Bad Pad - Early Access DEMO

Share Collapse

Author Comments

A fictional hard rock musical comedy metroidvanian platformer.

The wacky premise of Bad Pad is told in songs and is set around a gamepad's buttons who came to life, their endless battles, tons of jumping, mind controlling machines and a little bit of time traveling.

Join Square in his adventures, survive Evil Pen's hellish castles, help seva Hexa and Trapezoid and probably the rest of the world!


This version of Bad Pad is a rather old early access demo, the final product went through many changes and additions.

This demo contains the first act of the game, with 4 levels, 40 scenes, 2 boss fights, a couple of train levels and one arcade mini game.

Takes to long to get into the actual game, clicked away, sorry.

HeadbanGames responds:

Hi, I'm sorry you had a bad experience with my game, it's a rather large download, so it may take some time to fully cache on the first run, after that it should run instantly.

If you're still having issues you are welcome to try the demo on Steam

Love the game it's super fun but I always get stuck at the part where I get the glow ability. I don't know if it's intentional or not but hope you can fix it but other than that well done.

HeadbanGames responds:

I'm not sure what you mean, is there a bug there or you just don't know what to do?

After getting the glow there's a key to right of the upgrade machine, you need to take it and go through the door at the dark part on the top of the scene (right side of the door that leads to the boss).

Let me know if you manage and if you need more help you can contact me privately too.

Amazing game it has a great story and pretty good gameplay i can't wait for the full version!

HeadbanGames responds:

Thanks, I'm glad you liked it, hopefully we'll get a full release early 2017, for now we're planning an early access release on October with the first 2 floors, it's not all 100% done yet, but if you're done with floor 1 and interested in testing some more levels p.m me.

Cool game, reminded me of meat boy, but after playing saw this game has more exploration to it.
Really liked it!

Why is X a Bad Guy? Without him, i cannot drift in Modnation Racers!

HeadbanGames responds:

a victim of circumstance.
