There were a lot of great Android games released this week, and it was tough to pick a favorite. In all honesty, Hearthstone would have been a lock if it were playable on smartphones, but we’ll have to wait until next year for that. That said, we’re going for something a little simpler but extremely frustrating with Dumb Ways to Die 2: The Games.
If you’re not familiar with the first Dumb Ways to Die from Metro Trains, here’s the scoop. It’s a batch of mini-games that will drive you mad as you try to not die in dumb ways. The game has you swipe, swat, and flick things on your phone, and the sequel does the same. Dumb Ways to Die 2 is more of the mind-numbing fun that made the original popular, but with a few new additions this time around.
As the name implies, Dumb Ways to Die 2: The Games involves “games” but not the kind you’re thinking. The games include fun activities like the Electric Fence Hurdles, Yeti Grooming, and the Javelin Catch along with things a bit less dangerous (sounding) like the Shoelace Tie. That’s just in the “Dumb Dome” mind you, Dumb Ways to Die 2: The Games has several different areas to play through and 28 mini-games to keep you entertained.
Dumb Ways to Die 2: The Games doesn’t have jaw-dropping graphics or loads of features. It does have a cast full of wacky characters, and a slew of Olympic style mini-games to take on. Most importantly, it’s fun… lots and lots of mindless fun. If you want a simple game that can test your patience or enjoy titles that will make your friends look like idiots, Dumb Ways to Die 2: The Games is a game you’ll want to download right now. FASTER!!
