Though covered in blood and gore, this dark and tricky physics-based puzzling arcade game is funny for some and horrifying for others. Though the violence is over-the-top on purpose and meant to appeal to a certain kind of humor, it's pretty intense. The use of kids and a man in a wheelchair only ups the ante.The game is broken apart into level sets and each level set utilizes a different character.
The entirety of Happy Wheels revolves around moving a guy on a Segway through gauntlet of deadly traps and to a finish line. All of the (currently) 15 levels host a different layout and plenty of surprises to catch players off-guard. The protagonist can suffer an impressive amount of bodily harm to boot, allowing players to continue their attempt long after a normal person would have passed out from the sheer shock of having their limbs ripped out.
Players even have the ability to crawl onwards, after their Segway has broken, with floppy limb controls that reminded me of QWOP. It’s all a bloody mess, but it’s ridiculous enough to where it’s just plain funny.
