'Cut the Rope 2' update trims away need for in-app purchases

With the first update to the new sequel Cut the Rope 2 players can now access extra levels without needing to pay for them.

ZeptoLab's adorable Cut the Rope 2 is not free-to-play; it costs $.99 to download initially. So players were irked when they discovered that some of the game's content was locked behind in-app purchases when it launched just before the holidays.

Thankfully the developer has updated Cut the Rope 2 to version 1.0.1, adding another way for players to unlock those stages without having to pay for them.

"We hear you loud and clear!" reads the update note on the game's App Store page. "Now unlock secret levels by collecting medals (good ol’ clover leaves work just as before)."

Removing free-to-play obstructions from games seems to be a trend lately; Disney did it in Where's My Water 2? in December, and PopCap did the same for Plants vs. Zombies 2 just a week before that.
