Summary

A terrible maps pack.

The Good

It's the same old SkyRoads, the good ol' game of jumping and accelerating.

The Bad

The new maps are a pain in the kisser. Some of them will require dozens and dozens of retries till you find that one missing fuel tile or manage to jump on the right moment while on full speed.
Some of the new maps are a COMPLETE disaster, and consist of several parts that each one will require dozens and dozens of retries till you solve them. Unlike the previous game, I gave up and finished only 27 of the 30 maps.

The Bottom Line

Unless you want to take this game is a personal project and waste a couple of weeks finishing all of the levels, just test it out and then return to the original classic.
