Badland Brawl is a Free To Play deck-building real time multiplayer game that is a spinoff of the Frogmind Badland franchise. The game is similar in style to other free to play deck-building games, most notably Clash Royale, but one major difference in gameplay is that the attackers are launched off slingshots in a sort of Angry Birds style. The goal is to destroy the opponent's tower three times, and with all the chaos that ensues with multiple units flying left and right on the battlefield.

Each person has a deck built of 8 cards, out of a possible 32, and each card has its own strengths and weaknesses. The player launches the units from a slingshot, and each unit can be launched only when you have enough mana. The cards have different rarities, noted Primal, Evolved, and Mythic, with Unreal being a new rarity type April 2018. Warfare generally includes not only slamming on your opponent with strength but also your units being pushed around, blown up, and snagged out of the sky.


Badland Brawl was soft launched in Finland in November 2017 on iOS, and it expanded to a over a dozen countries soon after. It soft launched to the same countries on Android in April 2018. It has not been released in the United States. Badland Brawl has received positive and favorable reviews among game reviewers and fans.

Badland Brawl contains examples of:

  • Kill It with Fire: Fire Birds, the Napalm weapon, and the Fireball Meteor event.
  • Level Grinding: Getting to higher arenas, to only unlock one or two additional units to be possible to add to your deck, takes a long time to get there. Also, there are 25 levels to upgrade your common cards.
  • Lighter and Softer: Compared to the darkness of Badland, this game is much more family friendly, much less creepy, and a blast and a half
  • The Lost Woods: True to the Badland Franchise.
  • Shout-Out:
    • The Saw from Badland is deliberately referenced from the first game. It also has a strangely satisfying feel to use what was killing you in the first game on your team now.
  • Socialization Bonus: Want cards and more units faster? Join a clan! If you donate to someone else, you get money for it too.
  • Spinoff: To Badland
  • Took a Level in Badass:
    • In Trial mode you have 3 different difficulties. Chill (Example: Zane), Angry Zane, and the most difficult is Badass Zane.
  • Unfriendly Fire: You can and will hurt your own units with your own explosions and attacks. Be wise how you launch your Grabber, Puffer bug, Blast mine, or Doggos because
  • Zerg Rush: A very popular tactic. Essentially, if you dominate the playing field with units, your opponent has little to no chance of recovering.
    • Doggo Horde, the mythical upgrade to Doggos, comes out with a pack of doggos that swarms your opponents creatures.
    • Flying Barrel is a unit that begins as a wooden barrel that strangely resembles a bird, until it does a little swirling and turns into a swarm of high damage fire birds that can destroy a tower with one flying barrel.

How well does it match the trope?
