Trivia[]

  • In the old version of the minigame Flappy Stupe, the player had to blow or scream into the mic to make the plane go up. Also, this game could be disabled through the Settings for some players who don't have the device with a mic to clear the minigame. This lasts until October 19, 2016, when they had tweaks.
  • The minigame Hunting Season was added on August 1, 2013 and modified in September 2013, and again in 2016. It used to be 3 to 5 holes, then it was 2 to 5 holes, now it's 1 to 5 holes, but without challenge with 2 holes.
  • In September 2013, the mini-game Throw Up Clean Up was modified to be easier due to some complaints.
  • In the old version of the minigame Stand Firm, the splashed super glue around Calamity wasn't seen and she wasn't sticked by that after her death, just like the video Dumb Ways to Die suggest. Also, Calamity was referred as a male.
  • In the minigame Spaceman Splat, Numskull was initially referred as male in Dumb Ways to Die (application) game, which is now modified correctly as "Guide the astronaut back to her helmet!" posterior to the ver. 2.9.0 update.
  • During the debut of the minigame Bird Blunder in the Halloween update, an exploit consists of keeping Putz in the air until the timer is up. The Christmas update fixed this by adding another bird.
  • In some previous versions of the game[citation needed], there was a glitch that created a yellow screen and the player could not do anything which includes pausing the app and exiting; therefore, the player had to reset the app in order to resolve the glitch.
