For the majority of the day, like all millennials here, I spend my time mindlessly scrolling through social media as a distraction from everything else. Whatever “everything else” may be. But, what happens when you need a distraction from social media? Is there a social media app that’s just… Not social media?
Of course, let’s not forget the “old school” distractions such as taking a walk, singing a song, climbing a mountain, just everyday stuff. But if you’re stuck on a train, someone breathing down your neck, and you simply have no option to take a walk or climb a mountain at that point, I will let you in on an app that has been keeping me entertained and laughing at my phone at the most socially unacceptable times (such as Monday mornings on my commute to work).
I found “Bacon – The Game”app while I browsed the gaming section on my app store, because the 2000+ levels on Candy Crush I had completed couldn’t please me anymore.
The challenge of the game is to throw a streak of bacon, from a frying pan, onto several objects. It sounds simple enough, and it is. But that’s not the amazing part.
Let me tell you, no, let me show you, why this game app made me laugh. You’re not just throwing this streak of bacon at any object. You’re throwing it at everything.
I put the bacon on all of these things. But here are some of my ultimate favourites:
Bacon, oh bacon, you’re making me shaken
And can we just talk about that plaster that the pig has on its belly? Could that be the famous bacon streak? I think so.
And some more…
Because if you didn’t know already, bacon really does go with everything.
The downside: If you physically cannot handle the stress of not passing a level, you can choose to skip it by watching an ad.
I have no idea how many levels there are to this, it goes from one level straight to the other. I hope it never ends.
What’s your favourite distraction app?
