Armado Reviewed

The latest review from Macworld's Game Room dropped in on the colorful world of Tricky Software's Armado. The action game follows the adventures of Armado the armadillo as he tries to rescue the Queen of the Eagles from an army of giant ants. The Game Room gave Armado a score of 3.5 out of 5 mice.

From the review:

The game is fully 3-D and uses an interesting over-the-shoulder, third-person perspective, but the gameplay mechanics of Armado will be instantly familiar to anyone who’s played a side-scrolling action game like Sonic the Hedgehog. Armado spends the game running and jumping—occasionally hopping over chasms or clearing spike-ridden threats. He can also roll himself into a ball for an extra (albeit limited) burst of speed or to knock into his enemies—wave after wave of giant ant that can either be dodged or knocked to its doom by a swift smack from our intrepid hero.

Here comes the hotstepper In his quest to save the Queen of the Eagles, Armado must grab goodies like this gem while avoiding pitfalls such as birds throwing rocks, lava, and seemingly endless legions of giant ants.

You’re limited to moving in a forward or backward direction with Armado, which makes gameplay extremely simple to use. I’m no fan of overly complex control systems for video games, so this was a welcome respite from the norm, although I recognize that the lack of challenge is likely to frustrate more experienced gamers.
