Stellar Xpress got started as an attempt to convert SkyRoads into a
3D game. After developing it for about half a year, we managed to
sell it to a VR gear manufacturer as a demo to be bundled with
their hardware, and the original plans for SkyRoads conversion were
abandoned as the original SkyRoads gameplay could not be reproduced
in real 6 DOF 3D.

Note the nice lighting effects that were implemented by reprogramming the VGA palette. However, we do not recommend running it in DOS box under Windows because of hardware virtualization the constant palette reprogramming is slow as hell.
