Badland is one of the most popular mobile phone games ever, so I guess it’s no surprise to see it finally making the long-awaited transition to home consoles. Developer Frogmind have certainly talked a good game and are promising that this Game of the Year Edition features a huge raft of new and upgraded content, including over 100 levels, plus a load of multiplayer features.

For those (like me) who are pretty new to Badland, the game is a side-scrolling, physics-derived puzzle-platformer that features a chasing camera (think the original Mario Bros.) to ensures a frenetic pace. The sumptuous, hand-drawn graphics mask challenging and varied gameplay that is dished out in bite-sized levels. There is an element of trial and error in most games like this, but Badland does well to ease the pain with its generous checkpoint system.

Trine 2 review (XBLA)

Trine 2 review (XBLA)

Trine 2 was developed Frozenbyte and published by Atlus. It was released on December 21, 2011 for 1200 MSP. A copy of the game was provided for review purposes.

Back in 2009, Finnish developer Frozenbyte launched their physics based puzzle-platformer, Trine. The game caught the eye of many gamers and now two years later, Trine 2 has launched looking to build on the first game’s success. Leaning on its familiar blend of beautiful backdrops, character switching, and physics based puzzles, Trine 2 brings our heroes from the first game back and sets them off on a new quest to save the game’s mystical universe. But just who are these heroes and why are they important? Each character brings something unique to the game. Pontius, the knight is the warrior of the group who spends most of his time doing what he does best; fighting. Amadeus, the wizard spends his time using magic manipulating the environment. Finally, there’s Zora, a thief who excels at moving from place to place quickly and efficiently and also happens to wield a bow. Three completely different characters with completely different skill sets. If you’ve ever wondered what throwing three playable characters, physics, platforming, a gorgeous and mesmerizing fantasy world, and lots of puzzles into a blender yields, the answer is Trine 2. For better or worse, the answer is Trine 2.
