Dumb Ways to Die 2: The Games arrives as a universal app for Windows 10 and Mobile

Microsoft's universal apps model is starting to gain steam. The latest addition is the hit game Dumb Ways to Die 2: The Games, which arrived for iOS and Android in late 2014. The game is now available for free (with optional in-app purchases) for Windows 10 PCs and Windows 10 Mobile.

The game is obviously a sequel to Dumb Ways to Die and is bizarre but hilarious game for those with an attention deficit. No game lasts more than a few seconds as the challenges are bloody and too the point. Drawn with bold and contrasting colors the game's main characters make you think you are playing a comic with a mad scientist's edge.

From the game description:

"Guide these characters through 36 action packed mini-games and try to stay alive long enough to get the highest score and unlock all your favourite characters. Visit the multiplayer challenge arena and battle against your friends. Pledge allegiance to your favourite Dumb Ways character and play for global domination on the team leaderboard."

Some of the challenges in Drown Town include brushing the teeth of an Orca, not slipping and cracking your head by the pool, out swimming piranha and more. If you don't die three times during the circuit, the whole process repeats but it all goes faster. Whether it is swiping, tapping the display, or rapidly clicking your mouse, Dumb Ways to Die 2: The Games is a hilarious quick-action game.

Due to the game's low-intensity graphics, everyone should be able to enjoy this on their Windows 10 phone up to a 32-inch 4K display (I have proven this to be true). It's great to see this popular game arrive for Windows 10 especially considering it is using the new app model. Is is a port? Is it native? We may never know.
