Description

A port of a Macintosh title, Glider puts you in the role of a paper airplane in its quest to find an open window and exit the house he's trapped on.

You have a rudimentary control of the plane (remember it's a paper plane) and must try to get through room after room of the house by riding currents of hot air, fans, etc. and avoiding danger in the form of balloons, furniture, paper shredders, etc. You can collect a series of power ups such as speed boosts, rubber bands (to shoot enemies with) folded paper (as lives) , etc.
