Behind the tech
Cut the Rope runs in Windows Internet Explorer 9 as an HTML5 application and has been ported from the original iOS (iPhone) source code.
The official ZeptoLab blog reveals a little bit more about the development process: "The end result is an authentic translation of the game for the web, showcasing some of the best that HTML5 has to offer: canvas-rendered
graphics, browser-based audio and video, CSS3 styling and the personality of WOFF fonts."
Microsoft showcased Cut the Rope as an app designed for Windows 8 last September (2011) at their BUILD developer conference. Steve Ballmer has announced that the beta version of Windows 8 will be available in late February 2012.
