Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
A highly advanced, action-packed take on the classic space-shooter game, Pteroglider has heavy system requirements that may diminish its appeal for average users. Before launch, the game gives you configuration options for maximizing performance on your PC, but, in some of our tests, we couldn't get the program to run. Instead, clicking the launch icon took us to the developer's screen, which bugged us to buy the full version. We suspected our PC's graphics card wasn't up to snuff, but we would have liked a definitive explanation. Once we did get Pteroglider up and running, we were impressed with its stylish graphics and dynamic soundtrack. The primary goal is the same here as it is in similar games: You must use your weapons to defend yourself against enemy spacecraft. However, due to the sheer number of incoming foes, Pteroglider is more fast-paced and challenging than many competing titles. We think all fans of arcade shooters will have a blast with this game, but we implore you to first make sure your system can handle it.

Developer's Description

Pteroglider is a fun and innovative incarnation of the classic arcade space-shooter genre. It is aimed at players who enjoy dynamic and challenging games that are easy and fun to play, yet require a fair dose of skill to master. Contrary to most other arcade space-shooter games, Pteroglider does not limit your angle of fire to a straight, vertical line. Pteroglider features four themed stages: Nebula, Bio, Warp, and Ion Strom.
