Redmond-based software giant Microsoft and game developer Zeptolab have a pleasant surprise for all of you who like to play games in your browser’s window – perhaps when you take a quick break or when you just want to kill some time. The surprise is that a HTML5-built version of the popular Cut the Rope game has been released to the web. You can play 25 levels of the Cut the Rope game in your HTML5-enabled browser here.

Microsoft of course recommends you play it in IE9, but the thing is that the game also works in Firefox, Chrome or Opera. Any modern browser with HTML5 capabilities will do.

There is one incentive for you to play the game in Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 9 (IE9) browser though. That incentive is that if you pin Cut the Rope to your Windows 7 taskbar, IE9 takes on the look and geel of the game; and on top of that it unlocks 7 levels that are not found in any versions of Cut the Rope.

Speaking of versions of Cut the Rope, the game is quite popular on iOS and Android – the game has been downloaded over 60 million times. If you’re not familiar with the game or the story behind it, here’s the lowdown. The story is that you find a mysterious package on your doorstep. On the package there’s a letter that says “feed with candy.” When you open the package you notice there’s this green, big-eyed creature inside. The creature is called On Nom and you must take care of it.

The goal in the game is to keep Om Nom happy (you do that by feeding it candy) and to get stars (the candy must touch the stars). The candy is tied with strings and what you have to do is cut the strings in such a way that you get the stars and get the candy down to On Nom.

The bottom line is that Microsoft worked with Developer Zeptolab and built a Cut the Rope version using HTML5. The game can be played in any modern HTML5-enabled browser; 25 levels are free to try right now, more levels will come in the future. If you play the game with Microsoft’s IE9 and pin Cut the Rope to the Windows 7 taskbar, you will unlock 7 unique levels. Facebook and Twitter are integrated in the game, which means you can share your Cut the Rope experience with your friends.
