Made for Internet Explorer?

Site does not work in FF4 on Ubuntu. That could be a fault in FF4, but considering past form it's probably proprietary and non-standards coding by Team MS.

Wakka wakka wakka wakka wakka.....

Sound is a bit flaky in Chromium on Debian but, regardless, I've still found a good way to lose my job! Back to munching pills then.

Made for Internet Explorer 9

Are we going back to the dark days of the internet when sites were tailored to specific browsers?

Well, that's the Easter weekend taken care of.

I didn't want to do anything productive anyway.

The Browser is required, and must contain IE9.

Doesn't work on FF 3.6 on Windows either.

So... who is going to do "proper" version?

It might as well not be a web page at all if it only works in one "browser".

FF 3.6 == HTML5

the HTML5 support in FF3.6 was pretty flakey... try in FF4 which has much better support

Works fine for me in Chrome and FF4 on PC and Mac

SRWare Iron

Seems to work fine in SRWare Iron (Google Chrome derivative). Certainly not IE9-only - just as well, since still hanging on to XP here and probably going penguin-wards next time.

Why wait

It does work in FF4.0.0 in windows. Just make sure you allow all in NoScript or whatever other blockers you're running. It's doozing! JUST DOOZING!

sheesh

I played a total of 15 minutes went through around 90 levels, and only found 2 that were decently designed.

majority I saw was people saying I LOVE YOU to some person, someone writing their name, or 1 way paths to death

I found one I would dib special kids pac man where the ghost could not get out of the start area cause the maker put a wall completely around it. So there was 0 chance you could die

Compatibility

Having done a bit more testing (and going on comments from friends who have tried) just about the only modern GUI browsers this flat out fails on are IE less than 9. As a marketing ploy by Microsoft, that's really rather poor, since the only people unable to play it will be people who will default-upgrade to IE9 in due course anyway. Yes, it reaches the target market well, but does nothing to expand it.
