Badland, a side-scrolling action-adventure game from ex-Trials Evolution developers, recently received 10 free new levels with more due in late June or early July, according to an update on the game's official site.
In Badland, the player controls a forest inhabitant who embarks on an adventure to find out why the once idyllic environment is becoming increasingly dangerous. The game features a selection of power-ups, such as duplication, speed-up, slowtime and a juggernaut-like power-up. Badland includes competitive four-player local multiplayer on the same device and is compatible with iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch devices.
Based in Finland, Frogmind is a two-man development team of former Trials Evolution developers, who founded the studio in 2012. To date, Badland has won the Best Project Award at Game Connection Europe 2012, Sony's Best Project Award and recently the Indie Sensation Award at the Nordic Game Conference. According to Frogmind, Badland boasts more than 150,000 players.
