If I could have three wishes, one of them would be to have a horse. As a little girl growing up in San Diego I wanted a pony (not easy in the big city).
As a teenager I wanted a horse. The closest I ever got until now was the petting zoo. Now, as a Mac user, I’m an official equestrian princess, the Queen of Competition, the mistress of an enchanted ride through a virtual world of horseback.
City Girl Slicker On A Mac
If you think the petting zoo doesn’t cut it for a would-be horse riding distressed damsel, it’s worse on a Mac. Oh, but if I could awaken on a planet with only horses for transportation and adventure.
Well, dear horse lover, your Mac to the rescue.
Planet Horse is a Mac app that does the impossible.
Mount a mighty virtual on-screen steed and gallop through forests and deserts and adventures, oh my! Choose your horse. Choose your adventure.
You see where this is going, right?
Planet Horse is just for horse lovers and Mac users. It’s one thing to mount up and gallop through the wild west, it’s yet another to enter a competition where you can actually win and not get trampled.
For a horse lover, Planet Horse is fun and inexpensive.
Your horse can take you through the western desert, into luscious forests, or a competitive event where it’s you and your virtual horse against the world.
Planet Horse also features something that’s become a trend among Mac gamers.
Lower prices. Maybe it’s an iPhone games halo effect.
Games for the iPhone are free to $2.99 (sometimes more, but not often). And there are thousands from which to choose.
Mac games have ranged for years from $9.99 to $29.99, but the trend today is decidedly downward.
Insert applause here.
Planet Horse can be ridden free for an hour but the unlimited version is less than most Mac virtual reality games. It’s also a good way to have your kids learn about the joy of horse riding without the horse or the riding.
