Puzzle games are among the most popular genres in the mobile gaming arena. And this is especially true for physics based ones that seem really simple to work through, but can get really challenging as your progress. Just sit down with your smartphone or tablet, and you could lose hours totally engrossed at tapping away at the touchscreen to solve every challenge.
iOS users have always had the bigger slice of the mobile gaming pie when It comes to these physics based time sinkholes, with the likes of Angry Birds, Cut the Rope, and Apparatus in massive popularity. Eventually they each found their way to the Android OS for Google mobile users to subsist on. And today, Cut the Rope’s latest iteration, Experiments, makes its debut on Google Play’s app section.
Created by Russian game development company Zeptolab, Cut the Rope: Experiments is the latest installment to the addictive game released in 2010. Like before, you are tasked to help a mad professor conduct experiments across different environments, navigating your way through levels ad your attempt to get candy into the waiting mouth of a cute frog-like creature aptly named Om Nom. And you’re going to have to collect stars along the way, and unlock new levels as the experiments get more and more challenging to accomplish.

Adding an entirely fresh and challenging take on the addictive gameplay are new components like rope guns, suction cups, rockets and water. Also in the game are new characters, and a storyline that features the commentary from the professor.
And like almost anything app-related these days, Cut the Rope: Experiments gets a social integration, allowing you to find objects for the professor’s photo album to be shared over Facebook. Boasting about your achievements and leaderboard status with other players around the world will be done through Scoreloop.
