*thanks to Bluemoon Interactive for making this game available as freeware and doh123's OSXDosboxWrapper*

Description (from MobyGames and Wikipedia):
Pilot your starglider on a "road" through space, avoiding obstacles and holes along the way, and without running out of fuel or oxygen. Full version includes 30 roads in 10 areas.
The game's interface was an instant hit with downloaders. The spacebar and up/down/left/right keys were used to create an easy "jump and move" motion. Up made the ship go faster, down made the ship go slower. Meters at the bottom indicate your ship's speed, Oxygen Levels, and Fuel Levels. The meter to the left indicates how far you are into the level, next to a grav-o-meter that describes the planet's gravity (100 is the lowest, giving a weightless feeling, and 1700 is the highest, allowing no jumping.) Obstacles exist in your path, which, if run into at any speed above very low, will cause your ship to explode. Also, if your ship does not land on a road, it will drift off into space forever. If your ship runs out of fuel or oxygen, your game is over.
The demo and full versions of both games are now available for download as freeware from the homepage of Bluemoon Interactive.

This game is ADDICTIVE!
awesome! I played the hell out of this game back in the day. I think I still have an old floppy disk with a copy of it somewhere... that's how much I wanted to keep it around. But this is much better. Thanks!
