iCloud backups: what does turning off an app in 'backup options' actually do?

It you switch off an individual app in 'backup options' does this just stop backing up the data or remove the entire app? For example I have 'Cut the rope' switched off in the attached image. Does this mean restoring the backup to a new iPad will not restore the app despite it still being installed on my device, or will it still put it there and just not include the app data?
