Still, most of the puzzles are fairly easy if you like, or know something about, Astronomy, but getting around can be frustrating until you figure out how to navigate. Sal adds an extra level of frustration. If you can't figure out where to hide or what to do to distract him, you'll be thrown out again and again, until it feels as if you are beating your head against a very hard wall. If you do persevere, though, you will find yourself knowing a thing or two about Astronomy.

Remember the first time you went to the planetarium? You marveled as you peered into space, but after a few minutes you'd seen enough and wanted to grab a Popsicle, right? The same is true of Astronomica, which begins as an intriguing search for a missing astronomer but devolves into a series of weightless puzzles about space trivia. In most cases you figure out the answer through trial and error, not through a better understanding of astronomy. Ultimately, Astronomica does little more than familiarize players with basic space terms. Despite some sloppy production values (such as the director's audible ''Action!''), the game does offer a reference encyclopedia and detailed planetary photographs science buffs will appreciate.

Pusslen suger i bästa fall duktigt; för det mesta är de totalt obegripliga. Vem skulle till exempel komma på tanken att spela baseball i ett svart hål? Spartips: låna en bok av Isaac Asimov istället. Billigare - och mer spännande.
