This alarm won't shut up til you play a game

Alarm clocks suck, mostly because they take you from a happy place (the warm bosom of slumber) to a hellhole (normal life). So Microsoft decided to make one which might even be worse. Say hello to Mimicker Alarm, which makes you play a game or it keeps shouting at you.

The alarm goes off and you make it shut up, but then the phone throws up one of three games - you have to contort your face into an expression, find a certain colour and take a snap of it or say a tongue twiste. What fresh hell is this? The app will even let you share a screenshot of the expression your sleep-palsied face managed to crumple itself into.

Presumably the point to all of this is that if the alarm engages your brain in a different way you're less likely to doze off again, but it all seems a bit cruel to be rudely woken up and subjected to this on a cold winter's morning. Still, if you're curious the Android app is on the Play Store.
