Description

Blockadillo is an arcady Android game where you have to smash colored blocks with a color changing armadillo. The catch? The armadillo is rolled up and bounces up and down by itself the whole time. You can only steer it left and right to reach the blocks you have to smash in order to complete a level. This may be harder than it sounds. The blocks are colored in one of five colors and the Armadillo has a color too! It can only smash blocks that have the same color. To change its color the Armadillo has to find and hit special stones. Besides these there are a lot of other things to find in a typical Blockadillo level like: blocks that can only be moved with the right color, switches, ancient machines, moving platforms, deadly traps and huge lava pits.
