BADLAND: Game of the Year Edition is a charming adventure/puzzle game with lots of levels and it offers really good gameplay. Previously for mobile devices, this game has now been ported to Steam-powered devices.
If this review is too long for you, I suggest you to only read the first paragraph about the game's content and the final verdict at the end.

What is happening in the game:
You, as a cute fluffy flying spinning cloning bouncing sticking dying respawning resizing reshaping creature, have to fly across the levels without dying and you have to finish with as many clones as you can. Simple as that.

  • Visuals are simple, charming and great to look at. The character is really cute and the whole look of the game just makes you keep playing.
  • The puzzling side of the game is great. You are not told anything, you have to figure things out by yourself. Usually, it's not hard, the hard part is actually completing the stage once you figure out how. And when you do, you feel like you accomplished something.
  • There are a lot of levels. Really, you will need a lot of hours to complete them all. There are 100 of them and they usually last a few minutes, depending on how bad you are (or how good).
  • There are even multiplayer and co-op levels built in, in case you run out of levels.
  • If you are more of a couch player, this game fully supports controllers.
  • For a port, this game plays really great.
  • Apart from the obvious Windows support, you can also play this game on MacOS and Linux/SteamOS.
  • Trading Cards, Cloud Support, Steam Leaderboards, Achievements ... this game has taken Steam seriously!
  • Low system requirements, this game will run on pretty much anything.

  • When you first launch the game, it just throws you straight into the first level. In case someone would want to check the setting first or anything like that, this can be slightly annoying.
  • Some level are extremely hard, much harder than the ones preceding and following it.

The final verdict:
This is one of those games you just can't stop playing. Its art, music, levels, it all combines into a near-perfect experience and you will most certainly have a great time playing it.
In case you want to try it out first, you can download free Android version here. And if you enjoy it, which you certainly will, be sure to buy it on Steam. You won't regret it.
