I can honestly say, this is one of my favorite iphone games yet, it's so addictive, and love the physics aspects! Very refreshing game!

    Its a great game but too easy. I beat most levels on 1or2 tries with 3 stars. Took a few hours to beat the whole game with 3 stars on everything

    talk about timing...

    ugh, not good timing at all! How did your Dragon Fire game do? Wait until the weekend, sales might get better :)

    edit: You need more reviews on your app Ian, for all those peeps that got graphics from Ian, I think you could drop a review for him!

    BEST.GAME.EVER. Defenitely deserves the #1 spot! This game is so inspiring!

    It's now featured in N&N, so instead of getting 10,000 downloads a day, it will get more :) *I think I just threw up in my mouth* :)

    Uhm, no.

    From all of the games that i've played on my device, its the best. Can i not have an opinion? :( And anyways, its one of the few that actually beat angry birds in a while
  • ORBZORBZ Posts: 1,303Member
    Lol, ya, you are entitled to your opinion. I was just thinking that when you said "EVER" games like Super Mario Bros and Zelda popped into my head. Not to mention DOOM or Final Fantasy. So, while "Cut the Rope" is cute, and I do enjoy it very much, I can't really say it's the best game ever I'm really curious to see what Epic is planning. :)

    And yes, I'm glad to see that someone's marketing department was good enough to beat out Angry Birds. It kinda bums me out though that the games that are in the #1 spot are there due to great marketing and not due to great concepts. So-so at best. Angry birds is just Worms, only not as good, cut-the-rope is unique, but reminds me a lot of any physics puzzler.

    I wonder how much of the #1 position is due to marketing vs. actual game development innovation.

    Or am I just way skewed in my perception of what a great game is? I guess growing up on nintendo and playstation skewed my perspective a little bit on what a "great" game is.

    I'm hardcore I suppose, casual is weird to me.

    Although, I do find myself really liking the game Stoneship... lol, so simple, go figure :P

    @Orbz: Now when you compare "Cut the rope" to giants like Nintendo with Super Mario Bros, and Zelda, well, they make most iphone games look like those mini keychain, black and white handheld games you'd buy at Walgreen's :) lol

    But all in all, I think "Cut the Rope" for an iphone game, is very well made, and definitely in my top 5 list (excluding iphone ports like final fantasy, sonic etc) :)

    @butterbean

    Absolutely, cut-the-rope is great. But, for me, it's not the best game ever. not even close.

    Funny though, I don't see any of the major studios on the top10 list of iphone games. How odd.

    I have a feeling though that Epic's Citadel is going to be HUGE.

    Oh yea, I downloaded the demo for that, and it's breathtaking :) I think Citadel will be a hit for sure :)

    Chillingo is great at marketing their games. :)
