    The official game of the popular YouTube train safety video full of unfortunate demises

    • Great for a couple laughs
    • Kid-friendly
    • Goofball graphics
    • Minigames get repetitive quickly

    "So many dumb ways to die"


    Years later and Dumb Ways To Die is still hilarious. Based off a smash hit YouTube video from Melbourne Metro promoting train safety, DWTD features heaps of cute-as-a-button cartoon critters meeting their bloody demise in really stupid ways. Save them with some fast fingerwork, only to have more creatures in distress pop up faster and faster until you absolutely can't handle it anymore. Everyone inevitably meets their doom, and that song will be stuck in your head from now until forever. Dumb entertainment.


    Graphics are goofball fun. The minigames are simple and ridiculous. It's definitely worth a laugh or two, and is even good to share with your kiddos if they need to be distracted for a few minutes.


    The minigames get repetitive quickly.

    Original review from Oct 02, 2013:

    In case you haven't seen the video that started it all, fetch it there. It all was an ad for Melbourne Metro company, who in its intent to avoid people falling to the railways it got everybody stopped poking grizzly bears. Things usually end upside-down there down in Aussieland (respect).

    This official game is indeed a compilation of fun minigames, not a single worthy of an app for its own, but altogether those little irksome suicides make something interesting. In the end, it's a compilation of casual games cloaked beneath the "dumb ways to die" brand. It won't help people to avoid falling anywhere or be safe around trains (the song didn't, either), but it's for free and you don't know when you want to play such casual thing or distract your little nephew, for example.

    Recommended, if only to hum the song once again.

    ...I wonder what this red button does...

    Original score: 7.6/10
