    I've gotta say, I'm more than impressed. From the spot-on controls, immediately lovable mascots and addictive gameplay, to the techno-natureI've gotta say, I'm more than impressed. From the spot-on controls, immediately lovable mascots and addictive gameplay, to the techno-nature menu soundtrack, bonus 2D levels and upgrade system, Armillo has managed to exceed expectations in every single aspect. Sometimes, the whole is greater than the sum of its' parts, and Armillo is a classic example of that.
    Reviews have been scarce for this title, so allow me to set the record straight- Armillo is much better than you're probably expecting. Navigating the maze of guided rail paths on the surface of 3D Planets is fun in and of itself, but the upgrade system makes the game all the more addictive. Not to mention alternate dimension traveling, bonus Moon Worlds, unlockable 2D platforming levels (which are VERY novel and entertaining btw) and boss fights. It all comes together nicely, and I would definitely recommend this game to anyone who, well, likes fun games :)

It has gameplay that screams fun and innovation, and the graphics are just beautiful for an indie game on wii u. the only faults i can find are the very meh soundtrack and the occasional framerate issues.

    I first got my hands on Armillo at a convention and it was nothing short of amazing - intuitive controls, great level design, proper physics,I first got my hands on Armillo at a convention and it was nothing short of amazing - intuitive controls, great level design, proper physics, beautiful graphics, amazing soundtracks/audio details, plus all the adorable characters. I haven't had such fun with a game in a long time (that I finished Armillo in two sittings and bought myself a WiiU for its launch in eShop).

    The 3D levels have lots of replay value, and the unlockable 2D levels are such a treat. The game has the perfect learning curve where levels gradually increase in difficulty - they are challenging at times but never frustrating. New mechanics are being introduced every few levels so the game is always refreshing and rewarding. Armillo exceeds all my expectations with its pure, fun, gameplay, and I'd highly recommend you start rolling with that little guy!
