My favorite video game character, Om Nom, takes a trip through time in an awesome addition to the popular mobile game franchise. Om Nom’s travels take us back in history to visit his ancestors from six different periods.

In the Middle Ages Om Nom meets his Viking alter ego, where we are introduced to the concept of feeding two Om Nom monsters. Two candies are in play on each level and you must feed one to each of the Om Noms. The Renaissance introduces a freeze mechanic that is both awesome and frustrating. Timing is everything and most mistakes will have you reaching for the reload icon. On the Pirate Ship level we get bombs to push and throw the candies. Be careful or you could launch them out of the box. The other three levels include Ancient Egypt with flying candies, Ancient Greece where Om Nom is elevated on stone platforms, and The Stone Age.

The game is a great fun diversion with a few challenging levels. I have enjoyed playing the game over the last few days, and after finishing 3 stars on each level I’m now going back to pick up the last two achievements. If you enjoyed the first two  games, this one will definitely please you.

Cut The Rope: Time Travel is available for both iOS in the app store, and Android at the Play store, or Amazon. It’ll set you back a meager $0.99, and is well worth it.

  1. I enjoyed the new mechanics, though I was sad when I finished the game so quickly. I’m trying to max out achievements, but I can’t figure out how to get “Interrupted dialogue”. Any hints?

    • Yeah, I finished it in just a couple days, but the new mechanics are a lot of fun. I hope that future releases include more levels for each of the boxes too, or at least incorporate some of those mechanics in newer ones.

    • I picked this one up by accident.

      The one I’m having trouble with is stopping time when the candy flies into Om Nom’s mouth. I suspect it’s easier on one level than others, but haven’t found it yet.

      • That’s achievement is exactly what’s keeping me from getting all 26!! Any suggestions as to how to do it? Om Nom instantly closes his mouth when the candy nears it and I have no way to stop time then making this achievement almost impossible for me..

      • JUST GOT MY LAST ACHIEVEMENT!! Here’s how: Renaissance 2-02: Drop only the first candy by cutting the rope and freezing time. Then carefully freeze and unfreeze time alternately while the candy falls into Om Nom’s mouth. The trick is to let Om Nom eat the candy flying into his mouth from the TOP and NOT from the BOTTOM; that way Om Nom closes his mouth much faster making the achievement much harder.

    • On Ancient Greece you have to hit the stone with both candies at the same time so that the platform turns a full 360
