Free Cut the Rope copycat arrives on Android before official game

Attack of the clones

Summary News Review Screens Videos Articles Tips  
Product: Rope Cut | Publisher: Feelingtouch | Genre: Arcade, Puzzle
For: Android   Also on: PG.Biz
 
Rope Cut Android, thumbnail 1
Android owners waiting patiently for ZeptoLab and Chillingo to port Cut the Rope must have been overjoyed this morning to find the critically acclaimed puzzler waiting for them on the Android Market for free.

But wait, what’s this? Rope Cut? Has it been renamed? Why has the cute little green Om Nom been changed into a cute little green snake?

As eagle-eyed readers (or just those who read the headline before clicking) will have spotted, Rope Cut isn’t in fact Cut the Rope, although apart from the lack of a definite article in the title and the presence of the aforementioned snake, it’s hard to see the difference between the two games.

That’s because Feelingtouch’s game is about as blatant a copy of an existing title as we’ve seen for a long time, with everything from the gameplay to the graphics themselves bearing more than a passing resemblance to the iOS hit.

The company even cheekily describes the title as ‘Cut the Rope - Android version’ on its Facebook page, which is a little rum.

While it’s unlikely to sucker in too many people into thinking it’s the real deal, it does once again highlight the growing trend of copycat games on mobile platforms.

This is what happens when a company is being lazy with a port when a massive group of people are all asking for it. Someone else takes your place. Good move chillingo. By the time you actually do port it....no ones gonna care.
