The game “Pirates Love Daisies” was developed by Grant Skinner for Microsoft’s Internet Explorer team. Skinner usually develops Flash applications and is, in fact, among the most prominent Flash developers on the planet. This time, however, Microsoft asked him to work with HTML5 and only HTML5. The result is a tower defense strategy game that is buggy at advanced levels, according to my 9-year old tower defense expert at home, but that is just as captivating as Flash based tower defense games. The controls are similar and the graphics, while always a matter of taste, appeared to be slightly more sophisticated in their effects than your average tower defense game.
