Magic Box is the fourth box (previously the seventh) in Cut the Rope. It was released on April 5, 2011 as the seventh box but was changed to the fourth in a later update. New gameplay features include Magic Hats (although of which had a similar variant in Cut the Rope: Holiday Gift).

Notable Levels

Level 4-1 introduces Magic Hats that teleport Candy from one hat to another with the same color.

Level 4-3 introduces the concept that candy maintains it speed whilst teleporting. This level also contains the first hidden drawing for the box.

Level 4-4 includes two pairs of hats, much like the Blades, they are color-coded.

Level 4-21 contains the second and last hidden drawing of the box.

Level 4-25 makes the gameplay even more difficult by introducing moving magic hats. The player has to time his actions very carefully.

Level Design

Inside and out, the box has light blue stars spread everywhere on a darker blue background with two spotlights moving around the box slowly.

Changes in level design

Level 4-11 (changes in ver. 1.6): Complete remake of the level. Due to reordering of the boxes, the Gravity Changer Button had to be removed and replaced with a level of equal difficulty.



On completing the box, the player gets Magic Box Completed achievement. Getting three stars in each level gains Magic Box Perfect achievement.
