Apple Features Fly! II, Kids & Learning
8:29 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

The good folks at Apple have been busy recently with the ever-popular Apple games page. In addition to adding some new design features to call out recent changes to the page, Apple has posted an article featuring MacSoft's Fly! II as well as a feature entitled "Kids & Learning."


If you're into flying on your computer, you'll want to check out Apple's take on Fly! II. Here's a snippet from the article:

Actually, we should let you in on a technicality: Fly! II isn’t really a game. It’s more of an open-ended experience that allows you to decide how long you will play. There’s no way to win or lose, so load it on your PowerBook and take it with you on the road for some flights of fancy when business trips get boring.


“I’m not a pilot,” says MacSoft product manager Al Schilling, “but I have had the occasional opportunity to take the yoke while in a small plane. There’s something about it that just gives you a very cool feeling, and Fly! II does an amazing job of capturing that feeling.”

Kids & Learning highlights the best in fun and edutainment games for kids available on Mac OS X. In addition to covering educational titles, the article also includes entertainment titles that most kids can play, such as Captain Bumber and Otto Matic.


And finally, the Apple games page site now includes a new graphic tile called "Theater Presentations", which feature upcoming game presentations in Apple stores. The first
presentations/demonstrations are both of games from Aspyr: The Sims and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2. Be sure to check the schedule as new dates and locations will be added weekly.
