Cut the Cable BlackBerryCut the Cable BlackBerry

Cut the Cable

If you have ever tried the popular Cut the Rope game in iOS devices and hoped for some of the same on BlackBerry, Cut the Cable is your answer. The strategy game is both simple and super addicting at the same time. You need to cut the cables attached to the candy in order to get it into the green monsters mouth. Sounds simple enough right? It's actually quite challenging as the levels go on, but if you're like me you'll find yourself stuck to it for quite a while. As you progress the levels get harder and additional items like bubbles and special anchors are introduced. Cut the Cable is available for most devices in the CrackBerry App store.

BlackBerry App Roundup for May 15, 2011 - Win a free copy of Cut the Cable!

Hi, all. The more games like this, the better. On a flight from Vancouver to Taiwan I had the Playbook out and it got lots of envious oohs and ahs from envious iPad owners (including the flight crew). I used games to show the simplicity.

This would be a great addition to the arsenal. :)

Cheers!
