iOS development firm Chillingo has Friday released an update for the popular Cut the Rope game for iOS, bringing the game to version 2.3.

The update brings the game a new set of levels that players can try and tackle in an episode created around the theme of “Cheese Box.”

The levels have a background that looks like a hunk of cheese, and in the levels, Om Nom the candy-loving critter finds a new mouse friend. The mouse apparently enjoys playing with the candy just as much as Om Nom enjoys eating the candy, so the mouse will make it just a little more difficult for the player to get the candy to Om Nom, requiring speed and skills.

Existing players of Cut the Rope will find the update in the Updates tab of the App Store on their iOS devices. Alternatively, you can download the latest version of the game for the iPhone and iPod touch from this App Store link for 99¢, or the latest version of the iPad version of the game from this App Store link for $3.99.
