Nobody likes to be rushed when their creativity is flowing, but Dumb Ways to Draw forces you to trade fine art for fast art. And you better keep up; the very lives of quirky cartoon characters are depending on you.
So, no pressure then!
A spin-off of the popular Dumb Ways to Die, this game’s rapid-fire puzzles are all about helping likably goofy, anthropomorphic beans saunter safely across your screen. They move automatically – you just have to make sure they avoid injury.
That, however, is easier said than done. As well as the beans being unfortunately accident prone, each level is teeming with danger. Fortunately, your artistic abilities can help.
A bean needs to cross a big pit? Just draw a little bridge with your finger. When one is trying to avoid a deadly bee sting, corner the insect off with a swiftly drawn arch. These challenges quickly grow in difficulty, requiring increasingly inventive solutions to troublesome predicaments.
Open a door blocking your path by drawing a line so that it falls down on a big red button. Or draw a barrier around a bean to protect it from a massive boulder. Just never dawdle – if a bean gets stuck for too long, it explodes. Impatient little things.
The charming characters, pleasing pastel colours, and creative conundrums of Dumb Ways to Draw will all pull you in. Just make sure you’re quick on the draw!
