    This brilliant physics-based puzzle game has the power to turn even the most ardent science hater into a budding Brunel, Eiffel, or Dyson. However addicted you are to slaughter or strategising AR will seduce you, I guarantee it.

    Engrossing - if you enjoy building things, this is a must. [Sept 2006, p.104]
  4. Armadillo Run is more charming and a better puzzle game than "Pontifex," but it doesn't quite recapture that same magic. Even though it's a very different style, the same rules applied and the novelty of the physics has worn off a bit. Quite frankly however, when those are the biggest complaints you can lay at a title's feet, you know you're dealing with a special product.

    It's a game that's precisely as ambitious as it needs to be. No plot. No anti-aliasing. No in-store cardboard standee. Just you, a physics engine and an armadillo. [Sept 2006, p.96]

    You're limited by a strict materials budget on each puzzle, but the solution is limited only by your imagination, your passion for tinkering, testing, and rejiggering, as well as your tolerance for roughhousing an innocent armadillo. [Nov. 2006, p.120]
  7. The game does a wonderful job of showing how cool physics is, especially with the more elaborate puzzles, and it’s fun to see the marvelously ingenious solutions that players upload to the game’s Web site.

    A very cute game, simple yet effective. Lacks the depth of Incredible machine, but provides its own twists.
