Description from the packaging.

The arcade action classic of the decade.

You are a plane. An extremely precise, aerodynamically designed, meticulously folded, paper airplane. The kind every high school substitute teacher has nightmares about. Only better. The best, in fact.

Your mission: Navigate the harrowing pitfalls of the common household. One room at a time. Seemingly innocuous items like a bouncing basketball, burning candle, or leaky ceiling can mean total and complete destruction for you. And don't even begin to think the furniture is safe either, because it is not. A chance collision with a bookshelf or cabinet will have disastrous consequences.

Don't forget: Air is good. Obstacles are bad. To make it to the next room, you will have to position yourself over the air vents without getting caught in a cross draft or destroyed by an obstacle. By the way, there are 480 rooms throughout 8 houses, each of which get increasingly more difficult. Along the way, you can pick things up like rubber bands to defend yourself and if you're lucky, batteries for additional power.

Remember: Few things can survive without air. You're not one of them.
