When Cut the Rope (TMA Review) was first released in late 2010, it was simply out of this world, if only because Angry Birds finally had its hegemony challenged. And the game wasn’t all that bad either. Of course it couldn’t help but inspire competition; some have been downright clones, while others were of the more creative variety. The latter has just spawned an interesting concept, something like an anti-cut the rope in Save Yammi.
If you haven’t had enough physics fun with cute aliens, sweet candy and lots of rope, this week BulkyPix released Save Yammi. To its credit, the game adds a few nice twists to the already aging “feed the critter” formula. If you’re looking for something completely different you might want to give Julius Styles The International a try. This part hacking, part puzzle, part action isometric adventure game features Wesley Snipes as a guy trying to evade the government. Go figure. Those obsessed with Zenonia (TMA Review) style game play should check out Exitium: Saviors Of Vardonia. Odd name aside, if it delivers its 800+ adventures it stands to be one of the biggest RPG type games on the App Store.
