DOS - 1993
Description of SkyRoads
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 :)

OH GOD THIS GAME FINALLY!!!
I so remember playing this game way back in summer of 2001, with Need For Speed 2 SE on my Windows 98 PC. Had been looking for the game for more than a decade honestly.

This classic brings back so many fond memories of playing DOS with my friends back in the Day Care Days. We spent hours on this & Tank Wars as well. Beautiful Times!

I am not sure that I finished this one or my brother did but I am sure this one had depressed me a lot. Haha. I feel thanks to the developer who gave me such wonderful times :)

"RAMU BAYA:SOOOOOO BORING"?!?!?!? WTF This game is one the best MS-Dos Classics I used to spend hours playing just the demo as a kid
and to those of that have trouble loading a 16-Bit MS-Dos application on a 32-Bit or 64-Bit Operating System go research dosbox actually research what it does don't just use it you'll do yourself a big favor by understanding that a 32/64-Bit OS can't run 16-Bit applications

Boring!?!?! No way.. Skyroads was an absolute classic. Very challenging game. I've spent many hours on this one back in the 90's and also in more recent years. Classic.
