Remember Cut the Rope for the web browser that Microsoft brought last January? Well, this popular game is now optimized for Internet Explorer 10 and also available at the Windows 8 Store to provide us with the multi-touch gaming experience smartphones and tablets are enjoying.
Microsoft partnered with Russian app developer company ZeptoLab to bring Cut the Rope and other games such as Contre Jour and Atari to “œprovide users with the best gaming experience possible, whether at home with their PCs or on the go with their mobile devices”. This is according to Joben Rara, a Technical Evangelist from Microsoft Philippines.
Cut the Rope (if you still need an introduction) is an app downloaded more than 60 million times by tablet and mobile users. The objective of the game is to feed a little monster called Om Nom with the candy hanging by ropes which must be cut by swiping your finger or clicking and dragging on your mouse, depending on what device you are using.
We also met with Giorgio Sardo, the Director of the Windows Evangelism group of Microsoft – Redmond, Washington. He said that “œGamers can play Cut the Rope through Internet Explorer 10 or through downloading it from the Windows Store for free for a totally re-imagined gaming experience that is fast, fluid and easily accessible through PC and mobile.”
Experience it yourself! Play the game at http://www.cuttherope.ie which is now best played with your Windows 8 touch-enabled PC.
