End-of-day diversion: Glider Pro X


Way back in 1994 I was completely addicted to Glider Pro. For those unfamiliar with the game, it required you to fly a virtual paper airplane through a virtual house while avoiding obstacles like spinning fans, heating vents, know, stuff that's dangerous to a paper airplane. Once you got bored with the supplied houses, you could create your own with the house editor. Like I said, completely addicted.

Tonight, completely on a nostalgia-fueled whim, I set Google after "Glider Pro," and lo and behold it's been ported to OS X...and it's free! This is probably old news, but I had no idea. The house editor is still OS 9 only, but several additional houses have been made available by the game's developer. I know what I'll be doing for the next couple of hours.

This has got me thinking: What other classic games have been ported to OS X that I'm unaware of? Anyone know of some good ones?
