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?
EVIL

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 badland.gamerz.co. 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!

Wow. Lots of stuff happened since last blog post. I guess that has kept us too busy to update this blog. Our apologies for the lack of updates. We are totally alive and hands full of new stuff related to BADLAND!

Latest update, update number #15, brought the awesome cooperative mode to BADLAND. Now you can play the modified Day I levels together with your friends similar to the regular multiplayer. Only this time you are not playing against but for the common good.

COOP in action:

The update before in April brought the Doomsday Level pack with 10 hardcore levels. These were designed especially for our hardcore level loving fans. April 4th was also the first anniversary of BADLAND. Awesome year behind, and even more awesome year ahead of us. Exciting times!

Doomsday levels in action:

BADLAND has also received a lot of new awards and nominations. To name a few, BADLAND won the Grand Prix award in IMGA, best tablet game in the Webby Awards, Best Mobile Game in the Satellite Awards and received three nominations in the BAFTA. And finally, one of the coolest award BADLAND received during the past six months was the App Store iPad Game of the Year 2013 by Apple itself.

Btw, lots of exciting new things happening in the BADLAND world as well. Too early to talk at this point still. Stay tuned :)

BADLAND is out on Google Play for Android phones and tablets. With 80 levels of single player action and 21 levels of local multiplayer, it now offers an equally solid amount of entertainment also for the Android players.

Get it!

BADLAND for Android is the first version of the game to use a friendly, flexible free-to-play model. The player can choose to play the first 40 levels for free, with no commitment other than to watch a video trailer from time to time. The free content also includes four multiplayer levels. However, there are various ways to purchase additional content in the game. Making any of the purchases removes also all ads:

1) Premium pack. Full unlock of all content and features.
2) “Day II” pack. The second 40 levels of the game.
3) Multiplayer. 17 more multiplayer levels and 3 multiplayer characters.
4) No ads. Removes all ads from the game.

There is also a link to a ‘coming soon’ online store in the game. The shop will open the second week of December and players will then be able to order real world BADLAND goods such as phone cases, T-shirts and posters.

A Kindle version of BADLAND is also coming soon. Keep up with the latest good news from BADLAND by following the game on Facebook www.facebook.com/badlandgame and Twitter www.twitter.com/BadlandGame.

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!

Cheers,
Teemu Mäki-Patola
COO & CMO / Frogmind

We have great news for all Android and BlackBerry 10 users! BADLAND is coming to both of these platforms! Check out these fresh videos running BADLAND on Google Nexus 7 and BlackBerry Z10:

If you want to try these out, the guy behind BADLAND’s audio, Joonas Turner, will be at PAX in Seattle this weekend in PAX 10 BADLAND booth with Google Nexus 7, BlackBerry Z10 and of course iPad available running the game. Come and say hi to him! :)

So, when is it coming?

Our best answer at the moment is “soon” or “as soon as they are done”. There’s still work to do. We want BADLAND to be as good gaming experience on Android and BlackBerry 10 as it is now on iOS. We’ll let you know about release dates as soon as we know.

Also, celebrating our PAX presence, the game is now limited time 50% off on App Store!

Another free BADLAND update went just live! This time we focused on the multiplayer and brought four new multiplayer levels.

Also, big thanks to you, our awesome fans, for great improvement ideas! We listened to you and implemented a bunch of those. For example, this update improves the single player experience so that you do not have to restart an unfinished level even if you have killed the app. In addition, after you have finished all the levels there are currently available, the game now remembers which was the last Day and time of day you played. We are so glad to you give us feedback so we can improve the game.

The update is completely free so just go to App Store and download the update:

We hope you enjoy the new multiplayer levels and improvements as much as we do! Again, feel free to give us any feedback in the comments or by contacting us straight through the contact from in http://www.badlandgame.com/about/
