Cut the Rope in HTML5

Cut the Rope

This is pretty neat, and a good promotion from the IE team. To help promote the platform preview, they’ve recreated the popular iOS game Cut the Rope in HTML5.

Even more interesting though, is the entire subsite dedicated to development of the game. To develop the game, the Objective-C was ported to JavaScript and the graphics from OpenGL to canvas. There are lot of details on how the performance was adjusted, and also a lot of information on the (IE) tools used in development.

In contrast to many overall Microsoft marketing efforts, the IE team is really coming together.
