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.

This is a very fun game! You'll have to wait almost one more week to find out yourself, but it'll be worth the wait.

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:

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.

I have been more excited for this game than Shovel Knight!
At least until it came out now I really really want Shovel Knight more than ever. But hey Armillo wins again by being cheaper! So excited toFINALLY have this tomorrow.

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?

Armillo's out today and the developers are doing an AMA on Reddit if you're interested in asking them questions!

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!

I really like this game, I think the technical issues is the only problem I have with it so far.
This and stick it to the man are my favourite Indies games on Wii u so far
