Described as a physics-based puzzle game, Armadillo Run plays like a combination of Jeff Tunnell's The Incredible Machine and Chrono Logic's Pontifex. The game requires you to carefully guide a brown ball towards the blue target area to successfully complete each level. This can be achieved by buying and placing different parts and pieces around a simulated 3D area, which can result in complicated contraptions all over the place just to achive a simple objective.

Experiment with structure length and object tension, even place a timer on any of the items to make them dissolve after a certain period of time. There is a budget to abide to, so going crazy with your designs can be rather fun although it won't get you anywhere quick. The full version includes a level editor, additional materials and downloadable solutions.

This is amazing! I bought the game, and downloaded a few levels from the site - someone's even made an eternal motion machine for it! I can't wait to begin experimenting for real.

This is the coolest physics-based game I've played since Pontifex.
