Armado Lite available
Tricky Software has released Armado Lite, a free version of the accelerometer-based game for the iPhone and iPod touch. Tricky has also lowered the price of the full version for the holiday season. The new Lite version gives players a chance to test the game, following the adventures of Armado the armadillo as he works to save eagles from ants. Players navigate terrain such as woodlands, mountains and volcanoes, defeating various enemies and obstacles along the way.
The game is played in a 3D environment, and requires use of both accelerometer and touch controls. Also featured is an online leaderboard, where players can upload their scores and track those of other gamers.
The full version of Armado has been reduced from $5 to $3; like Lite, it can be found at the iTunes App Store.
