Review: Armillo (Wii U eShop)

armillo

Before its release, Armillo had been in development for over three years. While it was originally intended to launch on Xbox Live, it was announced in January 2013 that Fuzzy Wuzzy Games had cancelled the game for Microsoft’s system, and had begun porting it over to the Unity game engine – which would soon be supported by the Wii U. After many delays and tweaks to the game’s formula, Armillo has finally surfaced as the eShop’s first title to run on the Unity game engine. And it looks like the wait was worth it.
