I’m always on the lookout for new and interesting games to play and today, Badland has caught my attention. From Frogmind Games, Badland is an action side-scrolling platformer that features some really gorgeous graphics. It’s very atmospheric and one of the main reasons it drew me in.
As you can tell by the trailer, it looks like a really unique game that has a style reminiscent of World of Goo which was and still is one of my favorite games. It’s available in the App Store now for $3.99 as a universal app here.
HELSINKI, FINLAND – APRIL 4, 2013 – Developer Frogmind Games is pleased to announce that the award-winning BADLAND is now available in the iTunes App Store for iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch.

“We have totally fell in love with the world of BADLAND and think the atmosphere is perfect, so we are excited for our fans to finally play what we have put our hearts and souls into,” said Johannes Vuorinen of Frogmind Games.
Winner of ‘Best Project 2012’ for both the Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) Game Connection Award and Game Connection Europe, BADLAND is located in a gorgeous forest full of various inhabitants, trees and flowers. Although the forest looks like it’s from some beautiful fairytale, there seems to be something terribly wrong. The player controls one of the forest’s inhabitants to discover what’s going on. Through his journey he discovers an astonishing amount of imaginative traps and obstacles.
