Breaking Bad, the best drama on television, is making its way to Android users in two different forms. First, the first three seasons of the show are now on Netflix, which was added around when all Froyo and Gingerbread users got access to the service. Second, the web game “The Cost of Doing Business” is now available for Android. This interactive graphic novel has players playing as Jesse Pinkman, trying to get his money back from a man who stole it, and interacting with various characters from the show, including everyone’s favorite lawyer, Saul Goodman. The game resorts to largely being a choose-your-own-adventure type game, where making choices makes more money. Note that the game requires Adobe Air in order to play, and quitting or switching out of the app abandons all progress. The game doesn’t appear to be that long, but this is still a hindrance. The game is formatted for Honeycomb tablets as well. While it’s not the most heavy-duty experience, it’s still another way to get a Breaking Bad fix on Android, and is available now for free from the Android Market.
