Greetings Glider fans! Well, it is 2014, and I have ported my old Glider game from 1997 over to Android for you to play on your current devices! The game is basically the same as before, I wrote an ANSI terminal emulator for Android to run the game's original C code pretty much unmodified via the NDK. You can use the touch screen controls on a mobile or tablet to emulate the arrow keys, and touch in the center to select. On an Android Wear device, you can touch the display on the edges to emulate the arrow keys. The wearable also allows you to tilt the device to emulate the arrow keys. If you have a game controller or TV then the game supports those controls as well.This is *really* old messy code that I wrote back when I was learning to program in C back in 1996. It was designed to run on text terminals over slow serial connections in my university Unix labs, which is why the graphics are the way they are! :)Here are some links to the original game this is based on, written by John Calhoun back in 1990:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8F3oUr2QPQ0https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/glider/id482536700?mt=12http://www.vectronicsappleworld.com/macintosh/glider.htmlSource code is available under GPLv3 here: https://github.com/waynepiekarski/android-glider
