iOS And Android Game Of The Week: April 19, 2013
Om Nom reigns supreme.
Here's something that's never happened before: this week's best iOS and Android game is in fact the same title. We didn't have to look far, really. Halfbrick put up a fight with its entertaining Fish Out of Water!, but at the end of the day, the developers at ZeptoLab won by the slightest margin. Without further ado...
For the most part, the developers at ZeptoLab could have released yet another update for the original Cut the Rope and we would have been satisfied, more or less. Thankfully, the studio went in a different direction with a brand-new entry in the series that does the global phenomenon justice. Time Travel sends Om Nom through different periods of history. What at first seemed like a cheesy gimmick resulted in new ways of solving puzzles. For starters, various ancestors accompany the little guy on-screen, and players must figure out ways to please both critters. Meanwhile, interesting mechanics go a long way to breathing new life into the usual cutting formula, with gamers worrying about chains, flying candies and rubber bands. In all, a wonderful addition to the Cut the Rope family, and a must-play for every smartphone and tablet user.
