Customer Reviews

Best played offline to keep ads away

Very addictive, stimulating and rather interesting concept of bringing the message home in a unique manner. We've seen how the characters lives have met untimely ends, but the game holds the concept of saving their lives in quirky ways quite well. Very smart!

Activity variations to keep gameplay fresh can help, plus the hope of more mini games for the other characters would give the game a little more life, and a lot more reasons to spread the rail safety message home.

Oh and I hope a new section that gives the factual nitty gritty like the desktop site does (mobile website is too simple though), in case anyone's interested. Gameplay's worth a laugh and a smile!

Addennum: The updates in the app are also very clever: in fact, the added variety of minigames proves very stimulating. Of course, if the ads between main menu confirmations continue to run, insist they be Metro related rather than unrelated apps please!

Really obnoxious whole screen ads

tl:dr - deleted

I hate ads but will endure the banner styles to get a feel of an app - these obnoxious ads however either lock up or take over the whole screen - what a pity such a potentially interesting app has chased the user out the door on first use... Don't bother with this in its current form...

(Sure you can turn off the wifi, but why should you remove your always on device from access just to use one app and then have to remember to put it back on - these quick fix casual style apps are meant to fill in time between other things, usually wifi connected things...)


It's really creative and lots of fun! I always play this when i'm bored and it always seems to cheer me up! When my sister suggested i should get this game i was like " no way " but she downloaded it anyway, when i tried it , it was tots fun! Thank u for making this app and now that dumb ways to die 2 is out, whats ur plans for dumb ways to die 3 ( if ur making one )? Anyway thanks again for making this app and BYYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
