The best of BitBook

If you haven’t played Tiny Tower yet, it’s the new iOS game with 8-bit graphics that’s all the rage at the moment and BitBook is an in-game status update service for the residents (known as Bitizens) of Tiny Tower. Anyway, my bitizens occasionally post some updates that are pure genius! Here are some of my favourites:

  • I used up all my sick days, so I’m calling in dead. – Stacey Austin
  • Clones are people two. – Sylvia Morales
  • If I’m not back in five minutes… wait longer! – G Weaver
  • If you see gum on the floor, leave it there. It isn’t free candy. – Jesus Phillips
  • When the moon hits your eye that is 1 pixel wide, it’s amore! – Calvin McCoy

  • Out of my mind. Back in five minutes. – Julio Silva
  • A life? Cool! Where do I download one of those? – D. Franklin
  • How many bits would a bitizen byte if a bitizen could byte bits? – G Weaver
  • Sometimes I wish I had more resolution. -Emily Sutton
  • I know I’m paranoid, but am I paranoid enough? – Misty Obrien
  • I used to have an open mind but my brains kept falling out. – Renee Medina
  • Hard work pays off in the future. Laziness pays off now. – Jackie Vargas
  • The future isn’t what it used to be. – G Weaver
  • Working at the smoothie shop is my passion. That and LOL cats. – Calvin McCoy
  • Have you ever wondered if we all exist inside a computer simulation? – K Rogers
  • Why was the scarecrow promoted? He was outstanding in his field. – Jeffery Larson
  • You can’t have everything… where would you put it? – Felicia Hicks
  • I can’t even tell what this thing in the fridge used to be. – G Weaver
  • If we were thinking with portals then we wouldn’t need these elevators. – Chris Clark
  • Sorry I’m late, I’ll leave early to make up for it. – Renee Medina
  • I live life by some simple rules: walk around, yawn and blink. – Bernard Diaz
  • Scientists have discovered sub-pixels! Mind-Boggling! – Victor Gardner
  • Never, ever make absolute, unconditional statements. – D Montgomery
  • I love LAMP. – Carlos Stewart

When I first picked up Tiny Tower from the app store, I must admit it came across as a bit of a pointless game that just gets you to do repetitive tasks like operate the elevator for the bitizens and stock up the stores every 5 minutes. But having played it for a while, the BitBook status updates on their own is a fun enough reason to play the game! I now see it more as a game to fill small slots of time through the day; the kind of game you’d play while waiting for the train or in the queue at the supermarket. Did I mention there’s an Apple Mapple Store?

There’s even a store that sells LOLs, LMAOs and ROFLs!
