Critic Reviews for Autonauts
Autonauts is all about building and making things efficient. There's almost no story but the game play alone is a unique and lovely experience. I wish tutorials were a little more efficient like the game play itself, but overall Autonauts is a creative and fun title.

A neat automation game that's well built with plenty of depth to keep you going for quite some time, and this is only "Phase 1". The programming aspect is similar to that of the Scratch programming language, and can teach basic programming principles with its visual code builder and "follow me" initial recording of the robots.
It is a shame that Autonauts has a notable bug that rapidly reduced enjoyment and led to a premature end of the game. The style and concept are well executed, allowing many approaches to completing progression goals that are so numerous completionists will be in heaven. Creating and replacing tools as they break is an acceptable part of the game, but constantly having to stop and start robots in their actions because of an inexplicable error loses the whole automated process that is central to Autonauts' functionality.
Despite its cartoony graphics, this game is a surprisingly solid city builder. There is enough here that fans of the various genres this takes from will find it enjoyable as they craft their ever-growing city and automation empire. Programming the robots is oddly satisfying as is watching them roll around and taking care of the smaller tasks. A couple of small bugs and some pacing issues prevent it from being truly great, but those remotely interested in the genre will definitely have a lot of fun with this one.
