Badland review

Guide your character through all kinds of obstacles to get to the heart of the problem in this twist on the classic sidescrolling games.

Badland is a sidescrolling game in which you control a small forest creature on a quest to discover what's gone wrong in his world. You'll encounter numerous obstacles along the way, and there are many levels to work through on the way to achieving your ultimate goal. And you can even combine forces with up to three other players with the local multiplayer feature.

When you first open Badland, you'll be on the home screen where you can access all of the features of the app. To start playing, select "Single Player" or "Multiplayer," and then choose "Day 1" or "Day 2." There are 40 levels and 120 missions in each day, which should be enough to keep you busy for at least a little while. If you're new to this kind of game, it's probably a good idea to start at the beginning. As you complete a level, you unlock the next one, but you can always go back and replay completed levels. To work through a level, you have to guide your character with your finger around obstacles that pop up both above and below. This little furry creature can fly, glide, crawl, and tumble, so he can get around just about anything as long as he keeps up with the scrolling.

Badland is fun and straightforward to play, with lots of different levels to explore, great graphics, and innovative obstacles. The game does cost $3.99, though, which may be a drawback for some. If you're a fan of sidescrolling games, however, it's worth trying out this one.
