Warning! Bad Roads May Cause Gaming Addiction

We all love addicting games. Games such as Doodle Jump and Fruit Ninja were, and still are, true time wasters. They’re simple and uncomplicated, with a straightforward objective. They are literally child’s play, yet even as adults we still love them. If you’re looking to get hooked on another addictive game for your Android device, maybe you should check out Bad Roads by XDA Forum Member laubak75.

Bad Roads’ objective is simple. Drive Ted’s truck loaded with cages of ducks without losing them over less than desirable terrain for as long as you can. A 2D side scrolling game, it may not look very impressive with its black and yellow graphics accompanied with ‘corny’ music that’ll hardly chart the top 40s. But as we all should know, looks can be extremely deceiving. In fact, it’s the overly plain objective, the minimal yet atmospheric graphics and bucolic music that actually make Bad Roads an enjoyable, casual, and addicting game. The interface is pleasantly plain and simple too, consisting of right and left arrows that respectively accelerate and reverse Ted’s truck, a pause and reset button, and the current and highest score, represented in meters, in the top left corner.

Laubak75 has done as great job at packing simplicity, casualness, and fun into a game that’s highly addictive for all the good reasons. Bad Roads is optimized for both tablets and phones, and with support all the way back to Froyo, it’s even better that laubak75 has made the game free and ad-free. If you would like to play this game, check out the original thread.
