This is the first game in the Cut the Rope franchise, a series of physics-based puzzle games where you must cut ropes, collect stars, and feed your hungry monster friend.

How to Play Cut the Rope

Cut the ropes in the correct order so the candy swings and collects all the stars, then feed Om Nom. Sometimes, you must slice through the rope at the right moment so it falls in the right direction.

You need a certain number of stars to continue progress in Cut the Rope. As you get further, you’ll encounter new puzzle elements like bubbles and air cushions. Use these devices to secure all the stars before feeding little Om Nom.


  • 25 puzzling levels
