BADLAND is an award-winning atmospheric side-scrolling action adventure platformer set in a gorgeous forest full of various inhabitants, trees and flowers. Although the forest appears to be right out of a beautiful fairy tale, there’s something terribly wrong. The player controls one of the forest dwellers to find out what’s going on, and discovers an astonishing number of imaginative traps and obstacles on the way.

BADLAND takes side-scrollers to the next level with its innovative physics-based gameplay combined with stunning, atmospheric graphics and audio.

Editors’ Notes

Badland is an eerie sidescroller in which you guide a nondescript creature through creepy and perilous environments. Thanks to simple controls and obvious objectives, the game is instantly accessible, but winding levels and unique power-ups make each stage an exercise in careful timing and hasty strategies. As the gameplay evolves and becomes increasingly bizarre, Badland remains incredibly fun.

Level Editor - Author Name Issues.

Joshua D.

I absolutely love Badland, it's pretty much the best video game ever in my opinion. And I was thrilled when they added that incredible level editor function, it was a dream come true for me.

But, when I'm attempting to publish a level I've created. For some reason the game is using an old Game Center name of mine for the Author Name and I'm not sure why it's doing this?

I've updated my name to something new in the Game Center settings. And when I launch Badland it greets me with this newly updated name. But, every time I go to publish my level, the game still for some odd reason insists on using my old Game Center name and not my new one. It's very confusing to me why it's doing this?

I've tried uninstalling and re-installing the game but that didn't fix it either unfortunately.

Do you think that you might update the game and allow us to customize and set our Author Name, just like we are able to do with the Level Name? Instead of the game just using a Game Center name.

I would be really grateful if you would please look into this issue I'm experiencing and hopefully update Badland so that we can customize our Author Name in the level editor please. Thanks if you will consider this, thanks for this amazing game and the truly remarkable level editor and God bless.

I've also created a Badland Forum post about this issue too. Thanks if you'll check it out, I appreciate that a lot.

Too difficult

Grono Trigger

There’s a difference between challenging and frustrating and this game borders on the latter for many later stages. I finally got to a point where it just wasn’t worth it anymore when one spot on one level is so mind numbingly difficult, what’s the point? Most of the game I’d give 4 or 5 out of 5 but because of these stupid-hard levels, I’m so fed up with the game, enough to rate it low. When there’s only ONE way to get past something and if you don’t do it perfectly you’ll fail every time? That’s not good game design, it’s just sadistic. I’m done with this game. It’s visual splendor and in most cases good game mechanics have been ruined by the small percentage of levels that make you want to pull your hair out. Sad.
