Glider 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.

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

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.

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!)

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.

This game really brings back the memories. I love it! One of the best, original games ever created, unlike some of the 3D slop that's being released these days. Many thanks to John Calhoun to releasing this for free!

If you issue a GetInfo against the Glider Pro OS X version, you will see no version number specified in the GetInfo window. If you issue a GetInfo against the OS 9 version of Glider Pro, you will see that it is version 1.1.2. There is no version 9.

My version says it's Glider Pro 9. The demo mode which runs completely through the house is very nifty, but the one with the single room looks impossible to get the star. Where exactly are you supposed to enter the serial number (it must be a secret)? As a lifetime aficienado of paper airplanes, I can appreciate this whimsical game. Building the houses looks challenging, but how about a new version that lets you create your own airplanes? Looks like an enjoyable game, once you get the hang of it. Imaginative.

This game is not interesting, has bad graphics, has bad midi music, and is not difficult. Overall, this game is just a waste of time. Maybe it is good for children though, but doubt it.
