Armadillo Smash now available on App Store

for iOS and Apple TV


Armadillo Smash is a simple yet addictive, retro-style, endless bouncer that is easy to pick up but hard to put down. With the help of Pepe and Rodo, launch Mando the armadillo sky high. Then, tap when Mando is in the center of the target to keep him bouncing his way across the Texas hill country. Improve your skills to grab more skulls and top the leaderboards.

The original Tap-to-Bounce gameplay makes Armadillo Smash a must-share experience. Friends will want to play after looking over your shoulder. Normally, this would mean handing your phone over. With Armadillo Smash, your friends can join in on the fun using an Apple Watch as a controller while you also play.
