Cut the Rope to emulate Angry Birds success?

New app sells over 1 million in 10 days

Angry Birds might have some competition creeping up on it with Cut the Rope.

The publishers of the highly successful Angry Birds have sold one million copies (both iPhone and iPad sales) of its latest game: Cut the Rope. It's achieved this ten days after its launch, thus making it the fastest selling app in the Apple App Store till date.

In the game, players have to feed candy to a little green monster, adorably named Om Nom. Involving physics, levels and bright visuals, Cut the Rope seems to be a hit with the audience.

The director of Chillingo, Chris Byatte told The App Whisperer: “Cut the Rope’s popularity has skyrocketed throughout recent days as fans eagerly share with others how addictive and fun the gameplay is on iOS devices."

He added: “We are thrilled to see Om Nom’s fame spread across the world and are collaborating with Developer, ZeptoLab to bring fresh new updates, which will be revealed soon.” After four worlds, the "Coming soon" message appears, which points to the game staying on the charts for some time to come.

Cut the Rope is currently the number one top paid game in the US, France, Finland, Germany, Italy, Netherlands and Sweden.

Those wanting to get their Cut the Rope fix, can head over to the App store and get it for 59p for the iPhone or iPod Touch and £1.19 for the iPad.

Who knows, Android users might get it too one day the way they did Angry Birds.
