Cut the Rope creators release a challenging platformer, King of Thieves

ZeptoLab, a Russian entertainment and gaming company best known for developing the Cut the Rope mobile franchise, today released its latest iOS game in the App Store, King of Thieves.

King of Thieves is a challenging platformer with elements of asynchronous player-vs-player multiplayer games in which you must steal other player's gold and gems undetected.

Game mechanics involve lots of leaping off walls, jumping, avoiding obstacles and what not. King of Thieves also incorporates some elements of tower defense games so give it a whirl if you're a fan of the genre.

Developer ZeptoLab, based out in Russia, has seen wild success following the release of its charming puzzler, Cut the Rope, [$0.99 for iPhone, $3.99 for iPad] in the App Store three years ago.

And in a repeat of 2010, the game is slated to debut as an iOS exclusive, featuring 120 levels, new characters and tweaked gameplay.
