    With 100 single-player levels, Badland: Game of the Year Edition is a worthy single-player romp on the Wii U, if you don’t mind a little frustration every now and then. But with 100 co-op levels—not to mention 27 multiplayer deathmatch stages—it’s a perfect addition to your multiplayer arsenal. So long as you’re okay with senseless clone death.

    Badland: Game of the Year Edition is a successful example of how a game designed for mobile devices can be interesting to play on the Wii U. Despite its inconsistencies and the lack of a solid plot, its gameplay provides some brilliant moments and the game is full of content and compelling ideas.

I found it pretty addictive, especially once I got fixated on the achievements in each level. Definitely some frustrations in certain parts, and doesn't always feel totally fair, but generally this is fun and engaging stuff. Beautiful simple art helps too. Expand
