    Supremely goofy deathwish novelty

    • Similar in style to popular video
    • Humor translates well to gameplay
    • Collecting mainscreen characters a fun goal
    • Very repetitive music
    • Not a great deal of replay value

    "Preventing untimely demise, one silly creature at a time"

    Everybody's seen the created to boost awareness of safety around trains; now it's up to you to prevent the untimely - and extremely silly - demise of the clumsy little fellows.

    The Dumb Ways To Die app is extremely simplistic, which suits its content just fine. The controls of how to save each creature in peril are intuitive, and these make full use of the iPhone's various tactile capabilities. The various levels require you to tap with accuracy to rid the screen of sadistic wasps, trace with care to artfully squirt mustard onto a snake's hotdog, tilt to prevent an ultra-clumsy glue eater from tipping over, and even blow to propel a self-taught pilot.

    After losing three lives, you've lost - but if you did well enough along the way, you'll add to your collection of creatures dancing on the title screen, and can even unlock the original music video if you score highly enough.

    Dumb Ways To Die is a goofy novelty app. It's very well programmed, and the cute graphics are similar in style to the popular music video. After running through the various death sequences a few times, there's not a great deal of replay value, but it's absolutely worth downloading for a few laughs.
