  SAN FRANCISCO, CA, Feb 22 (MARKET WIRE) -- 
Global gaming company ZeptoLab today announced the release of its
award-winning, physics-based game, Cut the Rope, in the Mac App Store.
The game, which has been optimized for MacOS, features stunning
high-resolution artwork and innovative game mechanics that have been
optimized for computer gameplay.

    With more than 100 million downloads, Cut the Rope has seen great success
on both mobile phones and tablets. Now, with the MacOS version, players
take on the challenge of cutting ropes, popping bubbles, collecting stars
and feeding candy to a little green monster named Om Nom on a much bigger
screen. The levels on Cut the Rope for MacOS have been specifically
tailored for landscape screen orientation, and the game retains its
striking, crisp images on monitors up to 2560x1440 resolution. 

    ZeptoLab has also adjusted some of Cut the Rope's original levels to
incorporate longer reaction time and use of a mouse or trackpad, giving
players the opportunity to develop new rope-cutting strategies with the
click (or click-and-drag) of a mouse. 

    "We're thrilled to bring Cut the Rope and Om Nom to MacOS users," said
Misha Lyalin, CEO of ZeptoLab. "Because many of the original levels were
adapted or completely remade to suit the experience associated with
desktop games, the MacOS version of Cut the Rope is truly unique." 

    The MacOS release marks the first time that the full version of Cut the
Rope is available for desktop players. Also, the game currently uses
Scoreloop to handle online leaderboards and achievements, but will be
able to support Game Center on MacOS when it launches.

    Cut the Rope is a wildly popular gaming sensation that has, along with Om
Nom, become a brand that people recognize around the world. Recently
named in the top 4 of 'Top 25 All-Time Paid Apps' in Apple App Store, the
game will continue to grow exponentially as it becomes available on
additional platforms and devices.

    PRICING & AVAILABILITY
 Cut the Rope is available for MacOS for $4.99. 

    The game is also available on iOS devices including iPhone, iPod, and
iPad, Android devices, including all Android-powered smartphones, and
most recently on NOOK by Barnes & Noble. Cut the Rope will be available
on additional platforms later in 2012.
