Happy Wheels is an online game that was made by Jim Bonacci in 2010. Despite the fact that it was made four years ago, from time to time, it is still updated. In terms of genre, this game is a platformer with racing elements. This game is a very popular choice for “Let’s Play” channels on YouTube, partially due to user content creation, but mostly due to the hilarity that is sure to ensue while playing this game.
You can choose to play as one of the eleven different characters in Happy Wheels. In most cases, your objective will be to reach the end of the level. Some of the characters are a man on a pogo stick, a man in a helicopter, a dad and son riding a bike, and a man driving a lawn mower. Some levels restrict you in terms of which characters you can play as.
Currently, there are more than six million user generated levels to choose from. Each day, over 1000 new levels made by users are added. Of course, very few of these levels are actually going to be any good. In fact, many of these levels don’t even deserve to be called a level.
However, due to sheer number of levels, you won’t have trouble finding amazing levels that people have obviously put in a lot of time and effort into. This is especially true since each level has a star rating. Five stars is the highest rating while one star is the lowest. If a level is particularly good, it may be added to the featured levels section on the main screen.
Overall, Happy Wheels has no base story, but you will stumble across some user-generated levels with stories. Of course, don’t expect many of these stories to be any good, however, you may be pleasantly surprised from time to time.
Happy Wheels is well-known for it blood and gore. Whenever the characters lose a limb or explode, you’ll see all the blood and bits of flesh in great detail. If you’d like, you have the option of increasing the quantity of blood that appears. However, if you happen to be squeamish or if you have a slow computer, you can decrease the amount of blood that shows up or disable blood completely. Realize, however, that if you do so, the game won’t seem as outrageous as it did before.
When characters are injured, you will also hear audio that is usually relevant to the injury. If it isn’t relevant to the area of injury, then it is randomly selected. In terms of audio, this online game is most famous for the audio when a character explodes. Overall, the audio for this game is very well done.
As you can see, Happy Wheels is a popular online game, and for very good reason. This game is incredibly fun and unique, as you’ll be hard-pressed to find anything like it. Best of all, the re-playability value of this game is phenomenal due to the sheer number of user-generated content.
