Who doesn’t like great iPhone apps? At iPhone Insight we definitely do. With that in mind, we offer up a quick review of an excellent iPhone app published here each week.  Check out all out picks below and you’ll soon have a collection of stellar apps for your favorite phone.

This week’s pick is BADLAND 2, by Frogmind.  The app is currently 50% off–what a great reason to give the sequel to Apple’s App of the Year a try!  Game apps on my iPhone are a tricky proposition for me.  For the most part they reside in one of two categories–apps that I would really like to try for one reason or another, or apps that I have played a few times, but have since been forgotten and now just take up space in my extra storage space.  One thing I’ve noticed over the last few weeks, is that I don’t make time in my day for any leisure/fun time–even if just for a 10 minutes at a time.  I haven’t made it a resolution or anything serious like that, but I’d like to allow myself a little more down time.

This week, that down-time guided me toward BADLAND 2.  Unfortunately, even though I had wanted to on a couple of different occasions, I never had purchased the first BADLAND app, so I didn’t have any experiences to draw upon with this purchase.  That being said, the promo video still looked great, so I took the plunge.

The gist of the game is that you try to stay alive while guiding your character through an amazing colorful world while also navigating puzzles, traps and obstacles. There are a plethora of elements in the game including liquids, flamethrowers, frost, magma, water and volumetric burning light.  You can lose yourself in this immersive game that sends you down deadly rifts and allows your to fly in any direction.  You can play in single player mode or go online, and compete against your friends.

Here’s an App Store link for BADLAND 2. Compatible with iOS 7.0 or later, BADLAND 2 for iOS is an universal app that works with iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Apple TV.  Bottom line–BADLAND 2 is an incredibly fun app with a ridiculous amount levels–especially with the addition of the new ‘WARPZONE’ level pack and the 15 new online levels you can play against your friends.  The only draw back is once I get started, I don’t want to go back to the work I was taking a break from in the first place.
