Cut the Rope is a classic in mobile gaming. Cute and addictive, it's a great game that's now available on Windows 8.
The premise of Cut the Rope is simple. Om Nom's a hungry monster. His food of choice is candy, but it's suspended above him on ropes. It's your job to cut the rope and feed the monster - but of course, it's not going to be so simple!
Everything about Cut the Rope is cute, from the graphics and animation to the little sound Om Nom makes when he chomps down a candy. The settings are limited to the sounds, although you can choose whether you want to click or drag to make a cut. This is nice for touchscreen devices, where a swipe - rather than a click - will be the obvious way to Cut the Rope!
There's really nothing to criticize in Cut the Rope. It's a great game as it is, and is equally suited to Windows 8, whether you're playing on a tablet or PC. It's cute enough to lull you into a false sense of security, though, so don't say we didn't warn you when you look at your watch to find you've been playing for hours!
Cut the Rope is a classic game that's thankfully made the jump to Windows 8 really well.
