A dark enchanting forest inhabited by strange creatures may conjure up chirpy cartoony graphics with fairies flying around. But in Badland, it’s a place where something has gone horribly wrong. This award winning platform adventure from Frogmind Games puts you in charge of a strange creature who goes on a journey into the dark forest to discover what is going on within its eerie depths.
The stunning atmospheric graphics, captivating sound effects and innovative physics based gameplay will make you lose yourself in the most remarkable journey of your life. The game features an intuitive one touch control system that lets you move the strange black creature up or down the screen. Your job is to guide the creature through a maze filled with the most extraordinary of things. There are obstacles such as boulders and spikes as well as strange pill like stuff that act as powerups giving you the power to grow big, or small, or explode into cloned versions of the same.
Badlands can be played in single player mode but it also offers local multiplayer options for up to 4 players. The game has also been optimized for tablets, which means you can enjoy all the action on a larger screen if you like. The developers promise plenty of updates for both modes in the coming days, so content wise you should have plenty of stuff to enjoy for a long while to come.
Badland is not completely free to play but you get more than enough (40 levels) for free. You can unlock the rest (40 levels) for a pretty price of $1.99 as well as the multiplayer pack for a further $1.99. Or if you want to have it all, just pay up $2.99 and you can enjoy all the bizarre platform adventuring you can with your friends.
