Glider, a classic game that long-time Mac users will recognize, is now available for iOS. You can download it from the App Store for 99 cents.

The game and its various forms (Glider Classic, Glider Pro, Glider Arcade…) originally launched in 1988, but stopped development just three years later. The simplicity of the game is what made it so addictive: navigate a paper airplane and avoid the obstacles at all costs.

The levels are called ‘houses,’ which provide the typical items found in a household to help you succeed.

The developer says the game may soon be available in the Mac App Store as well. The classic Glider Pro is available as a free download, but it requires a Mac with a PowerPC processor and won’t run on OS X Lion.
