Game Review

Skyroads is a remake of the driving game Kosmonaut. Both games were made by Bluemoon, a small studio based in Estonia. The game was released in 1993 for PC MS-DOS only.

Compared to Kosmonaut, Skyroads is much more polished and it has better gameplay and graphics. It can be considered a driving game, not racing. There are no other vehicles seen on the roads. The vehicle the player is using is a star glider. There are 30 roads that are placed over 10 areas. The player has to either avoid or aim for different colored tiles to be able to complete the game. The end of the game comes when the glider is finally in space after going through a tunnel. The player also had to watch the amount of gravity that they are in. The glider could either be in a weightless environment or in will be so heavy there is no jumping.

Skyroads was released as shareware and became a big seller internationally. The game had one sequel and several clones over the years on multiple platforms. Both Kosmonaut and Skyroads have been released as freeware.
