A Special update for completionists - version 1.38

We added a little treat for all you completionists out there!

If you collect all 125 coins (game difficulty doesn't matter), you can return to Pen's computer and get a fuel-free jetpack.

Other than flying being fun and all, you can use the jetpack to find a hidden ability that will help you locate all the hidden collectibles areas, by beeping louder and louder as you get closer to one.

We won't tell you where the ability is hidden, but we will give you this hint:
Look at the map for open roof areas.

You can toggle the Jetpack on and off by pressing the RUN button, you can only do so when you're mid-air.

“An innovative adventure of an angered Square button unleashed from its controller’s gamepad.”

“Bad Pad already has all the makings of a good game. A great personality, polished movement, stellar level design, and balanced difficulty all make an appearance.”

“Must Buy! We don't always have time to review everything, but we've personally played Bad Pad and think it's worth a buy. A great 2D platformer with an awesome soundtrack!”
