As reported previously on Creativity, Metro Trains and McCann Melbourne are keeping their award-winning Dumb Ways to Die campaign fresh with some new sports-themed games. The app for "The Games" has now launched on iTunes, where players can have fun with a whole host of new cartoon characters competing in such challenges as a dolphin rodeo, electric fence hurdling and More.
