Web developers were able to embed the game on their own site because of a button underneath the game providing the HTML code to do so, but in reality only the game's loader would be copied to the other site, while the actual game content would stay on the Wonka website where it was eventually deleted. Primary Games, Fetchfido and FreeGameZone had the game on their websites, but again it was only a loader. Many other Wonka games were made available on the Left Brain Games website after being removed from the Wonka website and, as such, are still playable - but this one was not.
FreeGameZone supposedly offered a downloadable version of the game, but this wasn't a proper Projector - rather, this was just the loader embedded onto an HTML page and packaged in a compressed zipped file. This still would have required an internet connection to fetch the real game content from the Wonka website, and isn't any help in finding the game.
According to an archive of Fetchfido, the game was 384 KB in size. The game content itself was not captured at its original location on the Wonka website by the Wayback Machine.
The game consisted of eight jigsaw puzzles themed after different flavours of Laffy Taffy, each associated with a colour: Sour Green Apple (light green,) Strawberry (pink,) Grape (purple,) Banana (yellow,) Watermelon (green,) Blue Raspberry (blue,) Cherry (red) and Fruit Punch (light blue.) The puzzle pieces swayed around and only stood still when you put them in place and finished the puzzle. There was a time limit to completing the puzzles. The puzzles were not unlocked in order - rather, they were all accessible at the start of the game. There were lots of sound effects, and the game shared the same bright artstyle that other Wonka games on the website had - in fact, the flavours have the same character designs as in the Laffy Taffy 3D Pyramid game, which was also on the same Wonka website.
The description of the game from Primary Games, via Wayback Machine, was "These aren't your ordinary puzzles...they're moving! Choose one of the 8 puzzles and then click and drag the moving puzzle piece to the right side (if you can get it!)."
