What’s the most inane game you can think of? If you said Desert Bus, well done.
Created by infamous magicians Penn and Teller, the aim of the game is to drive a bus from Tucson, Arizona to Las Vegas, Nevada in real time, that’s it. You can travel at a maximum of 45 mph and if you want to complete it, it will take around 8 hours of continuous play because you can’t pause it. The road is straight and the bus pulls to the right so you constantly have to correct, because if you come off the road, you start again.
Make it all the way to Vegas and you get a point, at which point you are given a chance to drive back, and so on and so forth. The maximum points you can get is 99, but that would involve a team of people. At $0.99 it’s an expensive way to waste 8 hours or more of your life.
