The last 8 days have been by far the most exciting days in the project. It has been so amazing to see you players love the game as much as we do. We are really happy that this premium game without IAPs from a new indie studio has got all the attention we dreamed of and much more. We are now super happy and eager to be able to continue developing the game further and giving you new levels to play in the future. Thank you all for the feedback, reviews and support!
We have already started working on Day II. We have big plans for it and we want to continue bringing something new in the Day II also. We will bring a new update that will begin the Day II next month, on May. Even before that, really soon we will bring a smaller update with new multiplayer levels to play with your friends.
BADLAND has received mostly 5 star reviews everywhere in the world. Thank you! Here’s a fresh screenshot taken from AppAnnie that collects reviews everywhere in the world:
Here are two different kind of user reviews from users from the App Store:
Unreal game 5/5 stars
After 5 years of playing all the best itouch/iPhone games. This game goes in my top 3 ever. This means this game is incredible. This is like an Xbox360 arcade game on an iPhone. Unreal 10/10 A must buy. Definately worth $4!
HORRIBLE!!!! 1/5 stars
I paid 4.99 to fly some stupid black thing around a tunnel??? That’s it?? Complete waste of time and money, I don’t recommend this to anyone! If some people like it, hey, that’s great, but this app certainly doesn’t work for me!
