Chillingo announced today a new update is coming our way for Cut the Rope that features heart-shaped candy. AWWW. Om Nom really knows how to get to our hearts with this new Valentine’s Box update (version 1.2) which is coming soon. He has a lot of hearts to get to as well; this physics-based puzzler has sold more than six million copies. The update will bring 25 new levels and a new mechanic called “split-candy” in which the player must reunite the candy before feeding it to On Nom.
“Chillingo is proud to help make Om Nom one of the most recognized game characters on the iOS platform,” explains Chris Byatte, Co-General Manager of Chillingo. “We are excited to work closely with talented indie developers, such as Zeptolab, to bring the best games to consumers. We are thrilled to constantly receive wonderful stories about how players adore Cut the Rope.”
Six million downloads is an impressive number for an iPhone game. Cut the Rope and Angry Birds have been battling it out for the top of the charts, but in reality, once you hit the top like that everyone is a winner. I’ll update the post once the update gets pushed to everyone but in the meantime, check out the latest trailer after the jump showing the new “split-candy” gameplay.
