About this game
Content Rating: Everyone
The Colonists is a settlement building game inspired by classic titles like The Settlers and the Anno series. You take control of a team of robots tasked with settling a newly-discovered planet, preparing the ground for an influx of inhabitants from their homeworld. You'll advance from the Stone Age to the Space Age as you build the infrastructure for your colony by constructing complex road, boat, train and drone transport systems. Harvest natural resources, set up farming and food production, sculpt the terrain to optimise your networks, conquer other settlements or trade with new allies. Explore, research, manage, tweak and refine to your heart's content!

If you play society building games and find yourself perfecting your city, you will likely enjoy The Colonist and appreciate ability to track every element of productivity. However, the game could have a greater potential on a mobile device, and as a player, I would have been more invested if there were a bit more customization options or stakes to my success.
This is a strategy city-building game that is designed to be easily appreciated by anyone, whether you are an expert or a beginner to the genre. It's adorable and packed with charm, so despite the fact that it suffers from lack of interesting content to consume once you've bested the campaign, it still provides a satisfying experience for those who've just picked it up.
Es ist ohnehin schon eine große Leistung, als winziges Team einen halbwegs anspruchsvollen Indietitel aus dem Hut zu zaubern. Wenn es dann noch einer ist, in dem derartig viele verschiedene Systeme nahtlos ineinandergreifen wie bei The Colonists, muss man davor definitiv den Hut ziehen.
