One man. One Bus. Three hundred and sixty miles of simulated post-apocalyptic desert, and the endless struggle between man and nature personified.

Desert Bus. The most realistic verisimilitude reality game ever created by man or beast or man-beast is here at last. So real in action, you’ll think you were really the driver of a bus crossing a Desert.

No way out, no way home but the long way - by tow truck. Desert Bus puts you, the player, to the ultimate test of endurance in this mind-numbing blowout experience. There is no other game quite like Desert Bus.

Originally conceived by Penn, Teller, and Eddie Gorodetsky, this game was made in support of the annual Desert Bus for Hope charity fundraiser for Child's Play, hosted by the crew from LoadingReadyRun.

Fun on trips.

I played this a few years ago and I never had a reason to play. But I recently had a long car trip and I found this again.
It definitely helped. One thing though, half way through I found out you can't die. It would be great if that gets fixed.

Best game in my library

Whenever someone asks "hey can I play a game on you phone?" I'm quick to say, "I only have one game, so thats what you'll have to play".

Desert bus is the best joke game on the app store. Your friends who are playing will ask "do I have to dodge oncoming traffic?" "No, the only thing you need to worry about is driving off the road."

"Whats the point of the game?"
"Well you have to drive from Tueson too Las Vegas in your bus going 45 mph."

"How long will that take?"

"Well seeing as how the game works in real time I would say about 8 hours or so."

Relaxing in a way

If you like long car trips, this game is for you. Just turn on the radio in the background and the game is sort of pleasing like those ambient sounds videos.
