ZeptoLab's hit puzzle game Cut the Rope has been named Apple's App of the Week, which means it can be downloaded for free for the first time ever. First introduced in 2010, the game's gesture-based gameplay and and candy-gobbling character Om Nom earned it instant popularity with players of all skill levels.

In Cut the Rope, players swipe to cut candies dangling from ropes, causing the candy to fall into Om Nom's waiting mouth. Levels become more difficult as the game progresses, introducing a number of obstacles that must be overcome to get the candy to Om Nom.

A mysterious package has arrived, and the little monster inside has only one request… CANDY! Collect gold stars, discover hidden prizes and unlock exciting new levels in this addictively fun, award-winning, physics-based game!

Since its debut, Cut the Rope has been updated numerous times to add additional content and levels to the game. Currently, there are more than 375 levels to complete, along with superpowers and a newly introduced candy-stealing mouse mechanic.

Cut the Rope is available for the iPhone or iPad and it will be free for one week. [Direct Links: iPhone/iPad]

I feel so bad when I miss giving Om Nom the candy. He is so happy anticipating his treats, but his little heart get SO broken every time you drop one. It's tear-jerking!

You'll laugh, you'll cry... You'll suddenly have missing time like the Bermuda Triangle... Wondering if you REALLY did try that level 142 times????

So the game normally costs money to buy and still has in app purchases? No thanks.

I think the IAP is just a link to buy CTR: Experiments. I don't recall there being any "in game" purchasing.
