Critic Reviews for Autonauts

There's plenty to do in this exciting and empowering simulation game, where automation is the key to your shining future

Autonauts is a colourful, creative and energetic game of automation and colonisation, whose cute facade is home to some truly engaging coding that never gets too complex.

I found Autonauts to be tedious at first, then really fun, then exhausting. It's a fun challenge, but in the end, I just wanted to build a robot to tell all the others what to do so I could sit down and read a book.

While a bit simplistic in some ways, the simplicity of Autonauts lends itself beautifully to engaging gameplay and fun to all who play it.

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.
