Dumb Ways to Draw
Free for iOS and Android

About 6 or 7 years ago, an Australian rail company had the brilliant idea of encouraging rail safety by using a catchy song and a free game. The original Dumb Ways to Die song and game were a sensation, amassing millions of views and downloads. They followed it up with v2 and v3 which were also generally well received. Now it’s time for yet another instalment.

You’re still playing with the funny bean-like characters (Hapless, Bonehead, Pillock, Dimwit, Mishap, Putz, Numskull and others) and they’ll still keep dying. Except this time, it’s a Physics puzzle. You have to use a bit of wit and some drawing skills to keep your bean alive in different scenarios. As before, the flat graphics and bright colours make you feel you’re watching a cartoon but there’s still a message in there about how to stay safe around trains. The game is free but there are some in-game extras you can purchase.
