App description: In Blockadillo you smash colored blocks with a furious, color changing Armadillo! The catch: The Armadillo moves the whole time up and down by itself and you can only steer it left and right.

Within the beautiful levels you will find blocks with lots of different abilities. Some of them change your color, other can only be moved if you have the same color and colored switches activate platforms and other mechanisms. Help the armadillo to find the lost idols and overcome deadly traps, deep chasms and bubbling lakes of lava. Discover ancient mechanisms and solve the riddle!

What others say:
"If you grew up in the 1990s with fond memories of Brickle, one of the few games many kids were allowed to play during free time, you may feel a surge of nostalgia for Blockadillo [...]"
- Bonnie Burgette - Indie Game Mag

"If youre interested in puzzle games than Blockadillo is something you should definitely look into!"
- Christopher Griffiths, loading.savestate.net

Have fun playing Blockadillo! :)

I don't understand, how come nobody was talking about this game back in the day, including me!?

Bought it a while ago and i can recommend it to anybody who loves arcade puzzle games. It has a cool Amiga vibe to it and I think people would like it. It's a kinda fresh gameplay & I mean you're playing as an Armadillo, how about that!!!?

It's on sale at the moment for just a dollar and everybody who likes a good premium game should take (at least) a look at this cute little gem!

The screen is split in the middle and you just push the side you wanna bounce to, feels good.

Here's a picture right from the beginning to show the controls.


And yes, it has game enter achievements!
