Today, publisher Chillingo (now a division of Electronic Arts Inc), announced that ZeptoLab’s excellent physics-based puzzle game, ‘Cut the Rope™’ has now sold more than the three million units worldwide on the App Store. The company also released the following video which gives a sneak peak at the game’s first free update, which will be coming soon.

The v1.1 update introduces an all-new 25 level pack called the “Cosmic Box’.

This spaceship-themed box introduces the lovable green monster [Om Nom] to a unique anti-gravity feature that turns physics upside down as Om Nom peers through the box’s portholes to see a planet rotating in the distance. The popular game will also bring enhanced retina display graphics, improved scoring accuracy, more expressive Om Nom animations, new musical sounds plus 11 new achievements.

Chillingo strives to exceed consumers expectations with our innovative games and Cut the Rope is no exception,” explains Chris Byatte, Co-General Manager of Chillingo. “We actively listen to audience feedback to deliver the best gaming experience possible whether it’s through updated content or modifying areas of concern to optimize the title.

We thank all of the amazing fans who have shared the joyful fun Cut the Rope offers with friends and family to make it a phenomenal success,” adds Efim Voinov, CTO of ZeptoLab. “The 1.1 update is just the beginning; we hope to release an additional update just in time for the holidays and bring even more action-packed, Om Nom excitement to your fingertips!
