Children in Singapore play game seen on Netflix hit 'Squid Game'

The series from South Korea has gone viral across the world and online by morphing childhood games popular before the digital era such as "Red Light, Green Light" into deadly survival challenges.

In a video filmed on Friday (October 8) in a housing estate in north Singapore, children were seen running and stopping as they heard another child's commands.

The playground game where players stop and go at a tagger's command is one of six kids games with fatal consequences depicted in the gory thriller named after a South Korean variation of tag played in the 1970s and 80s using a board drawn in the dirt.

In the "Red Light, Green Light" episode, the show's first, players are shot for failing to stand still at the red light call.
