Here's an interview with the Armillo creators. Apparently, Sonic wasn't an initial inspiration to the design.

Comes out next week. I hope it turns out fun. This and Shovel Knight were a couple of my most wanted games.

Abandon hope all ye who enter here.

I can definitely say the game is a lot of fun. Have had the chance to play it several times, and it is an interesting fusion of ideas, definitely worth the $6 intro price.

Fuzzy Wuzzy is giving away keys to the game via twitter @armillogame over the next few days.

Also I was given some keys to the game to give away on Neo Gaf, so if you read over there, go look for the Armillo OT.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to get keys for the Nintendolife forums. I will try harder next time.

An interesting comparison about the graphics improvements they made during the delay of the game:

@Shingi_70 I'm guessing that was sarcasm xP

Very nice to hear the game is good. I am dying to download it tomorrow, reviews or not. Early bird discount makes it sweeter.

I will comment in this thread, never being able to find it again.

Right now Metacritic has two reviews.

Nintendo World Report gave it an 8 and Destructoid a 7.5

The game is pretty good for that price.
3D jump&roll full of platforming, puzzle and action elements, and many extras to collect and unlock.
Good level design and nice music too. But graphics seem a bit dark and framerate skips sometimes, and the extra stages (2D sections) controls are floaty.

Some scores/medals have bugs. You clear a stage with all the points you need but still get only Silver. On another level I have enough points for a Silver medal but got only Bronze.
Another odd observation I made is in the world select screen. It shows the number of the friends rescued in a stage. Two times!! Why have this number two times, separated, but in the same column, almost next to each other?

The Destructoid review made it seem like EXACTLY what I was expecting. A solid little platformer without a ton worth talking about. Which is perfectly fine, for six bucks especially. Might get it because it's an actual exclusive (if a timed one) and I'd have enough for Gunman Clive still.

In the AMA on Reddit that @Sylverstone linked above, there are links to many more reviews than the ones that are assembled by MetaCritic. In the AMA, they also said they are working on a patch for the frame drops (an issue I also experienced) and some other things that were discovered by reviewers. Based on the few levels I played this game absolutely seems well worth the price, but I'll wait to play more until the patch arrives.

One thing I did notice was the absolutely fantastic sound design, it's really really worth it to play it on the big sound system (off-TV gameplay would loose a lot). The GamePad implementation also is really intuitive and well made.

I'm glad they're working on a patch. Hopefully it's out soon, I really want to try this out and have the best possible experience with it!
