Finnish indie game development studio Frogmind Games has announced the release of its hit game Badland: Game of the Year Edition for Nintendo's Wii U system.

Badland is a side-scrolling 2D action adventure game that has already achieved critical success on other mobile and console platforms, including iOS, Android, Blackberry, Windows Phone, Playstation3, Playstation4, Xbox One and Steam. It has been widely praised for its combination of challenging physics-based gameplay - which tests reaction speed and problem solving skills when avoiding obstacles - and its high quality graphic design.

The principal character of Badland is Clony and the objective is to lead this character and his numerous clones through a bizarre forest without falling victim to various puzzles and traps. For the Wii U edition the game controls have been redesigned, including allowing full directional control of the characters.

“It's a dream come true to finally have Badland: Game of the Year Edition come to Wii U,” said Johannes Vuorinen, co-creator of Badland in a press release. “The new controls, Full-HD 60fps visuals on the big screen and old-school local multiplayer, bring Badland to life in a great way on the Wii U. So be sure to check the game out and join the noble cause of saving the Clones. They need your help!”

Badland: Game of the Year Edition is now available in the Nintendo eShop for Wii U for a special launch discount price of $9.99.
