Silly, difficult game buries safety message a bit too deep.

Eh.

Although a bit violent it still is a good game for you to play. And I mean literally. It increases the speed of which you can do certain tasks. Also it is addicting and fun.

Fun game!

It's a fun game but there is some cartoon violence like the blood looks so fake but here's the bad stuff like a random guy killing you, bears eating your head off so,getting electrocuted and stuff like that so i would rate the game 9+.

Is It Any Good?

DUMB WAYS TO DIE 2: THE GAMES is one of those apps that seems mindless on the surface but is actually trying to teach a lesson. The goofy, instantly forgettable (but fun) games are the draw, but the app's ultimate goal is that people will learn to be safer around commuter trains. It's a good lesson, but with so many ridiculous mini-games to play, it can get lost in the shuffle.

The games themselves? They're best described as short-term time-wasters: not too challenging, until they ramp up the speed to a point where they're virtually impossible. Neither the games nor their message will stick with you mentally, but you'll have a good time as you play.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
