Hello everyone, HI TOM!

Here's my first submission in nearly 7 years. Sorry about that.

This is a demo of Happy Wheels. Choose your inadequately prepared racer, and ignore severe consequences in your desperate search for victory.

Newgrounds is the first home for Happy Wheels outside of my own site. If you haven't seen it yet, please check out the free full version at, where lots of people will be sharing their upsetting contributions.

If you are too lazy to look at the controls menu:

up and down for accelerate and decelerate/reverse
left and right for leaning
spacebar, ctrl, shift for specific character actions
z to eject
once ejected, you can grab onto whatever your hands are touching with spacebar, or press the arrow keys to move into different poses/writhe around on the ground

The Review:
*sigh* This game has far too much attention.

Okay, let's review this properly, the game starts off with some cheesy guitar riffs before a disabled fat lady with a spork or an angry homeless man with bandages in a wheelchair moves onto the screen punching or stabbing the Happy Wheels Logo, I think the Happy Wheels logo should be stabbing them instead although it doesn't make much difference because everyone in this game dies at some point.
You can either play a level or make you own with the level editor, which is the only reason this game exists anyway.
Clicking Play Game will take you to the featured level screen, which as quite a few featured levels with more being added every few months. These levels are probably the only good levels to play on with the exception of Rope Swing.
In the top right of the featured levels page is the "user level browser" to be honest I don't know why that doesn't have any capital letters on it, it drives me crazy.
Anyway these "user levels" are mostly crap and repeated, in fact, here is a list on all types of Happy Wheels levels that I have seen and played.

-Normal (Unique name and level)
-Impossible level (Not impossible)
-Impossible level (Actually impossible)
-1% possible or 99% impossible(Usually nearly impossible)
-Don't move (literally don't do anything -in my opinion this takes away gameplay-)
-Survive the fall (move at the right speed and angle to fall into a pit filled with spikes and reach the end)
-Ball throw (Usually with the Segway guy, reach and throw balls into pits to apparently earn points even though you don't)
-Sword throw (The same as the Ball throw but with swords that you throw at people)
-Obstacle Course (Usually a very badly made obstacle course that requires no skill at all)
-Quiz (Ride your character into the correct hole to answer quiz-like questions that are usually wrong)
-Neon (any of the above but with supposedly added neon glows that are usually badly made)

So as you can tell, the community for Happy Wheels are 7-year olds, and while I don't mind this appealing to a certain audience, when I played this game, I felt no sense of seriousness or progression.
I know what you are about to say, "Madjasper, the game isn't meant to be serious, it is supposed to be funny and cool" but to you I say "Shut up, the game has high amounts of blood, what isn't serious about that? If you play this game you a killing animated characters either by stabbing them, dislocating them or blowing them up, which is VERY SERIOUS, DEATH IS A SERIOUS SUBJECT AND SHOULD BE CONSIDERED CAREFULLY UNLESS YOU KILLING A COMPLETE DRUG ADDICT OR PSYCHOPATH"
Sorry about that, now onto the progression, you play a level, you complete it, that is it, you don't get anything else other than a time, then you can rate the level from 0 to 5 stars IF you have an account with, unlike Newgrounds people who aren't logged in cannot vote, which I feel is a form of discrimination.
You probably want me to talk about the characters, so I will, the characters you can currently play as are:

-Wheelchair guy (A homeless disabled man with a booster on a wheelchair)
-Segway Guy (A Man in a business on a segway that jumps)
-Irresponsible Dad (A man on a bike with a child sat behind him who obviously has been abused)
-Effective Shopper (A fat women with a jumping motorized scooter, she has groceries with her)
-Moped Couple (A man an women on a Moped with a booster)
-Lawnmower Man (A man on a jumping lawnmower, this guy can grind anything except the ground into pieces if it gets underneath his lawnmower)
-Explorer Guy (An Indiana Jones-looking guy in a mine cart)
-Santa Claus (Santa Claus on a sleigh that moves by making elves run)
-Pogostick man (The worst character in my opinion, a guy with a lump in his trousers on a pogostick)
-Irresponsible Mom (A woman on a bike with a a little girl riding on the back, and a baby in a basket, presumably this baby is going to be either eaten or sold by the woman)

So yeah, unoriginal names for the characters.
I said currently because their are more character slots, 15 of them to be exact, although I've played this game for a long time and I haven't seen any new characters whatsoever.

Oh sorry I didn't even get to the controls, the controls are simple enough, up arrow to accelerate, down arrow to brake, left and right to lean. Their are some other things like Z to launch your character off their vehicle, and space to grab something after being launched, and left shift and ctrl to do other actions, but really they are useless for most levels.

The physics in this game work like they are supposed to and to be honest, watching someone getting dislocated is entertaining for a few minutes, until you realize you killed someone brutally and you've pretty much committed murder.

SO. Is this game any go- hold on. You want me to talk about the level editor? Look unless the level editor allows me to create a unicorn flavored biscuit or a flying cock that shoots strawberries that increase your health it's not worth talking about, seriously, all you do is drag and drop preset shapes and objects and the make the level either playable to any character or just to one character, which I feel is another form of discrimination.

So like I was saying before, is this game any good? If you don't understand what murder is, then yes this game is for you. But for me, the game lacks any seriousness or objective, so their really isn't much to this other than a shitty community of 7-year old's telling you to "RATE 5 ON MY LVL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOOOOOOOOOL!!!!"
