Cute idea mirroring the movie, but there's hardly anything to do :)

Is this a PC or a browser game?

I guess browser. It's available on the link in the the synopsis.

...so we should update the platform, but I'm not sure to what. I looked at the page's source code and spotted Javascript in a few places.

Does browser count as a platform? I'm happy with PC where it was originally conceived (albeit to look like a spectrum game) and Spectrum which it was ported to by Einar (with permission ) to make it even more realistic. I've played both. Almost exact gameplay).
