When the game launched, the developers took to Twitter to warn players of the epileptic risk in the game’s final boss.

A Day One Patch had been immediately released to fix the problem. It also came with some enhancements to the gameplay.

Note: Balan Wonderworld has been automatically patched but you still have to make sure that you are playing on the game’s latest build.




Although a patch had been released to fix the possible epilepsy risk as well as enhance the gameplay, which some say should’ve been fixed before the game even launched, another argument is that the game is a bit outdated.

Balan Wonderworld is a platformer that according to the reviews is twenty years too late.

Video Games Chronicle’s Chris Scullion gave the game a 2/5 stars saying that “For better or worse, Balan Wonderworld feels like an HD take on a PS2-era platformer.”

The reviews on Steam show a Mixed rating for right now, but we can expect more reviews to come in over the next couple of days.

The positive reviews of the game state that it has great music, significant ideas, and a positive message.

A negative on the reviews is that the game is priced at $60, which is considered pricey for its kind of game.
