Frogmind Games certainly knows how to keep on giving. It's now updated its physics-based action-adventure Badland with co-op multiplayer. It's time to grab a mate.

So, rather than beating each other up in Badland's multiplayer deathmatch mode, you help each other out.

If one of you dies, then you can pick up the clone power-ups to bring her back, you see. This is handy knowledge, as Badland's gauntlets quite often demand sacrifices.

Badland's co-op mode supports up to four players on the same device, either with controllers or using the touchscreen (the corners).

Frogmind has made all 40 levels of Day 1 compatible with the co-op multiplayer. There are also 120 new missions and seven new achievements - that should be plenty.

If it's not, then you'll just have to wait for co-op support for Day 2. Should be happening soon, mind. Frogmind tells us that more Badland is on the way, by the way. We can hardly complain.

The co-op multiplayer is available as a free update for those who own Badland.

If you haven't downloaded the game yet, you can pick it up on the App Store now for £2.49 / $3.99 [buy]. It's also available on Android via Google Play [download] and the Amazon App Store [download] as a free-to-play game.
