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!”
