Armado!

Hey look it's out! That was fast... I didn't expect to see it in the AppStore 'til next week. And it looks great too. Not to mention it is cheaper and better looking than Spore!

It's pretty good s far. The first level really boring and had me hoping the whole thing wasn't like that. It seems to get better though.

So is it worth throwing in the $4.99 for it?

It's got great graphics and sound effects but that is about all.
I found the game overly repetitive\boring, controls are sluggish when jumping and changing direction making attack jumps worthless. Take out the long cheesy intros, exit animation and the 2 game crashes which caused me to have to restart a couple of levels and there is only about 30-40 minutes of game play and sadly IMHO it is not worth a second play.

Thanks for that Tadat1. You have confirmed my suspicions. Looking at the video on the TA blog, I don't think I'll bother. I wish someone would bring out Pandemonium.
