Cut the Rope: Holiday Gift
A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this app.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Cut the Rope: Holiday Gift is a Christmas-themed version of the popular physics-based Cut the Rope game. Holiday Gift offers 25 new levels and a new stocking puzzle element that teleports candy to different parts of the screen. Holiday Gift is free, but encourages players to purchase the "full" Cut the Rope game, which costs $.99. Our review is based on the iPhone app; the Android app may have some differences in functionality.

Is it any good?
CUT THE ROPE: HOLIDAY GIFT is partly an advertisement for the original Cut the Rope game, but don't be turned off by that. The stocking cannons that it introduces are more than just a gimmick, and make for a whole new crop of wonderful physics-based challenges. Like past games, casual players can focus on getting the candy into the mouth of Om Nom (who now sports reindeer antlers), while advanced players can also try to collect all of the stars in each level.
