The twisted and darkly beautiful BADLAND is an original, bewitching dream of an app. If you're nostalgic for Lemmings, if you love creative puzzle solving, if you're looking to lose yourself in world after world of flying odd creatures through endless silhouetted malevolence - download BADLAND immediately, and get ready to sink into strangeness.
The endless runner playing style means minimal controls; tapping on the screen makes the creature fly higher, and letting go will make it sink. Simple, until you're faced with a barrage of plummeting platforms, whirling blades, crushing gears, and explosive plants - to name just a few. Skillful flying won't be enough; you'll have to make use of various power-ups distributed throughout the levels in order to modify the creature, stretching it to an oversize blob or squeezing it into a speck, or even changing the stickiness and bounciness of the little guy. Successful navigation of the alien environment will lead you to a vacuum-powered exit tube, which will unceremoniously shoot you into the next level.
A local multiplayer option can be unlocked for up to four players, which offers twelve different stages in which to attempt to survive the longest. It's absurdly tricky to manipulate on the iPhone screen, though; you'll be much better off if you try it on the iPad.
BADLAND is utterly, uniquely creative. Its elaborate challenges set in surreality make you laugh and struggle and think laterally all once. Both the visual and audio designs are breathtaking. This innovation from Frogmind is highly worth a download.
