Glu Mobile, you assume the role of girl with a pair of huge wings used to fly (or glide) around a fully 3D environment all while collecting different color gems and performing challenges. As you progress, you acquire new wings and outfits which affect your six flying stats including speed, lift, power, turn, stall, and dive.
I was pleasantly surprised to find such a graphic intensive game on my phone and better yet, it runs amazingly smooth as you're flying from island to island discovering new locations. You control your character by tilting the phone forward, backwards, and side to side which does take a little getting used to, but once you get the hang of it, it becomes much easier. The inclusion of an achievement system adds to the whole experience seeing as there is no real end goal but just a sense of accomplishment when you locate that one item you've been looking for or finally beat the challenge you've been attempting for the last couple of hours. All in all, Glyder 2 is a surprising little gem with some amazing graphics that will keep you busy for a good long time.
