Since the end of last year, when BADLAND 2 was first unveiled on iOS, the epic sequel has been one of the most awaited mobile games for the Android users. Now, Frogmind & Cheetah Mobile have together made the expectation a reality by officially launching BADLAND 2 on Android! This game keeps everything you loved about the first BADLAND and steps it up to the next level with even more stunning graphics, awesome new features and more engaging gameplay. And it’s now available for FREE on the Google Play Store!

In BADLAND 2, players are thrown into Jungle, Frozen, Inferno, and Infinity, which are different periods of time within the BADLAND world. You are still able to clone your character, change its size, and manipulate its speed. This time you also get to transform into a rolling ball and survive many new elements such as liquids, flames, frost, magma and also AI characters. One of the key differences from the first BADLAND is that the sequel allows you to fly & scroll into all four directions for a more explorative, immersive and adventurous gaming experience.

The model is very similar to the Android version of the first BADLAND: free to download + you can unlock the game with a single purchase of $3.99 / 3.99€ / 2.99£ or you can play without paying by watching some ads. There is no energy bar or in-game currency.

So, DOWNLOAD the game now and begin your EPIC JOURNEY!

Home screen quick actions allow fast access to single-­‐player and online modes, and iCloud progress synchronization is available across linked iOS devices.

Badland – Game of the Year Edition

Hi everyone!

Today we have B I G news for an indie studio: We are bringing BADLAND to eight new platforms! BADLAND: Game of the Year Edition will bring the game with improvements onto PS4, Xbox One, Windows, Mac, Linux (through Steam), Wii U, PS Vita and PS3. So a pretty EPIC console & Steam launch is coming this Spring!

When BADLAND was initially released in 2013 on iPad, our goal was to create a console-quality game for tablets. Frogmind was just a team of two at the time, without the resources to enter the console market, but we always dreamed of bringing BADLAND also to consoles and Steam. Thanks to its success on tablets we can finally make that dream reality in scale. Feels good to be able to tell all the fans who have asked for a specific console/Steam version that it is coming soon.

BADLAND: Game of the Year Edition is redesigned for the consoles and Steam. It builds on the beautiful, hand-painted graphics of the original with enhanced Full-HD visuals. But the biggest change is the gameplay. We knew that one button control would not be the optimal experience for consoles or Steam. We tested several alternatives and ended up expanding the controls with the analog stick and triggers. The Steam version supports both using controllers and/or keyboard (with multiple keys). With the new controls, the player has a lot more freedom – he can fly backwards and control the speed of his flying. This type of control felt best to us but it broke a lot of puzzles and levels that depended on the player to be able to do less. The solution was to modify every level in the game to accommodate the more expressive control scheme and that’s what we ended up doing. It wasn’t the easiest thing but it needed to be done and it was worth it. The console and Steam versions feels very much at home on the consoles. The multiplayer mode suits living room playing really well with multiple controllers and it feels great to be able to be more tactical in it with the new controls.

The Game of the Year Edition features over 4 times more content than the original did when it was launched. It has over 15 hours and 100 levels of single-player story content and 100 co-op and 27 multiplayer deathmatch stages in an up-to-four-person local multiplayer mode. And did I mention that it looks awesome from a large TV and feels very much at home on the platform. If you saw the console/Steam version first, you would not suspect that it wasn’t initially made for them.


We have joined forces with two other indie studios to bring about the ambitious eight platform launch. Blitworks, an awesome studio behind bringing Fez, Spelunky and Bastion among others onto new console platforms is helping on the console side and Frozenbyte, the studio behind the beautiful Trine series, is helping with QA, publishing and marketing. Together, we’ll bring the new line-up out in time and in awesome quality.

BADLAND: Game of the Year Edition will be released in Spring 2015, exact date and price are to be announced later. For the latest BADLAND news, please visit, or follow along on BADLAND’s Facebook page , where you can enter to win exclusive prizes during our launch announcement campaign.

Let me introduce you to Chico Mello, one of the best BADLAND players in the universe!

Life is good sometimes and occasionally we find top notch BADLAND players who really put their mind and soul to it. We got a chance to interview Chico Mello a.k.a “<|-|!<0” , the #1 player in the world with 3282 clones saved.


Doomsday Evil level played by Chico Mello

Ok lets start this!

1. Tell me something about yourself?
I’m from Brazil and I’m 24 years old.

2. How did you hear about Badland?
Saw it on Apple Store and it was Apple’s birthday or something so I was able to download it for free.

3. How long have you been playing Badland?
I’m not sure about this one, but it’s definitely for more than a year.

4. Favorite level?
I love them all, but if I have to choose one I would say “Shields”

5. What feature would you like to add to Badland?
I always loved the idea of playing the multiplayer online, not on the same device. But I know that’s almost impossible due to the amount of information Badland levels have and it would be very hard to keep things in sync, so more levels is the only thing I can think about since the game is perfect. Maybe a different powerup or levels with water on it. A kind of “boss” would be cool too, a living creature of some kind, maybe the crazy bunny that we see on the background.

6. Hardest achievement?
“God Status” – Complete the level Flaw with the chained character. Or completing all levels with one try.

7. Hardest one try?

8. Hardest mission?
I will go with “Collect all powerups on Accelerator”

9. Any special magic trick you used to beat those hard Doomsday levels
through? Do you have some kind of a training program to beat those hard
Doomsday levels? :)
No training, just getting use to controls sensitivity and the level itself, it gets easier each time. (Not easy only easier)

10. Do you play Multiplayer mode or Co-Op mode? If you do, what was the funniest thing that happened?
I did but alone, in what Lunartic like to call “2 Thumb Madness”. So the funniest thing is the actual gameplay with two fingers, your brain goes crazy and sometimes you confuse left with right.

11. Your tips to other players?
Don’t give up, Badland is all about perseverance. You have to be prepared to die in the end of a level, right when you were about to complete a mission or save a lot of clones, and being able to start over and overcome frustration.
And also information, which you can find at I discovered some things there that took the game to a whole new level.

12. You are awesome at Badland! What is your secret?
Love, I just love Badland and saving clones.

13. Greetings to the Badland team
Congratulations to you all for creating not only one of the best, most creative game of all times, but also for creating art. I can’t even begin to understand how the ideas for creating the levels come to your awesome minds, it seems like you guys had a little visit on the future and come back with those fresh ideas and beautiful creations. I just hope you are all working on more even if you all deserve vacation for a lifetime already.

Thanks Chico Mello and good luck for your further struggles with BADLAND. May the Clones be with you!

It is thrilling to get the game in front of new users. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Feel free to give us any feedback about anything.

Many of you have been asking also about the Android version. It is getting closer every day. We are hard at work on making it happen rather sooner than later but there is no specific date yet.

I would also like to take this opportunity to personally greet all of you Badlanders and introduce myself. I just joined the two brilliant guys of Frogmind. I will be helping them on the operational and marketing side and ensuring they have more time to work on their art, which is making the games. One of the reasons I’m here is also so that we as Frogmind can spend more time communicating with all of you. I’m hoping we get a good dialog going and can add more value for you also through supporting the games on the social media side. Please join us on the Frogmind journey, which is only in the beginning!

Thanks for all your awesome support and feedback!
