The perfect Christmas gift for the iPhone 4.

You know what’s one of the best things about Christmas? Not meeting up with the relatives and having some good family time over some heart-warming dinner. It’s the gifts that will be lined up under the Christmas tree tonight. And the best thing about Christmas gifts is that you will receive at least one gift that you really want!

In case you didn’t, you can always gift yourself something, especially if it’s free. Thanks to Chillingo Ltd. you can now experience the joy of Cut the Rope, one of the highest rated games on the iPhone at the moment, for free. The cool people (pun intended) at Chillingo Ltd. have warmed up our hearts this Christmas by allowing everybody to feed Om Nom some special holiday candies.

Cut the Rope: Holiday Gift is a standalone game from the regular Cut the Rope, but with the same addictive gameplay. You get a mysterious holiday gift and the adorable little creature inside, Om Nom, asks you to simply feed it some candies. Of course, getting the candies to Om Nom is where the fun part lies as this time around we get some special (Portal inspired?) stockings that will teleport the candies to and from the stockings; the height with which the candies fall into the stocking obviously affecting the speed as well.

Adding to the physics based puzzles are the addition of air balloons which will help you swing the ropes in difficult to reach positions to get the additional stars. There’s just a whole lot going on in the game during the later stages which makes the challenge more and more difficult, yet addictive at the same time.

While Cut the Rope: Holiday Gift comes with 25 levels, it is but a small taste of the full retail game (which sells for $0.99) which is worth it in itself. Still, this tasty little morsel from Chillingo Ltd. is a great gift for all you iPhone 4 owners with some dynamic new additions to the gameplay, and is definitely worth downloading.


From auditing to editing, I now test and analyze the latest gadgets and games instead of the latest financial statements. Both jobs are equally intense and rewarding. When I'm not burning up hardware in the name of science, you'll find me nuking in DOTA 2 or engineering in TF2.
