Weekly Time Waster - ‘Bitlife – Life Simulator’

Life is like a box of chocolates - you never know what you’re going to get. The choices in life you’ve made, have brought you to where you are today. With the future always being one second ahead of you, there are many more choices we will make on the horizon in our lives as well. Wouldn’t it be fun to simulate a new life, starting from the beginning and seeing where it would end? Well, now you can!

In “BitLife”, you are tasked with taking a Bit character from the beginning of their life, all the way to the end. The game is a text-based life simulator which starts you off from birth and has you make decisions through your character's entire life. Each scenario gives you a list of options on how to respond and begins to shape your future.

For instance, your girlfriend might want to break up with you, and the game might give you the options of insulting them, wishing them well, or begging them to stay. How you respond ultimately shapes the outcome of your future love life. Maybe you stay with them forever, maybe not. The decisions are endless. You could have ten kids, become a movie star, become an astronaut, become well-educated or establish a thriving social media presence. On the other end of the spectrum, you could end up descending into a life filled with crime, spend time in jail, attempt a breakout, get eaten by a shark or even become a crime lord.

“BitLife” presents you with these realistic and unique choices but does so with a light touch. You could get really sick and decide to see a doctor, or if you don’t want to spend any money, see a witch-doctor who performs some creepy voodoo on you instead. The choices are yours! No play through is ever the same – and that’s what makes it so interesting.

“BitLife - Life Simulator” is free to download on the android and IOS stores. I must warn you though – this game isn’t for the faint of heart.
