Addictive games have become somewhat of niche with games like Temple Run and Angry Birds hitting the stream. Who can forget the ultimate time-passers such as Doodle Jump and Fruit Slice and Fruit Ninja etc.? These games tend to be incredibly simple and they really do have no objective (in essence of it). They are so easy to play that you would think they are meant for children yet adults of all ages would immerse themselves completely and forget about the rest of the world. If you are familiar with the concept, then you should definitely take a look at Bad Roads, a game designed by an XDA member.

Bad Roads

The objective of the game you ask? Well, all you need to do is drive this truck that belongs to Ted. It is loaded with cages which in turn are loaded with ducks. The terrain is really not that desirable but then again, you are driving a truck. You must drive on that terrain without losing those ducks and you have to do that for as long as you possibly can; cover as much distance as you possibly can. The graphics of course are incredibly simple (it is a very light game), with the main theme being black and yellow and music that sounds like a 40s soundtrack. But you know how they say, looks can be utterly deceiving. In time you, whilst playing the game, you will come to realize that these are the very aspects of the game that got you addicted to it in the first place. The game is very casual, it is fun to play and is really easy too (once you get the hang of driving that darn truck). The interface is very simple, you have arrow keys to accelerate and reverse and you have an on-screen option to restart the drive, pause the game or exit. Also visible will be the current and highest score on the top-left corner of your screen and the score (as always with these games) is represented in meters.

The developer has done an amazing job at coming out with this game and designing it. Be warned that even though it may sound clich├ęd, the game is highly addictive and it has all the reasons to be that way. You can play the game on your phone or on your tablets, whichever you prefer with it being compatible with any device running 2.2 or higher. The game is free to play and the best part is that there are no ads. You can get your hands on it over here and let us know what you think in the comments.
