we have a video encoding and review to be posted when the video is up.

Bottom line: it's very well done. if you think you'd like this sort of game, then you'll like Glyder. The genre isn't for everyone though.

Since we are talking about the developer of Glyder as being Glu, here is a preview video of upcoming games (except for Build a lot which is already out) that includes Glyder. Cooking Star should be out very soon.

Beautiful graphics, lots of unlockables and tons of achievements and stat tracking is a nice touch. The controls are so damn well done this game is really, really nice. The animations are excellently rendered as well.

One question to Glu Mobile though: Why didn't you include tilt calibration?!? besides this omission this is an awesome adventure.

My Goodness, Glyder is BEAUTIFUL!! The graphics in that long video Arn posted looked amazing. The music actually lulled me into a state of relaxation. Gameplay looks great. Very polished looking game. Never seen a game in the app store like this one. Wow..
