The it was nice to catch up with the incomporable Kybernetikos over the Christmas holiday, and even nicer that we each introduced the other to a new game. I showed him EVE (and we spent a couple of hours ratting together) and he introduced me to Armadillo Run. It’s brilliant. A sick cross between The Incredible Machine and Bridge Builder, Armadillo Run lets you create whacky Rube Goldberg contraptions, and solve each level in your own unique way.
There’s a free demo, but it was one of those instant decisions to pay a tenner for the full game. I’m completely hooked, and have been downloading additional community-created levels (the “Armadillo, Natures Finest” set by Sam Howels is brilliant) and since materials cost varying amounts of money, vying with other players across the interweb for a cheaper solution is fun.
