"Cut the Rope" Comes to Mac With Dazzling High-Definition Graphics
ZeptoLab Develops New Gameplay Mechanics to Bring Om Nom to MacOS Screens
February 22, 2012 --
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/22/12 -- Global gaming company ZeptoLab today announced the release of its award-winning, physics-based game, Cut the Rope, in the Mac App Store. The game, which has been optimized for MacOS, features stunning high-resolution artwork and innovative game mechanics that have been optimized for computer gameplay.
With more than 100 million downloads, Cut the Rope has seen great success on both mobile phones and tablets. Now, with the MacOS version, players take on the challenge of cutting ropes, popping bubbles, collecting stars and feeding candy to a little green monster named Om Nom on a much bigger screen. The levels on Cut the Rope for MacOS have been specifically tailored for landscape screen orientation, and the game retains its striking, crisp images on monitors up to 2560x1440 resolution.
ZeptoLab has also adjusted some of Cut the Rope's original levels to incorporate longer reaction time and use of a mouse or trackpad, giving players the opportunity to develop new rope-cutting strategies with the click (or click-and-drag) of a mouse.
"We're thrilled to bring Cut the Rope and Om Nom to MacOS users," said Misha Lyalin, CEO of ZeptoLab. "Because many of the original levels were adapted or completely remade to suit the experience associated with desktop games, the MacOS version of Cut the Rope is truly unique."
The MacOS release marks the first time that the full version of Cut the Rope is available for desktop players. Also, the game currently uses Scoreloop to handle online leaderboards and achievements, but will be able to support Game Center on MacOS when it launches.
Cut the Rope is a wildly popular gaming sensation that has, along with Om Nom, become a brand that people recognize around the world. Recently named in the top 4 of 'Top 25 All-Time Paid Apps' in Apple App Store, the game will continue to grow exponentially as it becomes available on additional platforms and devices.
PRICING & AVAILABILITY
Cut the Rope is available for MacOS for $4.99.
The game is also available on iOS devices including iPhone, iPod, and iPad, Android devices, including all Android-powered smartphones, and most recently on NOOK by Barnes & Noble. Cut the Rope will be available on additional platforms later in 2012.
