Bad Pad Review

Most retro video games are incredibly difficult to the point where there's a small term in the gaming community - "Nintendo Difficulty". It refers to games that are incredibly difficult or even unfair to finish. However, considering how every retro Mario game has been totally dismantled and optimized down to the milliseconds, it's safe to say some people were determined enough to finish them. There aren't too many games with that difficulty nowadays, and Bad Pad is one of them.

Do note that to play Bad Pad, you need to have Steam installed. Once you've done that, then go to this link to install the game.

The story goes that one kid was playing Mario and it was so difficult that he threw his controller away before rage quitting. The controller breaks, causing some kind of short circuit, and the pad buttons come to life. The gameplay itself is refreshingly retro. It's a Metroidvania style game, where you explore rooms and territories to find upgrades that can unlock new territories.

The controls are incredibly tight, with momentum and control. You only have yourself to blame for missing a jump. You can jump, climb walls and perform various special moves to unlock new areas. The graphics are also incredibly faithful to the NES area, which give sit an authentic feel.

Overall, Bad Pad is an incredibly competent indie platformer. It has a high quality of gameplay, graphics, and level design. It's definitely one of the rare indie platformers that understand the genre and don't phone it in.
