ZeptoLabs' iOS puzzle game Cut the Rope has sold over 3 million units on Apple's App Store, publisher Chillingo said Wednesday, just a few weeks after the title hit the 2 million-unit milestone.

The game, available for 99 cents on iPod Touch and iPhone and as the $1.99 Cut the Rope HD on the iPad, launched on the App Store October 5, selling 1 million units in its first ten days and 2 million units in less than a month.

ZeptoLabs also said today the game will receive its first free update with version 1.1, which adds new levels, enhanced graphics, new achievements and other improvements.

Cut the Rope is among the first titles published by Chillingo as a subsidiary of Electronic Arts, which acquired the company in October. Chillingo previously called Cut the Rope the "fastest-selling" title on the App Store.

Chillingo has previously published games including Angry Birds, Helsing's Fire, Predators, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs, Minigore, iDracula and Modern Conflict.

Cut the Rope is selling much faster than top sellers from earlier in the iOS' life cycle, such as Pocket God, which took a year after its January 2009 launch to reach 2 million App Store sales.
