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

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
