Dumb ways to Die! ~ APP #Reviews

reviewing AppsApp Reviews is a feature that reviews free and bought apps from the App Store, we download them, whether free or paid and play, then either just Me and/or Ryan (10) and/or Julia (7) will tell you what we thought. Sometimes reviews just don’t tell you what you really want to know and the pictures just don’t give enough info. So the three of us (or only me) have played the game, taken screen shots  and will tell you what we honestly think. So before you download that game, check out what we thought of it first.

Have a game you are considering playing but aren’t sure send us an email and we will look into it and it might be featured on our next App Reviews

Ryan 10: Thinks it’s great and funny, would love to have more mini games. four-stars

Julia 7: It’s a fun game four-stars

Michelle: This is a very funny game and the mini games are really violent but cute (weird I know) The game has a strong message which makes it not as bad as you would think. four-stars

Ok so you see the name of this game and think, no way, but Dumb Ways to Die was created to teach you the safety of trains and other things. Like don’t poke a stick at a bear or don’t wear moose antlers during moose hunting season. The object of this game is to help the little people, that look like Jelly Beans, not get killed. Putting a fork in the toaster is a bad idea so you have to help them get it out before they get electrocuted. It has a bunch of little mini games to play and as you play it gets faster and faster. Young kids might like it but it is a little gory/violent so maybe older kids would be better and ones that understand the game is to show safety. The game is great for adult and as you play the faster it gets the harder it gets.

Total Rating: four-stars


I thought the video would be cute to share instead of pictures. This video is on the DumbWays2Die Youtube channel. I do not claim ownership of this video.


Hope you enjoyed this review

Have a great day and Happy Gaming!
