Cut the Rope – 1. Cardboard Box Walkthrough

Posted on 10 February 2011 by Kjersti Wasiak

There are 25 levels to play in the Cardboard Box part of Cut the Rope.  In the game you mostly swipe your finger to cut ropes in order to get the candy to OmNom (a sort of frog looking guy).  Sounds simple, but you need to do the right strategy if you want to successfully get the candy to OmNom, especially if you want to get all 3 stars in each level.  Some levels in this area involve bubbles, which raise the candy and can be popped by tapping them.

Level 1-1

Simply just slide your finger across the rope to beat this first level with 3 stars.

Level 1-2

Step 1: Cut the rope on the far left.  This will pick up the top left star as it swings down and then the right star as it swings across the screen.

Step 2: Cut the middle rope (now the left one of the remaining ropes) when the candy is nearest to the star.  This will make the candy drop and get the 3rd star.  The rope will then swing the candy into Omnom's mouth.  No need to cut the rope.

Level 1-3

Step 1: Cut the far right rope.  This will make the candy swing over to get the top left star.

Step 2: Next cut the top left rope when the candy swings as far as it can to the left.  This will make it drop to catch the 2nd star and continue to swing and get the 3rd star before ending up in OmNom's mouth.

Step 1: Cut the top rope.  This will pick up the first star.

Step 2: Cut the rope on the right.  This gets the second star.

Level 1-6

Step 1: Cut the rope.  This drops the candy to the get the 1st star and enter the bubble.
