Underneath Autonauts‘ cute visuals and tongue in cheek tutorials there’s a surprisingly complex simulation game that is a joy to play for both seasoned veterans of the genre and total newbies who’ve never touched a management title.

Autonauts is a fantastic little base-builder that gives players the chance to build and program their own robots. As players progress, the hands off approach may not appeal to everyone, but the ability to make your robots as simple or as complex as you want opens up the game for many hours of fun.

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.

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.

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.

I sincerely enjoyed my time with Autonauts and could see anyone from a pro programmer to someone with zero experience having a good time with this game.

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.

Autonauts does what it intends to do really well. However, there are no substantial innovations to make it stand apart from other giants of this genre. It will serve some fun for the fans, especially if they are looking for a new contender in the construction subgenre.
