AvaGlide is avatar-based title, developed by British indie studio Haiku Interactive and published on the Xbox Live Indie Games channel. It was released in 2010, and praised for its visuals and gameplay.[1]

Gameplay[edit]

AvaGlide uses a player's Xbox avatar in a series of hang-gliding minigames. Three minigames include navigating the glider through rings to collect points and time bonuses, hitting targets with crates dropped while gliding, and a course to collect as many points as possible. Multiplayer functionality is enabled.

Graphics rendering[edit]

AvaGlide uses the SunBurn XNA Game Engine (by Synapse Gaming) and a professional physics library, producing detailed textures and real-time shadows. The physics engine enables smooth gliding, complete with wind gusts and speed regulation that add dimension to the challenges.
