Review of 'Astronut'

Rating:3 User: ABU

You play an astronaut who has to move 3 boxes to positions on the bottom level using gravity against the clock. You can’t jump or fly, so you hitch a ride on erupting volcanoes which move you up levels, and you have to time these to miss or catch extending platforms. Various baddies shoot at you or patrol the levels and your only defence are bombs that have a delay to allow you to get clear. Graphically it’s ok and colourful, though the constant noise during play (it’s not a tune) gets a bit annoying. You can play any of the 15 levels which kills a bit of the addictiveness for me. It’s not bad, but it has similarities to the better Jetpac and I found it a bit easy for my liking
