On Nom, the candy-munching critter from ZeptoLab's best-selling Cut The Rope games, has become something of a cultural icon. Now, he's made the transition from video games to the real world in this animated video. Jumping out of the iPad to look for more candy, Om Nom runs into a feisty housecat who thinks he would be a tasty snack:

With the holiday season coming up, free Cut The Rope's Holiday Gift edition received a new update recently that added a photo greeting card maker to its candy-eating repertoire.

I enjoy the game and always thought the Om Nom character was something that should be expanded a bit. (But it looks like he's already in the form of a cute plush already, so that's sweet!) The greeting card idea looks very fun. :D

I personally think Om Nom is a better character than the Angry Birds. too bad he doesn't have his own plush toys.

To me, Cut The Rope stands out as one of the best games on the App Store. It beats Angry Birds hands down. It's beautifully designed, not a dud pixel in site, it uses realistic physics and is a joy to plough through. It's also not ridiculously difficult early on which kept me with it.

That video is adorable. I agree with others here, Cut the Rope is more fun than Angry Birds.

The greeting card thing is a cool idea.

Which two-dimensional "reality" did you compare it to when you came up with this?

Two dimensional physics in theory would be equivalent to our three dimensional physics, but with movement limited to the x and y axes. I thought that was pretty obvious anyway. :p
