I’m not sure how much of a big deal this is, but Cut The Rope [$.99 / Lite / HD] took home a BAFTA the other night becoming the first, as a press release tells us, iPod Touch and iPhone title to win an award at the UK-based event. Specifically, Cut The Rope won one for “handheld” where it was competing against games like Super Scribblenauts, God of War: Ghost of Sparta, and Sonic Team’s Sonic Colors.
If you’re not on the up and up on video game awards shows, BAFTA is the British Academy of Film And Television Arts. It pays attention to the achievements in films, television, and, yes, even video games, and then rewards their excellence. Cut The Rope was able to compete against Nintendo DS and PSP titles, so hey, our medium is definitely becoming much more “mainstream,” eh?
If anything, we’ve an excuse to utter “Cut The Rope” again. It’s a fantastic game, full of heart, creativity, and expression. It totally deserves awards and we’re glad it’s been recognized by a big old establishment, too. If you somehow missed the game, check out our review.
