Cut the Rope is an iPhone game developed by ZeptoLab and published by Chillingo. The goal of Cut the Rope is to get a piece of candy into your pet monster's mouth by cutting ropes. The game introduces more gameplay elements as the levels progress including bubbles, blowers and obstacles such as spikes and spiders. There are also three stars to collect in each puzzle which add to the difficulty. These stars are needed to unlock each of the other stages in the game.


There are 25 different puzzles in each stage (or box). Each puzzle has 3 stars to collect, meaning that there are a possible 75 total stars in each box. The developers have promised more puzzles in the future, but the boxes that are currently found in Cut the Rope are as follows:

  1. Cardboard Box
  2. Fabric Box
  3. Foil Box
  4. Gift Box
  5. Cosmic Box (250 stars needed to unlock)
  6. Valentines Box
  7. Magic Box
  8. Toy Box
