Badland (stylized BADLAND) is a mobile video game developed by Frogmind Games and released on the iOS and Android platforms.[1] It was released on Windows Phone 8 in June 2014. [2]

Plot[edit]

You play as one of the creatures in a mysterious forest, where at first, everything seems normal, but there is something wrong about it. Towards the end of Day 1-Dawn, a mysterious machine appears, which when lighted up kills all the creatures shown on the screen. With that, the game progresses onto noon. Then, at the end of Day 1-Noon, the machine appears again, at the break of dusk. This time, the light is more powerful. At the end of Day 1-Dusk, an egg-looking object appears, with three small lights, which when the main character passes by, switch on by itself. Then, at the end of Day 1-Night, the forest suddenly turns red, and the main character is sucked into a huge red portal, similar to the portal at the start of the game. After this, the machine appears again, this time made more evil by the red background.

Reception[edit]

The game won Apple Inc.'s 2013 iPad Game of the Year award.[3] It also won the Grand Prix award in the 9th annual International Mobile Gaming Awards.[4]

The game has a Metacritic score of 85% based on 20 critic reviews.[5]
