There's no denying that if it weren't for Cut the Rope, Save Yammi would never have been created. The similarities in the games are glaringly obvious and sometimes distracting. Yammi's lead character, color scheme, music, sounds, and more all seem to be taken directly from the hit app. But the gameplay is just different enough to warrant a look. Rather than cutting ropes, you string them out to help guide a cookie to the hungry cute amorphous creature. And the introduction of things like warp gates, racing wheels, shields, moving platforms, and destructible bricks breaks the game into new territory.

It's fun, if a bit too familiar. And the physics (which are crucial in a game like this) work wonderfully -- making Save Yammi well worth its affordable $1 price tag.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
