Cut The Rope, the iOS game app launched by Angry Birds publisher Chillingo, has been downloaded over 2 million times from the Apple App Store within three weeks of its launch.
The game is focused on a cute green monster called Om Nom, whom the user needs to feed by cutting the rope with a swipe of their finger so that the candy dangling from the rope falls into his mouth via an assortment of obstacles. This highly addictive game is based on the laws of physics.
The popular game had managed to cross the one million downloads milestone after only 10 days of its launch.
Chris Byatte, Co-General Manager of Chillingo, said in a statement: “Cut the Rope continues to break records with leading, international sales. Our new partnership with EA enables us to expand Om Nom’s prospects, visibility and reach to make more of an impact than ever before.”
Chillingo was recently acquired by Electronic Arts (EA) in a $20 million deal. EA is planning to use Chillingo to strengthen its mobile gaming base.
