Cut the Rope: Holiday Gift launches as free festive app

Standalone Christmas Cut the Rope app hits iOS devices

Cut the Rope given free festive makeover

Chillingo, the brains behind app hit Cut the Rope has announced a free festive-themed edition of the addictive puzzle game as it follows its Angry Birds sibling down the holiday route.

Released as a standalone app, Cut the Rope: Holiday Gift is now available as a free download for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad featuring 25 new Christmas-tinged levels as users are tasked with feeding craftily placed candies to a little green monster named Om Nom.

Adding more than some tinselly graphics and Christmas tree backgrounds, Holiday Gift incorporates bell jinglingly festive music and new teleporting Christmas stockings for a full-on yuletide offering. A number of new achievements have also been added to the rehashed app success.

Cut the Rope: Holiday Gift is the latest in a series of Christmas-themed app releases following the wintry touches added to Rovio’s bird flinging mega app Angry Birds Seasons launched as a free app on Android handsets or as a paid option on iOs devices last week.
