Massive Update - 40 000 New Levels! And -80% off this week!

The BADLAND Level World is now available also from the Steam version. Browse, play and rate over 40 000 (and counting) player made levels in conveniently ranked categories. The update adds also a constantly updating new day with 18 levels + a new level added every one to two weeks.

New features:
- LEVEL WORLD added with 40 000+ player made levels
- Find good levels easily from categories such as ‘Most played’, ’Top rated’, “Frogmind’s Choice”, etc.
- New day added! Welcome to the 'Eternal Day' with 18 levels and a new level added every one to two weeks
- Added new leaderboards for Eternal Day and Level World

Fixes:
- Multiple controllers could in some cases change the controlled player
- The analog sticks of all controllers should now work
- Keyboard binding fixes
- Multiple smaller bug fixes based on your feedback

Last spring our tablet based level editor was opened to the players of the iPad version of BADLAND. And some month later for Google Play. The players have been making new levels since then and some of these are really rad, very ambitious for quality, creativity and for trying new things.

The editor is based on multitouch editing and is thus difficult to add to the PC version without a major user interface overhaul. But all levels are now available from the Steam version. Should you want to make some levels, you need to use the App Store or Google Play version of BADLAND. All new levels will be instantly available also from the Steam version.

The Level World comes with single player, multiplayer and co-op levels. So get playing the 40 000+ new levels! There's plenty of new things to do and a lot more variety ranging from White BADLAND to driving cars, tanks, flying laser gunning vehicles, levels mimicking other indie games and more!

We’ll keep checking the forums after the update goes live. So let us know if you bump into any issues that need fixing.

Thanks for your awesome support!

BADLAND is a casual game made by studio Frogmind. You take control of a flappy furball animal somewhere deep in the forest where odd things happen because of alien machines full of traps. Well, actually, you take control of more than one furball, as almost every level will grant you the option of cloning them! Tens or hundreds or furballs that you will control with one button!

The controls are really easy and intuitive - you have a button to flap (with all your furballs) and you just choose the direction of movement. You can do this either with your keyboard or gamepad (Xbox 360 controller worked flawlessly). To be not too much casual, this game will push on you by moving screen to the right - any furball that goes off-screen dies. But don't get discouraged, the game isn't made to be hard and there are usually checkpoints before and after more demanding parts of levels.

You might think this is the extended version of popular mobile game Flappy Bird (made by Dong Nguyen in 2013), and you might be actually right - the main gameplay element is same, with added furball clones, specific gameplay changing mutators like faster sidescrolling or furball size change, and beautiful visual style based on silhouettes that you may know from LIMBO (made by Playdead in 2011).

The game offers huge amount of content, as there are hundred levels optimised for both singleplayer and local multiplayer (there are just smaller differences between SP and MP levels). But that's not all, there are also thousands of custom levels!

Even though BADLAND is originally a smartphone game, it didn't get just ported, it got a rework with focus on many details to feel great on PC. There are still new updates with even more content and bugfixes, it's great to see active indie developers. BADLAND fully deserves recommendation for what it is - entertaining sidescroller with beautiful graphics.

BADLAND: GOTY is a interesting action adventure game with puzzle elements. This game originally released for mobile devices, after that later a developers decided do a PC port.

You are a small creature, and find yourself in a dark forest with a lot of traps and barriers, your goal is to find a way out from there. The control in game enough simple, you just should use a WASD or arrows. In you way you found a lot of different boosters what you should pick up if you want escape from there. This booster for example re-size you, clone etc.
Game have a single player, coop and versus modes. For all modes you can find a tons of levels, so you will not be bored even you play longer time this game.
The game graphic style looks awesome, but in some parts for me too dark. The music and sounds also awesome.

+challenging
+tons of levels
+steam cards and achievements
+leaderboards
+awesome graphic style
+awesome music and sounds
+coop

-a bit to dark in some level parts
-in some levels can be frustrating

So i think this game is looks very nice and if you are a fan of action/adveture games its game is must buy for you. This game have a lot of good features and a lot of levels to play, so its can keep your attention for longer time.

I absolutely love this game, this is really addictive. I recommend this to everyone with to much time on their hands :P Because once you start playing you can't stop. The game designers really though this one through. It's hard enough to be absolutely sure you won't make it, but in the end you always do because in the previous level they taught you everything you needed to know to finish this level succesfully. This is how great gameplay should be.

+ easy controls
+ pick-ups make it challenging
+ great puzzle/platformer level design
+ lovely design
+ actually, everything is great

I've had Some serious fun playing this on my steam link with my son. It has some great teamwork aspects built in. I love how sometimes you just have to sacrifice yourself to allow the other player to move forward but you know that vey soon he will grab a "friends" blob (that's what we call them" and get you back in the game. It's fast paced and almost always funny! If you find this on sale, it's a must buy, for 10.00 bucks I'd even say it's worth it for the amount of enjoyment you'll get as long as you are playing coop with a friend.
