Buildanauts reviews and comments

Early access review clearly a scam, the game released on steam, a Maj and nothing more. Today the official website is dead and no news on steam, of course. Not to buy!

Early access review unfortunately the positive opinion that I had put in the beginning turns into negative, why will you tell me? Just because since its release no important update has been performed, I say no, I thought "saw that the game is in early aacès" that the dev were going to put us regular updates and no, the game is still in English while in the options we have French but still not translated. bcp of bugs to report but this has still not been corrected. It's really a shame to sell an popular so Cher game (15 euros) and that the dev does not shake to do something. to see in time but I think they sold us a game that will remain as it is today. Do not buy this product if you do not want to be made. Wait for the devs to wake up in the hope one day to have a finished game.

Early Access Review 11.12.18: No update for Months-seems dead ...-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------10.05.2017: This Guide http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=880009574 helped me a lot with the Controls, got into the Game well now. Now Recommend it to anyone who can at least speak a bit of English and is undeterred by deleted scores (by Updates). -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Had the Game in my Wish List for a long time and got it to me right away when it came into the EA. Buildanauts throws you into a Mincraft-like world. Without Introduction or Tool Tips, your first Missions can be seen. In the Belt you can easily find your way around and it should be clear to everyone that the Axe is to Woodfall and the Pickaxe To the Stone is Broken down. After that, though, things get complicated. The Tree menu is confusing and not labeled. By Controlling the Controls in the Options, however, I got a slight Idea of what to do. Unfortunately, in the German Translation, all Options are also in English. For me personally just a small Problem, for others maybe more. This Game should first get a Tutorial. The really grisly Terraforming should be revised as a matter of urgency, I have not been able to straighten Surfaces. I just only ever dug tunnels ... The Buttons in the Menus don't always react properly either, the Selection of Sub-menus fails and you suddenly have a tree toé a house toé something in your Hand. At this Stage, I can't recommend the Game yet. But The Idea is really good and I expect a really set-up management station wagon in the Future.
