Fly paper airplanes.

Overview

Glider... Fly a paper airplane through houses avoiding obstacles and collecting gold stars. Non-violent. A great game for children.

Note: The commercial version of Glider available in the MAS is an updated version of the classic Glider Pro application developed by John Calhoun. His classic version is still available for free and is linked to above as an alternate download.

This game is the love of my life. I've played it since I was four and it's still good. If you have kids put them on this before any of that violent crap and they'll grow up to be good people.

Another great game for children: fold a piece of paper into a paper airplane, and fly it around objects in the room! It's also over 100x cheaper than this silly game.

What I'm not getting is that this publisher's website, "softdorothy", doesn't mention the author's name and the AUTHOR'S website, http://homepage.mac.com/calhoun/Glider%20PRO.html states that Glider PRO is FREE with links to downloads for the OS X and OS 9 versions. You can play for free online as well since one Mark Arenz teamed up with Calhoun, the game's owner after Cassidy & Greene went under, to create a FREE, Flash-based version; http://www.ridiculopathy.com/games.php?gamename=glider

This game is not Glider Pro. I haven't tried it yet, but from the screenshot it looks like a reimagined version of the original black & white Glider 1.0 from the late 80's. I used to play that game on my dad's SE/30!

Just forgot to mention that "Soft Dorothy Software" was the (fake) publisher's name that calhoun used in the about box of the original Glider program. I don't believe it was used in any of the later versions. Also, calhoun has always been very modest about publicizing himself, putting his name in lower case and generally being hard to find anything out about. (According to Wikipedia, he's also currently working for Apple, which might have something to do with it.)

It's alive! Perhaps not free anymore (but for $1.99 - can you really complain?), but works on Lion, has high-res graphics, and is just generally awesome. Ahh, nostalgia is wonderful

Nice little game from the past but it tends to run a little jerky on my Intel MacPro with OS 10.7.2 and 7GB's of memory. Since this is only version 1.0 I'm hopeful it will improve.

No longer running on Mac OS X 10.7 since it's PPC only, but word is that it's coming to iOS. I can't wait. This one was one of my favorite games as a kid.

It makes me sad that Cassady and Greene needed to go bankrupt. They had Pieces of the best mac software EVER. And im just glad to see this again on my OSX - Even free!

I've been playing this since childhood, on an old LC II, but know it's for OSX! This is great guys, you should at least try it. (I still have the floppy discs from the old version!)
