Microsoft launched an HTML5 version of the popular Cut the Rope game with 25 levels now available online for free. "With the power of HTML5, IE9 and Windows, experiences that were once limited to applications are now coming to life across the web," Microsoft said.
The game is created by ZeptoLab, and the concept behind the game is simple: "Om Nom, a curiously cute green monster, is hungry, and you can use your mouse to manipulate ropes, airbags and bubbles to feed him candy, and collect stars along the way for more points. It's wonderfully addictive, downloaded over 60 million times to date, so consider this fair warning for all of you that are new to the game," Microsoft revealed.
"With modern Windows 7 PCs and the hardware acceleration enabled in IE9 the game looks and feels just as rich and immersive as the original app. And when you pin Cut the Rope to your Windows 7 taskbar IE9 takes on the look and feel of the game and unlocks unique levels not found in any previous versions of Cut the Rope, giving you a full Om Nom candy eating experience."
The game is integrated with Facebook and Twitter, so you can share your sweet success feeding Om Nom with your friends!
ZeptoLab promises to bring more levels to play.
