Few months back, Microsoft in partnership with Contre Jour creator Maksym (Max) Hryniv and Clarity Consulting ported the popular mobile game Contre Jour to the HTML5 web. Contre Jour worked great on Internet Explorer 10, thanks to its powerful hardware acceleration. Today, they are launching with 20 new levels to play on the web.
The New Friend World is a sweet treat for players, featuring beautiful new sunset themed levels that provide a beautiful background to Petit’s love story just in time for Valentine’s Day. These levels are exclusive to the Web and introduce a brand new character to join Petit, named Amie. Amie, French for “friend”, is a fluffy, vibrant and energetic partner-in-crime to Petit, and flies through the levels helping Petit on his journey to find his true love, The Rose.
The new Moonlight World looks more similar to the other Contre Jour worlds, and showcases the power of IE10 as a touch browser. Contre Jour was truly designed to be a touch-first game—in fact, it was the first game brought to the web that actually required multi-touch on certain levels.
You can play the game for yourself at www.contrejour.ie
