No more "Scrolling Animation" Bug in "Cut The Rope" ver. 1.4

( Updated on 18th Nov 2011:  I named the old bug as "scrolling animation" bug which was introduced in ver. 1.1 of "Cut The Rope" and removed in ver. 1.4 because there's a new bug in ver. 1.5, read NEW "Electric Sparks" Bug in "Cut The Rope" ver. 1.5 )

"Purple Dream" (using iPhone 4) replied saying that he/she also cannot trigger the "scrolling animation" bug in the new ver. 1.4 of "Cut The Rope".  I also can't do it using iPhone 3G.

Another thing is that he/she discovered something different in Level 1-23, so he/she could increase his/her previous best score for the simplest category "Cardboard Box" by 10 pts.

Now I don't have time to replay the old box levels yet, I'll report here if I find anything different.

All of you can directly email ZeptoLab also and report anything different if you find them.  Their email address is: info@zeptolab.com

Locations of Om Nom Drawings

( Updated on 30th March 2015:  The Om Nom Drawings shown below are for "Cut The Rope" ver. 2.5 (Full version).  There're 21 drawings so far.

The Om Nom drawing locations for iOS and Android platforms are slightly different.  I only play the iPhone version but for Android players, please read the following comments by "Federico Salamanca" posted on 1st August 2013:

"Hello CTRopers... I finished playing CTR and wanted to get all the drawings so I came here for help... all good except for levels 6, 7 & 8. I'm playing through Android, CTR is CTR FULL FREE 2.3 updated in Jul 26. According to this page, one of the pictures is from Facebook, levels 6, 7 & 8 have four drawings; so from the other 14 pictures (of 19 total) I had no problem, the level numbers are good BUT the level pictures showing the location aren't correct in a couple of cases, sorry but I don't remember which cases, there were like 5 cases where the drawing was placed in a different spot that showed the pictures above, so take your time they're there. Back to the issue with the levels 6, 7 and 8... so the numbers above if you're playing on Android level 6 is now 7, level 7 is 8, and level 8 is 6... so go look for 6-1, 6-15, 7-17, 8-14... you will find the exact same drawings pointed above."

Thanks everyone for posting the additional tips. :)

(3) "Cut The Rope: Holiday Gift" (ver. 1.1 up to 1.7) (FREE app) does not have this type of drawings but it has an interesting "greeting card" creation feature, read NEW "Greeting Card" Feature in "Cut The Rope: Holiday Gift".

( Note: I purposely used a different colour (red instead of green) to circle the drawing location starting from the screenshot below because the previous screenshots were taken before the "superpower" feature was introduced in "Cut The Rope" ver. 1.9, so the top left corner of those screenshots don't have the "lightning" icon. )

Drawing Location in Level 16-13 of "Cut The Rope" (iOS)

( Note: Yet again I used a new colour blue to circle the drawing location starting from the screenshot below because the previous screenshots were taken before the NEW "magnetic stars" feature was introduced in "Cut The Rope" ver. 2.5, so the top left corner of those screenshots don't have the "magnet" icon. )

Drawing Location in Level 17-19 of "Cut The Rope" (iOS)

( For Android players: Please read the comments at the top portion of this article. )

Please look at all the screenshots above.  Just tap on the circled region inside the game level to get the drawing.  The drawings can only be found once.

For the drawing which I labelled with "f" in the 1st screenshot, you have to tap on an "f" icon at that location, then tap on a "Like" button inside a message (they only appear before you get the drawing) and log in your Facebook account.  Actually you don't need to own a Facebook account or successfully log in a Facebook account to get the drawing, but this may change in future versions.

For those levels whose gameplay area is more than 1 screen, like 2-18 (hidden drawing location at bottom left), you have to play the game until the candy moves near that location and the hidden drawing (looks like a piece of paper) appears on screen then you can tap on it.

Changes to Level Design in "Cut The Rope"

( Updated on 12th Jan 2012:  I missed a change in "Level 3-12" of "Foil Box" reported by "Gregor Fran".  For "Cardboard Box" levels 21 and 23, read the article on 2nd Aug 2011: More Changes to Level Design: Levels 1-21 & 1-23.  The boxes in "Cut The Rope" have been re-ordered in ver. 1.6, so I have to rename some of the levels below. )

If you're not a regular player of "Cut The Rope" starting from its early 1.0 or 1.1 versions or if you're not observant enough, you may not know that some of the levels in the game have been changed.

So far they've been changed 3 times, the 1st time in ver. 1.2 (when the 6th box "Valentine Box" came out, now changed to 5th box) where they simplified some levels of the "Cosmic Box", the 2nd time in version 1.4 (changes to "Cardboard", "Fabric", "Foil" and "Gift" boxes) and the 3rd time in ver. 1.6 (changes to "Cosmic", "Valentine", "Magic" and "Toy" boxes).

For the changes in ver. 1.2, I don't have the old screenshots so I just describe in words below:
(1) "Cosmic Box" level 6: Added a bubble at bottom right.
(2) "Cosmic Box" level 10: Removed the upper rope previously attached to candy and shifted the location of the anti-gravity device from top to bottom.
(3) "Cosmic Box" level 14: Removed a row of spikes previously just under Om Nom.
(4) "Cosmic Box" level 20: Shifted the locations of the left column of spikes and the rightmost lever.
(5) "Cosmic Box" level 25: Removed the bottom row of spikes.

( Note:  I took the photos of the newly designed levels myself using my own iPhone but for the "old" versions, I used the photos posted by "Purple Dream" in his/her Chinese forum http://bbs.weiphone.com/read-htm-tid-2544879.html as I've already upgraded my app to a newer version. )

The old design had an anti-gravity device which should be introduced in the "Cosmic Box" (previously the 5th box and now the 8th), so this level was probably changed because now the "Magic Box" has become the 4th box instead of the 7th in the old box order.
