If you can’t find the humor in Adult Swim’s 5 Minutes To Kill (Yourself), you probably haven’t spent much time trapped in a cubicle. The free-to-play flash version is one of my favorite Adult Swim games, and I couldn’t be happier with the recently released iPhone and iPod Touch port.
The premise is ordinary enough; wallowing in the misery of office life, you have five minutes to off yourself before losing your soul to the corporate rat race. It’s no easy feat; committing suicide at work, and you’ll stumble through the workplace harming yourself with whatever is handy: stapler, letter opener, scissors, paper shredders and cutters, Xerox machines, fire extinguishers, employee of the month trophies, and more.
Like other Adult Swim apps, the game is superbly well done. The 5 Minutes To Kill (Yourself) in the App Store looks identical to the Flash version it’s based on; the artwork is beautiful, sound is great, and the gameplay is addicting. The app is only three bucks and is already getting great reviews in the App Store.
