Popular video game ‘Cut the Rope’ is being made available free for desktop users as its creator Zepto Labs has fine-tuned the game for Internet Explorer 9, with the help of HTML 5.
Originally an iPhone and Andorid game since its launch on iOS back in 2010, it can now also be booted with Firefox or Google’s Chrome, apart from the Explorer.
Microsoft announced about the latest game – a regular feature among App-store chart-toppers will be available free for Internet Explorer E9 users – during its keynote at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show.
Microsoft Internet Explorer’s lead of UK Gabby Hegarty gave further details, saying Zepto Lab and Pixo Lab worked on the modern browser version for the game, with advanced levels of the game available only to Internet Explorer 9 users.
ZeptoLab creative director Semyon Vionov said that a set of levels had been designated only for the Internet Explorer users.
"The first 18 levels are open to anyone, but the final 7 levels are open only to Internet Explorer 9 users and to unlock you need to pin the game to the Windows 7 taskbar," added Hegarty.
In the game, a player has to make moves to feed the frog a candy by dragging the cursor to cut a bunch of ropes.
