I am happy to inform you that the free Hover! (Windows 95) for Mac has been added to Porting Kit! Who doesn’t know this this old classic on the Windows 95 machines? I remember when we got out Pentium 100 in the end of the nineties which included this game. Never though I would play this classic again (didn’t remember the name of the game) until I recently saw it again. I thought, this classic should added to Porting Kit just as I did with the classic Pinball game “Space Cadet“, (which is also freely available in Porting Kit) because these games are still very popular.
Basic Portingkit Install Instructions free games:

3. After installation, exit the installer (don’t run launch the game).
4. Porting kit will say it has finished successfully.
5. Go to your local library tab and select the game and click “play”!
6. Enjoy the game!
For each level, Hover! will cycle through each of the three mazes, or randomly select one (if that option is set). The goal of each level is to capture all of the blue flags hidden throughout the level (playing as the red hovercraft), before the opposing (blue) team collects all of the red flags. A game starts with having 3 red flags and 3 blue flags in each level, but will go up to 6 flags of each color in higher levels. Higher levels also have more opposing hovercraft and a more difficult AI.
The opponent hovercraft are split into two groups: One group acts as the capture team, trying to secure all the red flags before the player collects all the blue flags, while the other group serves as the protection for the capture team, trying to defend their flags and prevent the player from interfering with the capture team’s efforts. If one of those hovercraft see the player, a tone will sound, like a sonar ping, indicating they’ve seen him and will move to attack.
