Happy Wheels 2 game initially has 15 levels, which may seem a little stingy to those that are naturals at it and complete it with speed, but there is the added bonus of the level creating editor so the possibilities for weird and dangerous challenges are actually wide open.
Happy Wheels 2 is a game that really does not live up to its name; everyone has a set of wheels, of some sort, but they are going to be far from happy when the day is over. This ironic, gory side-scrolling game is one of those simple puzzle games that gets people addicted, like a guilty pleasure, because of the need to complete a difficult level and the desire to see just how big an injury you can really inflict on your character. The aim is to safely master the so-called realistic physics but that isn’t always as fun. With 15 levels, 4 interesting characters and lots of traps, there are plenty of ways to die. The basic premise here is to pick a character, take on a level and reach the other end without getting brutally destroyed by one of the many deadly obstacles that may be lying in wait. There are the traps you might expect, such as holes and sharp spikes, but the appearance of mines and wreaking balls adds a whole other element of danger to proceedings. The game initially has 15 levels, which may seem a little stingy to those that are naturals at it and complete it with speed, but there is the added bonus of the level creating editor so the possibilities for weird and dangerous challenges are actually wide open. The game can take some time to master because even though the levels look like they should be pretty simple, there is a knack to traversing them. It doesn’t take long before a false move has the character flying across the screen with horrific injuries. This where the reputation of this game as a gory one comes in. This is not like games like Trials where the rider merely lands awkwardly with some clearly broken bones and a scream; this is a case of dismemberment and near decapitation as limbs are torn off and chunks of blood and flesh splatter the screen. So who can you send through this perilous world of Happy Wheels 2? At the moment there are 4 different people to choose from. A popular choice is a rather dishevelled and broken looking old man in a wheelchair that has seen better days. Alternatively there is a businessman on the deathtrap that is the segway (with a helmet that is surely not going to save him), a father on a pushbike with the worrying addition of his son strapped to a seat on the back and, last but not least, an obese man (or perhaps a women, it is hard to tell) on a mobility scooter with their shopping in the front basket. This is a game growing in popularly and potential. The idea to make Happy Wheels 2 available on the iOS app store is one that has been welcomed by players because not only is this a popular game – apparently with billions of players across the world – it makes game play much easier than trying to play online. In addition to this the app has plenty of fun extra features to make it more competitive, like the Game Center leaderboard. This is a game that can grow and grow with new options and better tech and there will be many players trying to either save or kill that ill-prepared business man for a long time to come
