Armillo Set To Support Off-TV Play

Posted by Andy Green

Fuzzy Wuzzy Games could implement touchscreen support too

Fuzzy Wuzzy Games is currently developing Armillo, a 3D platformer with levels designed around a set of obstacle courses, and it's expected to roll into the Wii U eShop at some point this year.

The developer has now revealed on Twitter it has integrated off-TV play to the current build of the game, while it also offers second screen display functionality. However, it doesn't have touchscreen capabilities just yet. The studio is currently looking into how it can use it in a way that adds more to the game.

Hopefully Armillo will retain the off-TV play in the final version. It would certainly be strange if it was removed.

We spoke to Fuzzy Wuzzy Games earlier this year, where it reveled the main influences behind Armillo include Super Mario Galaxy and Marble Madness. You can read the full interview here.

I will read the interview, as when I read the article where they mentioned the eShop games available at Gamescom, the only one I knew about was ShovelKnight.

Thing about marble madness is it doesn't work right with anything other than a trackball like the original arcade cabinet had.

YAY more news about this! Glad to know it's still alive and kicking, I'm a sucker for animal games, and puzzly platformy rolly games like this too

Awesome! I'm excited to play this game, looks really nice Will it have motion controls? I'd love to rotate the gamepad & have the ball move or whatever but it's not a deal-breaker if they don't add it in

@unrandomsam Hello! Although inspired by Marble Madness, this game plays actually plays quite different. A bit more reflex-based platformer oriented controls and less ball rolling style physics.

@WiiLovePeace Thanks for the tweet asking about this question, but just sharing it here for the rest - yes we'll look into optional motion controls. We'll put it in only if we feel that it works well with our current gameplay model.

I've been looking forward to this game for a while, the summers almost over and they don't have a release date yet? Whack! We need more games like these out on the market!

I love the look of the levels and the textures. The main character seems to kiddie many levels in this game?
