Changes to "Cut The Rope" ver. 2.0, "Cut The Rope: Experiments" ver. 1.5, "Cut The Rope Free" ver. 2.0, etc.

( Updated on 29th November 2012:  ZeptoLab just released NEW versions of its apps to add support for iPad (1st generation) and to fix some minor bugs.   The latest version no. for "Cut The Rope: Experiments" is now 1.5.1 and for both "Cut The Rope" and "Cut The Rope Free" it's 2.0.1. )

ZeptoLab suddenly released NEW versions of its apps for the iOS platform: "Cut The Rope" ver. 2.0, "Cut The Rope: Experiments" ver. 1.5, "Cut The Rope Free" ver. 2.0, etc.

NO new box or level has been added and the changes are quite minor actually.  Besides adding iPhone 5 graphics support and giving away 3 FREE Superpowers each for both "Cut The Rope" and "Cut The Rope: Experiments" (read: "Cut The Rope: Experiments" ver. 1.4 now has "Superpowers" !), the following changes have been made:

(1) ZeptoLab has stopped supporting "Crystal" leaderboards and achievements for "Cut The Rope" and "Cut The Rope Free", now there is only "Game Center" support.  View the screenshots for the "main menu" below:

"Cut The Rope" Old Menu with "Crystal" Support

"Cut The Rope" NEW Menu without "Crystal" Support


(2) A NEW video viewing feature has been added inside the app which allows you to view the "Om Nom Stories" videos (read: Om Nom Stories).  I show you the different appearances of the "Cartoons" menu for the different apps:

"Cut The Rope" ver. 2.0 "Cartoons" Menu
For "Cut The Rope" ver. 2.0, the present 12 boxes are now located as follows: 1st 5 boxes (Cardboard, Fabric, Foil, Magic and Valentine) in "Season 1" sub-menu, next 5 boxes (Toy, Gift, Cosmic, Tool and Buzz) in "Season 2" sub-menu and the remaining boxes (11th DJ and 12th Spooky) in "Season 3" sub-menu.

"Cut The Rope: Experiments" ver. 1.5 "Cartoons" Menu

"Cut The Rope Free" ver. 2.0 "Cartoons" Menu
"Cut The Rope Free" ver. 2.0 (only 18 levels, 9 in "Cardboard Box" and 9 in "Fabric Box") has ads located at the bottom of the menu screens, as shown above.

"Cartoons" Feature allows Viewing of "Om Nom Stories"


(3) Removal of "Skip level" function in pause menu for "Cut The Rope" ver. 2.0 and "Cut The Rope: Experiments" ver. 1.5.  This function still remains in "Cut The Rope Free" ver. 2.0.  View the screenshots below:

(4) The new versions of the apps cannot get updated for older iOS devices like iPhone 3G and older generations of iPod Touch because the new app versions require iOS ver. 4.3 or newer for the SD (iPhone/iPod Touch) version while older devices like iPhone 3G can only install up to iOS ver. 4.2.1 in them.
