I urge you to purchase the game – or at least go to the official site and download the demo. Armadillo Run really is a wonderful way of wasting hours and it'll probably run on your office PC. Now wouldn't it be great if an Xbox Live Arcade version came to the 360 too. Anyway, go download the demo and have some fun. I promise you'll love Armadillo Run.

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.

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. Armadillo Run is fairly discreet and quickly alt-tabs, though it does take over the desktop, so you may find yourself tempted to run it at work... and we wouldn't blame you

Armadillo Run takes its comprehensive physics engine and comes away with a very entertaining puzzle game. The contraptions you come up with all behave as they should, with no wacky collisions or outcomes. Many different solutions are possible, so that removes a lot of the frustration present in most puzzles games of this type. The game’s 50 puzzles (plus a comprehensive and excellent tutorial) are enough to keep you busy for a while, but the community has come strong with many wacky puzzles already available for download. There’s really no reason not to purchase this game, so download the demo and check out this wonderful puzzle game.

Armadillo Run is een erg leuke puzzelgame gebaseerd op de wetten van de fysica, die in deze game erg realistisch worden berekend. Daardoor doet Armadillo Run wat denken aan de Bridge Builder games, maar dan met meer variatie en meer fun.

Armadillo Run est un jeu de « puzzle-physics » 3D, amusant et reposant. À essayer de toute urgence !
