Cut The Rope comes to PC via Internet Explorer 9

Popular smartphone and tablet game gets ported to the PC platform to show the versatility of Internet Explorer

ZeptoLab's popular puzzle, Cut The Rope, has made the leap from its original home on smartphones and tablets to the PC.

Harnessing the power of HTML5, Internet Explorer 9 and Windows 7, a free version of the popular game has been made available on the Internet.

Having already been downloaded over 60 million times on smartphones and tablets to date, Cut The Rope is a simple puzzle game where the goal is for the user to strategically cut ropes to feed a little monster (called Om Nom) with candy and collect stars.

According to Microsoft, the browser edition of the game has been made possible through the hardware acceleration found in the Internet Explorer 9 browser in Windows 7, enabling the game to look and feel as "rich and immersive" as the original app.

While the graphics and sound have made a full transition to the PC, interaction within the game, such as cutting the ropes, is now done with the mouse due to the lack of a touch screen.

The minimum requirement to run the game is a "modern web browser," though the Windows 7 and Internet Explorer 9 combination is expected to bring about the best experience.

For example, when played in Internet Explorer 9 on Windows 7, the game can be pinned to the taskbar for the browser to take on the look and feel of the game.

Cut The Rope for browsers comes with 25 levels for users to play with and can be accessed at: www.cuttherope.ie

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
