Badland is a beautiful looking side scrolling game made by Frogmind that I have been playing for a couple of days on my mobile phone. The aim of this game is to guide a small creature through the forest which is littered with dangerous obstacles such as saw blades and falling rocks in order to reach a transportation tube that takes you to the next level. Along the way your creature gathers ‘power ups’ which aid and hamper your progression through the level. The controls are as basic as they possibly could be, it is self scrolling and simply touching anywhere on the screen ascends the creature and to descend just stop touching the screen. With the controls being so simple you can just concentrate upon navigating through the forest and thus allows a decent amount of time to pass by without realizing it. The obstacles that obstruct you provide a competitive element to the game, whilst the various collected power ups disorientate the game play in several ways. The free version gives 40 levels to conquer, I like it.
