Rope is available for $.99 (iPhone and iPod touch) and a $1.99 (iPad) from the App Store.

A Lite version of Cut the Rope will be available for free from the App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or at the App Store.
