A wizard is mixing up a batch of magic potions, when an explosion sends the gloves off his hands flying into the air. One lands safetly outside the castle, but the other lands in an evil potion mixture. It's this evil glove that decides to take over the castle. Meanwhile, 7 crystals, which used to sit on top of the castle and gave the surrounding lands its life force, also fly off in all directions. Thankfully, though, the good Glove changes the crystals into rubber balls, so that they would land safely.
You must control the good glove (name Glover) and find the 7 crystals, putting them back into the castle to restore the life back into the land. But be careful, the bad glove is out to stop you and take the kingdom, and the wizards power, for his own.
A sequel was in development by the same team behind the original game but was cancelled by publisher Hasbro because of the sales of Glover. While actually being a successful third-party Nintendo 64 game, Hasbro had ordered 300,000 copies instead of the 150,000 the developer had advised them to as Nintendo had a discount on N64 carts around that time. With retailers not wanting to take off that kind of stock, Hasbro had to take the hit which led to the cancellation of Glover 2.
