Flash row over HTML5 Cut the Rope

On iOS, Cut the Rope is pretty much a permanent fixture in the games charts, and millions of people attempt to feed greedy green blob Om Nom myriad pieces of candy until, presumably, he keels over from a sugar overdose. Earlier this week, the game made its way on to the internet, developed by Pixel Lab, and backed by Microsoft.

The game came under fire from some quarters; for example, Creative Coder Seb Lee-Delisle remarked in a blog post that the game's making-of video "comes across as a somewhat contrived Microsoft advert", and that some levels were locked to IE – although he did praise Microsoft in general: "IE seems to have the fastest 2D canvas implementation. It's also really interesting to see Microsoft actively promoting JavaScript as a core language for creating apps."
