March 16

Update version 1.54 released.

This is a small patch including jumping buffer for both normal and wall jumps and a fix for the map screen, where pressing 'return' on the keyboard caused the game to quit.

What does jumping buffer means?
It's very simple, up until now for jumping to work you had to be on the ground or near a wall, now you get a few extra frames of buffers for any jump request, so if you hit the button slightly before you hit the ground or the wall, the jump will still register.

Reviews

“An innovative adventure of an angered Square button unleashed from its controller’s gamepad.”
4/5 – Indie Game Reviewer

“Composed entirely in-house, there is a deliciously crunchy power metal score for each room that seamlessly transitions as you make your way through the game. Cutscenes are done as full musical numbers, giving the whole thing a Tenacious D feel.”
Ready Up

“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!”
