A while ago I reviewed SkyRoads under Virtual PC – however I missed the predecessor to SkyRoads: Kosmonaut. This game was released in 1990 and plays very similarly to its successor. The graphics are slightly less polished but interestingly the levels are a lot harder.
Indeed – after spending about an hour playing it last night I only just managed to get to the end of the third level.
Another interesting thing is that this game supports both keyboard and mouse control – and I found both to be relatively playable (though I prefer using the keyboard).
This game runs perfectly under Virtual PC – and you can download the full version for free from here: http://www.bluemoon.ee/history/kosmonaut/index.html
