What's New in Version 1.0.1
Added a Quit button for those new to Mac OS apps.
There's not too much to say about Glider that you can't get from the description or screenshots. Its plays fine with good controls and is great for a 5 minute distraction, especially for a buck. The graphics do thier best to look retro without looking cheap, and for the most part succeed. Still, I can't help but think that you could keep the graphics simple and true to the originals spirit but make the animation smoother/more modern, which would make the game a lot more visually stimulating to me. No regrets getting this, just thought it could look better and still look retro.
Got my favorite game back!
I had downloaded Glider PRO from the developer's website - and was no longer able to play it once I upgraded to Mac OS Tiger. I was sad and wanted to find out how to uninstall Tiger but I couldn't find out how. I am so glad to have found this game and it is well worth more that 99 cents for this game I enjoyed as a teenager and my dad enjoyed for decades...
Like an old friend.
If they allowed half stars, I would give it four and a half.
I first played this as a black-and-white game. It combines a physics game and a puzzle. Nice, amiable pacing, and no gruesome violence. A player who likes a fast-paced game would be disappointed, but my fumble fingers wouldn't keep up with it.
If I would change anything, it would be to bring back your choice of glider models.
