Glyder ia a beautiful adventurous game which will captivate you with its stylish gameplay and freedom to fly over magical lands.

The objective of this game is to guide Eryn through dimensional rifts and collecting crystals to open the portal home.

The game begins with you choosing your first destination and then you enter a magical land. Tap the screen to start your flight and tilt your iPhone/iPod touch left or right to turn. Glu has has paid close attention to key elements of a flight which are speed and altitude. While you are flying you need to maintain your speed by diving and rising again. In order to soar higher you need to flap your wings by titling your device forward and backward or use the thermal vents.

As you fly though the dimensional rifts you need to collect crystals, these can be collected by flying over them at a low altitude. During your journey you can also choose to complete Trips (get from one place to another in the shortest time) and gain Achievements (Follow the ledge, Blind Diving, Crazy Fast etc.)

Glyder also offers complete freedom to fly to any destination within the game which is absolutely amazing. The replay value for this game is very high as you try to unlock all achievements and improve your statistics.

    Glyder is a GREAT game, and one which has proven to be one of my (if not *the*) favorite application on my iPhone. Great, relaxing gameplay; gorgeous graphics; spot-on soundtrack and sound effects; and very-compelling achievements – leading to a desire for 'just one more try' – result in a near-perfect game. Everyone owes it to themselves to at least check it out.

    (one correction: The maximum altitude which is attainable in the game is 5.5 km; I think you meant “2.6 km” for the stats which accompany this article)
