Cut The Rope 2 (Android) Walkthrough - Levels 1 Through 10

How to beat the first 10 levels of the Android version of Cut the Rope 2.

Hello, and welcome to the first in a series of guides covering the Android version of Cut the Rope 2, the sequel to the long-time popular physics puzzle game from ZeptoLab.

While iOS users know Cut the Rope 2 as a paid app, the game is free to play in the Android marketplace. Along with this conversion are a number of new levels (such as collecting fruit) and features to bulk up your time with the game.

After the first four levels, each level contains three separate objectives that must be cleared individually. Completion of an objective rewards medals, which can be used to open more areas of the game. Players also receive coins for high scores, which can be used to buy power-ups and cosmetic items in the in-game shop.

(This guide has proven to be a bit too complicated for some. Those of you looking for super simple step-by-step directions on gathering fruit can find that in my Cut the Rope 2 - Fruit Gathering Walkthrough.)

There are a few things to bear in mind to understand this and all upcoming related Cut the Rope 2 guides, specifically the indicators on each image.

Indicators denote what and where things must be done, and are color-coded based on whether you need to cut rope, pop balloons, or have Roto release (among other things).

If indicators they are being directly referenced in the instructions to the right, they will be marked as (1), (2), (3), and so on. If not, the step numbers will correlate with the indicator they are referring to.

Indicator colors and what they mean

    • - A rope must be cut
    • - A balloon must be popped
    •  - Shows where its correlating number should be cut, popped, etc.
    • - Something must be picked up or dropped, depending on the situation

The black indicators with white numbering are translucent and have a number correlating with another indicator in an image to show where something should be done. This is fairly obvious in practice.

All three variations of a level are included below. You can click one of these links to be taken down to a particular level, sans 1 ~ 4, which are directly below:

More picture guides on how to beat further levels will be added over the coming days!

How to beat levels 1 to 4

Level 1

Objective: Collect 3 stars

  1. Cut the rope and the candy will fall straight down into Om Nom's mouth, collecting all 3 stars in the process

Level 2

Objective: Collect 3 stars

  1. Cut the rope so the candy falls onto the platform below
  2. Once the candy has landed on the bottom platform, cut to compete the level

Level 3

Objective: Collect 3 stars

  1. Cut and wait for the candy to roll onto the lower plank
  2. Cut as soon as you collect the star to roll to victory

Level 4

Objective: Collect 3 stars

  1. Cut so the candy falls and collects the first two stars
  2. Once the candy has settled mid-air, cut (2) to knock the plank over to create a bridge
  3. Once the plank has settled, cut (3) at the indicator while the candy is lightly swinging right to get the last star

How to beat level 5

Level 5-1

Objective: Collect 3 stars

Simply pop the balloon once the stars are aligned to collect all three.

Level 5-2

Objective: Collect 20 fruit

Wait for the balloon to settle at the top, then pop it to collect the final fruits and complete the level.

Level 5-3

Objective: Collect 0 stars

You must pop the balloon before it lines up with the stars.

Once you see there is an opening (ie, the middle star is a bit centered), try to drop the candy to the right of the stars and directly into Om Nom's mouth.

How to beat level 6

Level 6-1

Objective: Collect 3 stars

  1. Cut the tether
  2. Pop once the balloon settles at the indicator
  3. Pop once the candy collects the star at the top
  4. Pop after you collect the third star

Level 6-2

Objective: Collect 23 fruit

  1. Cut the tether
  2. Pop once the balloon settles at the indicator
  3. Pop at the indicator
  4. Pop (4) after the candy sways a moment to complete the level

Level 6-3

Objective: Collect 3 stars in 12 seconds

This is exactly the same as 6-1, but must be done quickly.

Pop (3) as soon as it collects the top star. Pop (4) as soon as it collects the final star to hopefully pass this level in one shot.

Back to top

How to beat level 7

Level 7-1

Objective: Collect 3 stars

Pop the balloons in the order indicated. Always wait for the candy to roll to one end before popping (2), (4), and (6).

Pop (7) at the end to complete the level.

 

Level 7-2

Objective: Collect 30 fruit

Wait for the candy to roll all the way to the left before doing anything.

Pop the balloons slowly just as you would in 7-1 until you reach (6).

Pop (6), wait a couple of seconds, and pop (7) before the candy settles.

Popping (7) must be done in time or else you risk not gathering enough fruit

 

Level 7-3

Objective: Collect 0 stars

  1. Cut all of the rope to the right
  2. Cut all of the rope to the left immediately after
If you time this properly, the candy should fall straight down and roll into Om Nom's mouth.

How to beat level 8

Level 8-1

Objective: Collect 3 stars

  1. Cut the tether
  2. Once the first star is collected, cut the balloon at the indicator
  3. Allow the candy to fall and settle, then cut the tether at the indicator
 

Level 8-2

Objective: Collect 25 fruit

This is done identically to 8-1.

 

Level 8-3

Objective: Collect 2 stars

This is done nearly identically to 8-1, but you must pop the balloon right as it begins to veer left to avoid the first star.

This level make take more than one try to get the timing right.

How to beat level 9

Level 9-1

Objective: Collect 3 stars

  1. Cut the tether and wait for the candy to collect the star to the left
  2. Once the candy swings back to the right, cut the second rope at the second indicator to collect the second star
  3. Once the log is knocked off and the plank floats upward, cut the third tether at the indicator to collect the third star

Level 9-2

Objective: Collect 31 fruit

You do this level just as you would in 9-2 until the plank floats upward.

Once the plank is airborne, use a balloon power-up and attach it to the candy. Ignore the plank and its balloon.

Wait for the candy to float up and collect fruit, then cut its tether from the balloon before the balloon floats too high and disappears. Cut (4) to finish.

Level 9-3

Objective: Collect 0 stars

  1. Cut the first tether
  2. Cut the second tether immediately after. Do not wait! The candy should push the log without touching the star the the right.
  3. Once the plank floats upward, time cutting (3) at the indicator to slip past the star above Om Nom and into his mouth

Back to top

How to beat level 10

Level 10-1

Objective: Collect 3 stars

Simply tap Om Nom free from Roto once he reaches the third star.

Level 10-2

Objective: Collect 39 fruit

Have Om Nom ride Roto all the way to the right, then back to the left.

After Roto has begun going right again, tap him at the indicator to drop Om Nom on the platform and collect the final fruit and candy.

Level 10-3

Objective: Collect 1 star

Collect the first star, then try to drop Om Nom before he touches the second star.

The timing on this is tricky, because the window between touching the second star and dropping Om Nom into the abyss is very short.
