Cut the Rope is an addictive physics-based [[PuzzleGame puzzle video game]] for the iOS, Android and [[NintendoDS DSiWare]].

The objective of each of the game's levels is to maneuver a piece of candy into the mouth of a cartoon monster, called Om Nom, and also to pick up up to three stars per level by touching them with the candy.

All you have to do is cut the rope to let the candy drop into Om Nom's mouth... at first. Later levels provide bubbles, automatically-appearing rope, sliding rope as well as hazards in the form of [[SpikesOfDoom spikes]], [[DemonicSpiders spiders]] and electrical traps. Its direct sequel, ''Cut the Rope: Experiments'', builds on prior mechanics in the same vein, adding stuff like gravity manipulation and ropes attached to suction cups.

Despite sounding similar, this game is completely unrelated to ''YouHaveToBurnTheRope'', other than the fact that rope is involved.

!!!'''Tropes used for this game:'''

* AWinnerIsYou: The ending is pretty much bare bones, showing Om Nom on top of a massive mountain of candy and the words "Thank You For Playing".
* BanditMook: The spiders, sort of. They will try to steal the candy once they reach the end of the rope they're on (which is attached to the candy). To prevent them from doing so, cut the rope they're on.
* BigEater: Om Nom. The AWinnerIsYou ending shows him on top of a 10-metre high mound of candy.
* CartoonCreature: What exactly is Om Nom supposed to be (other than a monster)?
* CasualGame
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: You have to cut the rope.
* ExcusePlot: You have a monster, and he's hungry for candy.
* EvilLaugh: The spiders do one when they nab your candy.
* GottaCatchEmAll: The stars. Three of them are in each level, and the path to getting them is ''less than easy''...
** There's also the pictures. You have to click on suspicious parts of the background to find them, and those are very subtle.
* GravityScrew: Present in the Cosmic Box, and also a few levels in the Magic Box.
* HundredPercentCompletion: Getting all the stars.
* MeaningfulName: '''Om'''''Nom''nomnomnomnomnom...
* OurMonstersAreDifferent: And this one's adorable and harmless...
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Om Nom, the little green monster. And if he fails to get his candy, he makes a little "aww..." sound along with a sad face. A ''ridiculously cute'' sad face.
** UpToEleven in the web series "Om Nom Stories", which show him looking for candy in [[RogerRabbitEffect the real world]].
* ShownTheirWork: In terms of physics, this game is very accurate- tension, gravity, momentum are all fully and well-implemented.
* [[FourLeggedInsect Six Legged Spider]]: Unfortunately, the spiders do fail biology by having only six legs.
* SpikesOfDoom: Present in many, many levels. Don't let the candy touch these - it will crack, and Om Nom will be sad.
* SpinOff: Zepto Lab, the creators of the game, made a series of short subjects called ''OmNomStories''. As of this writing, 10 episodes, a pilot, and a "Behind the Scenes" have been posted. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sz1kX1Z3CUE&list=SPVxGcyI6KPth2dKNkp-0dH2VYCJCppzDE&index=10 Here is the first episode.]]
* SpringsSpringsEverywhere: The Toy Box introduces bouncy platforms which the cady will bounce off from.
* TeleportersAndTransporters: The Magic Box introduces the magician's hats, which act as transporters. The sweet retains its speed if it passes through one, allowing some interesting situations.
** The christmas stockings in the [[ChristmasSpecial Cut The Rope: Holiday Gift]], [[OlderThanTheyThink which were added before the Magic Box.]]
* TimedMission: Several of them, especially those where the stars disappear after a short time.
** Also, if there's a spider involved, you have to get rid of it (by cutting the rope it's on) before it gets to the candy, otherwise, cue the spider grinning as it leaps off the screen with the candy, followed by Om Nom's sad face.
* TrademarkFavouriteFood: Candy for Om Nom, and presumably the spiders who try to steal it.
** SweetTooth

* FridgeLogic: The candies have to come in such a complicated string puzzle instead of being directly delivered to the monster...
** FridgeBrilliance: ...because the player would probably get his hand bitten if he handed it directly. Om Nom is a monster, after all...
* GoddamnedBats: The spiders that try to get to the end of a rope and steal the candy. This means that a rope with a spider is on a timer, forcing you to hurry if you want to keep your candy safe.



* ItsEasySoItSucks: Some complain that the game is too easy on a whole- including obtaining all three stars in all the levels, no less.



* ThatOneLevel: Quite a few of them. ''Especially'' if you're [[HundredPercentCompletion going for all three stars]].
