Steps to reproduce
- Open Pitfall on the Internet Arcade
- Click the “load” button (the green button in the center)
- Once the character is visible, press left and right, Ctrl to jump.
This works perfectly in Firefox 47, Chrome 51, and Safari 9. In Edge 14 (14366 RS1), however, the keys stick and are highly unresponsive. (Using a normal keyboard, not a gamepad.)
If you press left once, then the character remains stuck moving left. You’re also unable to press left/right and Ctrl at the same time, i.e. to do a running jump. Instead you have to stop moving and then jump, in which case you jump straight up.
The game is essentially unplayable on Edge, whereas it works swimmingly in the other three browsers.
Comments and activity
Interestingly, the bug cannot be reproduced in IE11. In IE11, Pitfall is perfectly playable, although it’s pretty sluggish.
This bug also cannot be reproduced in Edge 13.10586.

This also appears to affect Construct 2 games. See the following reports:
Same problem in Phaser http://www.html5gamedevs.com/topic/25516-keyboard-input-microsoft-edge/
This bug also occurs in RPGMakerMV games!
It’s a fatal situation for ALL HTML5 games.
Fix with the highest priority!!!
