Microsoft, together with ZeptoLab and Pixel Lab, has created an HTML5 version of of the popular game, which you can play for free on any major browser.

The free game includes 27 levels, and you can play it right now simply by pointing your browser to CutTheRope.ie. As mentioned, the game was developed entirely in HTML5, no Flash in sight (ideally), and was made especially for playing on Microsoft’s flagship browser, Internet Explorer 9.

If pure HTML 5 sounds too good to be true, you’re probably right. As mentioned in a Behind the Scenes page made by the game’s developers, some media playback issues in Chrome and Firefox forced them to fall back on a Flash plugin for correct music and sound effects. I tried the game on Chrome, and while it worked well, even with Flash disabled (except for some minor audio bugs), it wouldn’t even load when all of my plugins were automatically blocked. This might be due to a bug in Chrome.

While the game works well in all browsers, some levels, which are unique to this version, can only be unlocked by pinning the game to the taskbar, an exclusive feature to Internet Explorer 9. So this might be a good a time as any to try IE9, if you haven’t done so yet.

Happy Om Nom Nomming!

Cannot play it on Win 7×64 Premium Home Edition with IE9.0.8112.16421. It says I need a new browser. Any idea why.

Strange, just triedn it on my PC (same setup as yours, same browser ) and worked fine. Didi try accessing it again? Maybe there was a temporary glitch?

It definitely should work on that setup. What exactly was the error message you got?

Weird! Did you try it in other browsers? It sounds as if you’re not actually using IE9, and therefore it’s not getting the HTML5 support it needs.

Maybe try upgrading IE to it’s latest build, if there is one?
