    Featuring silhouetted foreground aesthetics, brilliant one-touch controls, and plenty of objectives to keep gamers busy, BADLAND is a standout game that we can’t stop playing.

    BADLAND doesn't simply look pretty, it's an absolute treat to play as well as you guide flocks of disturbing creatures through a labyrinth of hazards in an attempt to uncover the secret behind its strange pseudo-mechanized world.

    Badland is easily one of the best iOS games of the year so far; an atmospheric, beautiful, cruel little gem that really shines and shows the quality of this talented 2-guy team.

    Badland turned out to be a pleasant surprise. The game takes you on a special journey through a beautiful world. From the environments and sounds to the deadly obstacles and puzzles, all elements work seamlessly with each other and it feels like one harmonious whole.

    Though $3.99 seems like a high asking price for the typical iOS game, BADLAND is more than worth it with a beautiful, challenging single-player and fun multiplayer component, and the added bonus of more levels and a furthering of the mysterious story coming in a later update.

    Simple, gorgeous, and brutal, Badland is a real treat for the senses that marvels as it challenges.

    A gorgeous-looking game, Badland doesn't quite have the moves to make it a classic.

    Badland has amazing graphics and is a fun game to play.
    Sadly though, Badland is only fun to play once for about half an hour maybe an hour..

    Sadly though, Badland is only fun to play once for about half an hour maybe an hour.. After that its the same old stuff, repeating itself. It gets boring and frankly not fun anymore.
