4) Cut the Rope Gold

Cut The Rope has a simple concept: in each level, a candy is suspended by one or more strings that must be sliced with your finger using the screen. To achieve the level, the candy must fall on the monster who is looking forward to it. Many levels are available, and the difficulty naturally increases as you go.

Note that there are many versions of the game on mobile app stores. The free versions are filled with ads, and ask $12 PER MONTH to remove them. While the paid versions cost $1.49 and have no advertising and subscription…

We therefore advise to quickly test the free versions of your choice and switch to a paid GOLD version to enjoy the games correctly. Maybe start with Cut The Rope GOLD 1 or 2 to find out.
