This is a simple quiz game that covers different areas of astronomy. The questions will test your basic knowledge, but people that are not really into astronomy will surely learn something new. Some questions are quite easy and their answers well-known, while others will make you think for a while. You select one of the three possible answers. If your answer is incorrect, you'll see which answer was the right one.
Every time you play, you will have to answer 50 random questions. Every correct answer wins you a point, and every wrong answer costs you one bonus mark. For every five correct answers, you get one bonus mark. At the end of the game, you also get points for each bonus mark you have left. Each new game will contain some new questions, although they will mostly be the same.
The game will be very useful to people who don't know much about astronomy and to children that want to learn some basics. Play the quiz several times and you will slowly memorize the correct answers. Besides testing your knowledge, it may be interesting to test this kind of game after a while to see whether the answers are still correct. Have fun while learning.

Dear Abandonia visitors: We are a small team that runs one of the largest DOS Games websites in the world. We have only 3 members of staff, but serve 450,000 users and have outgoing costs like any other top site for example: our servers, power, rent, programs, and staff. Abandonia is something special. It is a library of old games for you to download. It is like an old gaming arcade with all the old games in their original format. Abandonia is a place where you can find great old games and have fun four hours and years. To protect our independence, we are dependent of our friends using the site. We run on donations averaging around 6 USD (5 Euro). If everyone reading this gave the price of a cup of coffee, our fundraiser would be made easier. If Abandonia is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online for another year. Please help us forget fundraising and get back to Abandonia.
