"Seems a little daunting at first. You'll need about 20 minutes to get used to everything and will probably spend a further hour or two just experimenting. Then hardcore gaming can begin. There's no 'right way' to complete the game so you should be hooked for quite some time. In case you do get bored, Gremlin is already preparing a datadisk with more planets to colonise and aliens to conquer." - ACE magazine

Utopia includes ten scenarios, all with a different planet and a different alien race. The scenarios are named according to the alien races: Eldorians, Vroarscans, Soomanii, Kal-Kriken, Catalytes, Squiz-Quijy, Pascalenes, Tilikanthua, Vanacancia and Lucratians.

A data disk called Utopia: The new worlds was later released by Gremlin. This disk required the original Utopia and could not be played as a stand-alone game. It included the following scenarios: Foralbo, Parillatians, Chevanno, Old-Worlders, Sarturians, Sal-Kadeem, Rako-Gorda, Key-Guardians, Darjakr'Ul and Temarkians.

The "Old-Worlders" were said to be humans, coming from Earth's earlier attempt to colonize the same planet. In practice, they were handled just as another hostile alien race.

The terrain of the Sal-Kadeem planet was unique in that it was mostly covered with silver-coloured oil that was impossible to build on. Buildings were restricted to tiny patches of habitable land.

One of the four available background musics in Utopia is Johann Pachelbel's Canon in D, a classical melody.

Utopia can handle a maximum of 256 buildings, 100 tanks and 40 spaceships at one time. Trying to build any more results in a message that simply says more cannot be built "yet".
