How, Elmo, how? It’s quite simple, really. Through a chain reaction of sidetracking, I discovered there are no longer any working APK mirrors of it, and I have no interest in jumping through hoops to get it on Google Play again.
As you might expect from such a simple game, Bread contains nearly zero references & Easter eggs. But not quite zero! It’s one. The total is one.
