Skyroads is a fun action game, where you must steer your rocket-propelled mobile capable of jumping through a track of floating panels, tunnels and obstacles. Special panels fuel your ship, speed or slow it or just plain destroy you. Graphics are made with neat, functional plain vectors-- it ain't fancy, but in some tracks the geometrical design and use of colours result in minimalistic beauty.

Sweet ole Adlib-music adds to the game's atmosphere, which in itself is consistent. Gameplay is well-though, balanced to be challenging but not too fustrating. Player has an unlimited supply of ships and a loss of one isn't really noted (you just have to restart the track), which is great since you really have to fail a couple of times before you can unravel the secrets of each track. Overall, Skyroads is highly recommended to anyone who likes arcade racing games. Two thumbs up!

Formerly shareware, the game has recently been released as freeware by its developer Bluemoon Interactive, along with the rare X-Mas edition, and early EGA version of the game called Kosmonaut. Three cheers to Bluemoon, and let's hope that more game companies will follow suit :)
