Cut the Rope 3 is a new iteration of a beloved early iPhone game. It’s a physics-based puzzler staring Om Nom and cute little Nibble Nom.

The game is the latest addition to the Apple Arcade subscription service.

Cut the Rope 3 is both cute and challenging

Cut the Rope launched for iPhone way back in 2010, and was an immediate success. There have been sequels over the years, but the last really major update was Cut the Rope 2 in 2013.

Well, Om Nom is back. Cut the Rope 3 swung onto Apple Arcade on Friday. Players need to solve each level to reunite the new little monster Nibble Nom with Om Nom. There’s lots of swinging on ropes.

“The game features beloved characters and signature gameplay mechanics, along with new challenges and physics-based elements that will excite fans of the series,” promises Apple in a statement.

And ZeptoLab UK said its newest offering is “packed with all your favorite signature Cut the Rope mechanics, along with a bunch of new ones that’ll have you hooked!”

Fans who just can’t get enough Om Nom should play Cut the Rope Remastered, also on Apple’s gaming service. And there are many other puzzle games, like Garden Tails and Spire Blast.

Access to these — and over 200 more — comes with a $4.99-per-month subscription to Apple’s gaming service. And one subscription works for up to six family members. Plus, there are never hidden costs in the games, as in-app purchases are forbidden.
