Happy Wheels is browser based physics vehicle game where players control a range of unusual vehicles with the aim of completing the goals and challenges in that level. While each level has a different objective, they’re mostly focused around reaching the finish line for that level. However, some levels require the player to destroy a certain target or collect different items.
Each level has a different playable character and it’s possible to play any level despite never finishing the previous ones. Each character in the game uses a different type of vehicle which is poorly designed for the level. It includes characters such as the Lawnmower mad, Wheelchair guy and Pogostick man who all use unique methods of transport.
There are over 30 different levels in the game for players to select from and complete. It also features user-created levels which has added a huge amount of new levels to the game with unique challenges and entertaining characters.
Happy Wheels is a unique browser based game that offers a huge amount of playtime with entertaining gameplay. It’s stiff competition on the race track with the newest game from Fancy Force called Happy Wheels. It’s a fight to the finish as players must overcome horrendous obstacles and risky twists and turns.
The notable violence is actually a refreshing change from other racing games where players seem to be immune to any physical damage. What was once a battlefield with god-mode permanently turned on (other than quick regenerations from saved checkpoints), the race track now sports a graphic array of death scenes when players make a wrong turn. This is exactly the effect the game’s creators wanted. The main developer and artist for Happy Wheels has spoken out about his frustration with games that aren’t realistic. Needless to say, he went above and beyond for his newest creation.
Happy Wheels has all the charm and development of a well thought out Flash game, which is what the game originally used as a platform. Fortunately for the more mobile generation, it’s also available as an iPhone app. The game is only available in its full version on the creator’s site, but several other websites have been allowed to host demo versions. Happy Wheels has many levels of its own, but players can also upload their own levels. The count of user-generated levels is now well over 5 million and continues to grow, as the game has garnered billions of plays worldwide.
The game’s characters are a series of bizarre miscreants and undesirables of society that have names such as Irresponsible Dad, Segway Guy and, dear goodness… Santa Claus. Each have their own abilities and controls that give them advantages and disadvantages. Wheelchair Guy, for example, has a rocket-powered wheelchair that can fire its jets at the critical moment. There are even controls for after you’ve ejected yourself from the burning wreck of your car as you drag yourself to the finish line. That’s assuming you survive, of course.
