Karoshi feels a lot like playing Mario, but instead of finishing each level you try to die at every turn. Losing is really winning. Trust me, it's odd.

Removed OpenFeint.

App Description

One of the most popular games on PC now comes exclusively to iPhone and iPad! Karoshi has been played by millions on the PC to date to high acclaim.

•Karoshi 2.0 was “internet game of the month” in EDGE magazine

•Karoshi Suicide Salaryman was in WIRED.com’s top 5 PC Games of 2008

•“Some of the most LOL-worth and mind-bending puzzles I have ever seen” TIGsource on Karoshi 2.0

We've been taught we need to survive. We need to reach the end, save the princess and be the hero. That's all well and good, but it's getting boring. Who says it has to be this way?

Mr Karoshi is an overworked Japanese salaryman who’s had enough and his only goal is to end it all. You control him to work through the fast logic puzzles trying to find hilarious ways to his demise in this highly original, puzzle, platformer with a twist.

It’s not as easy as it sounds!! You need to think cleverly and sometimes ‘outside the box’ to find a solution. Forget everything you know so far!


* 50 levels
* Dark Humor
* Collect all the coins
* Karoshi ware mini game
* From the maker of ‘They Need To Be Fed’
* Catchy soundtrack by Jake Almond

This highly popular, hit, cult game is now available for the first time on iTunes.

*Disclaimer – must have a highly developed sense of humor to appreciate to the fullest :)
