Don't let the name fool you: Badland is really good. Gorgeously illustrated and using an addictive, simple interface, the game stands out from the app store pack with unique gameplay and features.

While it's an easy game to grasp, the challenge lies in saving as many clones as you can -- and figuring out when to avoid growth/shrink orbs and when to utilize them. This perfect blending of adventure and puzzle will delight fans of both genres. The multiplayer is a nice addition, but seems a bit tacked on due to the fewer number of levels and the split-screen gameplay. Still, if you've got friends in a room together, it's not a bad way to pass the time.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
