App Store Top Ten: Week of October 18, 2010

Cut The Rope’s OmNom is still gobbling up sales, and spent another week at the top of the charts. We love this little guy, and spoke to two of his creators, Efim and Semyon, in a pair of interviews. Angry Birds isn’t far behind at #2, though, and this week has some other surprises like Trainyard, Cartoon Wars 2, and Robot Unicorn Attack Heavy Metal Edition hitting the charts. Read on for the full results.

#1: Cut the Rope

Our Score: 4/4

Our Bottom Line: Cut the Rope is a charming, challenging, and– most importantly– fun puzzle game that nearly anyone will enjoy.

Our Score: 2/4
