ZeptoLab has a numbered sequel ready for Cut the Rope, and it will be available a little later this month.

Not much is known about the sequel, but apparently Om Nom – the insatiable green monster who eats all of the candy – is missing. Teaser images for the game seem to show other cute creatures, as well as new spider-like enemies. This isn't the first follow-up to Cut the Rope. There has been Cut the Rope: Experiments, as well as Cut the Rope: Time Travel (you can read our review here), but this is the first Cut the Rope to have the number 2 behind it.

The game will be available for download as a universal iOS app on December 19.

Our Take
I am a big fan of Cut the Rope. I even have a plush Om Nom on my desk. There have been a lot of new Cut the Ropes, however, as well as free additional content for the Cut the Ropes that have already released. I have fallen way behind on the game, but I think I may have to find some time for the official numbered sequel.
