Puzzle games are usually created to put your brain to the test in order to find the solution to mind-bending conundrums. Even though some of these games are created just for this purpose, there are some, like Karoshi, which were designed from the ground up to also keep you entertained and occasionally burst in incontrollable laughter.

Highly entertaining and brain challenging platformer puzzle game for the Mac

Karoshi is a free, minimalist and tongue-in-cheek platformer themed puzzle that forces you to think of the most intricate ways to kill your character in order to reach the next level.

Albeit it sounds rather grim, the actual gameplay proved to be quite entertaining, and its simple graphics and the absolutely hilarious and delightful soundtrack allow it to provide you with one of the most fulfilling experiences possible.

The game's levels get more complex as you advance and killing your character transforms into an almost impossible mission

Don’t be fooled by the game’s simple looks and its predominantly humorous accents because, as soon as you’ve reached level 5, things get really serious. There’s no more playing around and trying to commit suicide in the virtual world of Karoshi will prove to be quite a daunting task.

Karoshi provides you with 25 bewildering levels to solve and a final boss level designed to put your freshly acquired self assassination skills to the supreme test.

Karoshi's devious point of view of suicide will make you employ all sorts of intricate schemes to obliterate yourself

While playing the game, you will see that killing Karoshi is not at all an easy task. From jumping into spikes to making him part of an electrical circuit, you will be kept guessing on what are the next murder tools provided to you by Karoshi’s developers. Sometimes, even an innocent looking cube can be the ultimate slaughter machine, if you’re smart enough to set everything just right so that it falls right on Karoshi’s head.

Taking all of the above into consideration, this is an hysterically funny game which provides you with countless hours of mind twisting puzzles that, once solved, should make it easy for you to help Karoshi get his daily dose of suicide.
