Happy Wheels Characters
The new flash game Happy Wheels based on physics principals in the happywheelsfullversion.net website is hilarious but at the same time has gory visuals which should have been disgusting but the creative graphics makes it a funny thing to watch. The website has a version of the game which is still under development. With four main characters to choose from & different levels to play, the game is definitely a hit for those looking to amuse themselves in their downtimes. The basic aim of the game is to transport the character from one place to another through various obstacles.
Going by the name of the Happy Wheels the game is not exactly a happy journey for the 4 hilarious but miserable characters in the game. With a journey to be completed with obstacles that can cut their limbs or toss their whole damaged torso to far places and blood flowing out like fountain in some scenes. This may sound a bit gory & horrific but this all the game is about in a nutshell.
The 4 characters in the game are seriously funny in their own way. Also there has been addition of a couple of more in future versions of the game. The 4 main characters are as follows:
- Wheel Chair guy who is a beggar & is a cripple. He has to reach his destination through the use of his wheelchair.
- Segway guy is a corporate employee that wheels his way to misfortune. It’s hilarious when he segways himself into a gruesome death in a room of chaos with his body parts flying in the air & tossing around.
- The irresponsible Dad who has a small child sitting at the back of his bicycle. This character is amusing & funny because his son acts as a human shield.
- The fat guy who rides in a shopping cart. His layers of putrid flubb act as a cushion and armor to absorb impacts, which cause less damage to him from obstacles.
The graphics of the game are somewhat cartoony with horrible gory scenes made to look funny. The quality is moderate but this allows no interruptions while playing. You can see the body fly and fling around like a rubber band. Upon a crash, the body parts break & fly apart but on severe trauma the characters get decapitated and blood gushes for about 5 seconds. The more horrific the torture, the bigger the laughs.
The controls can be somewhat confusing at first but you can consult the “controls” menu from the main menu should you forget them. The game levels are all different with different types of obstacles in each one for them to surpass.
The true spirit of the game is the hilariously stupid obstacle course & the damage system which makes for some funny scenes. With the option to edit the stage in the full version of the game, this is surely a success with all those who love gory images served with a dash of humor of ridiculousness.
