Cut the Rope: Holiday Gift puts some free Christmas cheer in your iOS stocking

The issue with cute monsters that possess an insatiable hunger for candy is that they're a perpetual problem, albeit a fun one. Chillingo recognizes this and, for you millions of nurturers out there, will launch Cut the Rope: Holiday Gift, a free standalone iOS game set to arrive on the App Store sometime this month.

Holiday Gift is comprised of 25 Christmas-themed levels and incorporates a new "Christmas Sock" mechanic where players can teleport candy between socks. Then, of course, there are new menus, music tracks and achievements to check out. There isn't an exact date for the launch of Holiday Gift yet, but Chillingo assures us it'll be available before Christmas -- we'll be sure to let you know when we've got a date.
