Please help me figure out the meaning of the sentence "How bad could it be?" from the following text in the description of the app Dadish 2:
Your naughty little sprouts have shown up to your job unannounced and need help getting out of trouble. How bad could it be…?
I am wondering if the said sentence can work as a fixed idiom.
There can be two possibilities. One is that the situation couldn't be worse. Another is that the author wants to know about the scale of the difficulties faced by the author.
Here is a description of the app from Google Play:
He’s a dad, and a radish, and he’s back in his biggest adventure yet! After an impromptu “Bring Your Kids To Work Day” goes awry, Dadish sets off to find his missing children. Along the way he’ll wade through swamps, ride rockets, climb a big tree, and even visit outer space!
