This arcade-style educational game was created especially for players with low vision. In Armadillo Army™ the main character, Tex, navigates a series of increasingly difficult mazes, picking up various items along the way. At the same time, he must evade a band of armadillos traveling through the maze with him. The game contains bright, large graphics, as well as meaningful sound elements.

Armadillo Army gives low-vision students practice with lateral eye movements, vertical eye movements, searching skills, timing skills, visual discrimination skills, peripheral detection skills, eccentric viewing skills, and eye-hand coordination. Students who are blind can play the game using its sound cues. A player can play alone, or with a friend. This type of arcade-style game builds confidence while giving students with visual impairments common ground for discussion and interaction with their peers.
