Each level acts like an on/off switch. When you tap the screen, pieces of the level move or tilt. Tapping once again resets those pieces back to their position. You need to tap at the right times to make sure your ball doesn't fall down gaps.
As you progress, you get used to the pinball machine-like flicks and bumps. There's a surprising amount of control and nuance from this simple input. Still, the levels become more intricate and complex to maintain the level of challenge. For example, later stages introduce more reliance on magnets, which feels unfamiliar and challenging.
Each level has a star rating of up to three, based on how long you take to finish it. That means there are reasons to go back and try to master levels you previously finished. It's a satisfying puzzle game that offers a polished, colourful experience through fun and challenging mechanics.
5+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Still, it’s important for parents and guardians to ensure they understand in-game purchases and have spending limits set-up. Some aspects of Automatoys may be challenging for younger players, such as timed jump sections and dealing with setbacks.

You can try three levels for free but then need to purchase the rest.
