Save Yammi



Physics puzzler a la Cut the Rope has inventive twists.

What parents need to know

Ease of play

The physics are smooth, but you'll need good motor control to advance deep into the game, something young players might not possess. The game ramps slowly, though, giving players plenty of time to get used to the mechanics.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Save Yammi is a physics-based puzzle game that has a lot in common with (but is not an exact clone of) the hit app Cut the Rope. Players must deliver a cookie to a cute critter and collect three mandatory stars in the process. The game is chock full of levels and is presented in a very cheery fashion, and the physics are incredibly accurate, teaching players the importance of nuance. Users can share high scores via the Game Center social network, but participation is optional.

Is it any good?


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.
