    As long as you aren't offended by the dark humor and enjoy a good retro platform puzzler, I think it's safe to say that Karoshi is a real winner.

    But the respite of grisly death doesn't come easy in YoYo Games' latest 2D platformer. You have to plan his demise with military precision and careful timing if you're to make the pain end.

    At $0.99, Karoshi is an easy recommendation. It's weird and inventive, and it's a game that I'll probably find myself showing to friends for a long time to come.

    The ingenious level designs and dark humor of Karoshi is worth occasionally fighting the controls for.

    Karoshi delivers the goods every step of the way. It has tricky puzzles, 8-bit presentation, two game modes, loads of creativity, and a ton of humor. For fans of retro-style gaming, Karoshi is one of the best you'll find on the App Store.

    Karoshi isn't your typical puzzle platformer and attempting to kill yourself is harder than it sounds; a great pickup for those who don't mind a bit of dark humor.

    It's a fun if not twisted game. We just wish the designers included more than nine in-game achievements. Other than that small and borderline silly issue, Karoshi is a unique puzzle game that also serves as a reminder to never miss vacation time.

    It's a game that's easy to play in short sessions, and will no doubt challenge even the most brainy puzzle-platforming fans.

    For those who suffer the same fate as Karoshi, this game maybe a good stress buster.
