Celestrion (Steam VR)
Intro: Play inside your very own Orrery, a working heliocentric 3d model of our solar system. Learn the basic facts about each of the planets, and witness them and their moons up close in accurate orbital relation to each other.
Review: Celestrion is pretty much what you might expect, a virtual orrery. This digital model of the solar system illustrates the relative positions and motions of the planets and moons according to the heliocentric model (basically a working heliocentric 3d model of our solar system). It is designed to help teach basic facts and understanding about each planet and their rotation of moons. You get to see them all moving up close and in true accurate orbital relation to each other unlike many other solar system apps like Titans Of Space 2.0.
Verdict: The problem is the VR aspect of this game simply doesn’t work and even on the 2D screen there are no control options or instructions! It literally is a guess the buttons game. So sadly we can’t really make a constructive review of it, but if things change we will come back to it and take another look. So if you are thinking of downloading this app for the VR aspect, don’t bother, it’s broken with no signs of that changing anytime soon.
