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.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.
“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.”
