Cut the Rope gets new 'Magic Box,' gigantic playable demo

Good news, fans of the delightful, physics-based iOS puzzler Cut the Rope! (Or, rather, bad news, if you had things you needed to do today.) An update is now available to the ZeptoLab-developed hit which adds 25 new levels as part of the "Magic Box," and also adds three new Game Center achievements. The new gameplay mechanic this time around is top hats, which serve as portals for your tethered confections -- much like the stockings featured in Cut the Rope: Holiday Gift.

To celebrate the new levels, Chillingo has constructed two massive playable demo stations featuring nine touch screens a piece. If you've got business at Los Angeles' Hollywood & Highland Center or Atlanta International Airport, keep an eye out for these big, beautiful displays -- it's likely to be the most satisfying rope-cutting you ever do.

WHO:
Chillingo - Leading Independent Games Publisher and division of Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS).

Monster Media - The Global Leader in Out-of-Home Digital Advertising

WHAT:
To celebrate the just-released Cut the Rope 1.3 Magic Box update, Chillingo partnered with Monster Media to create two groundbreaking interactive displays that showcase the world of Om Nom and the BAFTA Award-winning Cut the Rope like never before.

Incorporating nine widescreen touch-sensitive displays, portions of the App Store hit have been recreated on a massively larger scale, allowing players to interact with Om Nom in a thrilling and colossal new way for the entire month of April. This is the first time Monster Media has utilized multi-touch technology for gaming in such a display.

Reaching millions of new players across the country, each interactive board has been placed in a landmark location: one at Los Angeles' renowned Hollywood & Highland Center, and the other at Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport, a major hub for both world and domestic travelers.

The Cut the Rope 1.3 Magic Box update allows fans to explore a brand new box filled with magic and other "egg-citing" surprises. Marvel as candy disappears and reappears between magical top hats, and discover hidden secrets fit for both Om Nom and maybe even the Easter bunny.
