Dumb Ways to Die was an original campaign launched by the Australian metropolitan railway company to try to make users aware of how stupid it is to die run over by a train just because they haven't paid attention to the signs of danger. It was carried out through a simple video game for iPhone and Android that became viral, mainly due to its great song that we just couldn't get out of our head.
Scared of a dumb death!
Well, there was also the second part, and now they've released yet another fun installment: Dumb Ways to Die Original. If you download the APK you can play a selection of minigames in which your target is to help the absent-minded characters to survive all sorts of dangerous situations: take some toast out of the toaster, get into the train minding the gap between the train and the platform, running to escape from fire, moving your smartphone to avoid falling...
Some of the minigames available
There are over 20 different games in which you can build up coins. You've got three lives, apart from any other extra ones you can end up unlocking:
- Why is his hair on fire? Who cares, just run!
- Prevent the piranhas from biting those precious private parts.
- Best not invite that psycho killer inside.
- Get back from the edge of the platform you fools.
- Have patience at level crossings.
- No crossing the tracks! Not even for balloons!
Now that you know, have a go at this fun game and try to overcome all the challenges without dying on your way.
