Mobile Browser Game of The Week

So about a month ago, I introduced a new feature on MVGN stating that my newest time killer is playing games in my mobile browser. It’s a nice break from the normal iOS games (although I LOVE me some iOS gaming) and if you’re standing in line somewhere and want to play a quick round of something, playing games in your mobile browser could be just what you need for some entertainment. It may not be for everyone but I have enjoyed it between waiting at the post office or waiting in line at the store so I thought I would share. Today’s “Mobile Game of the Week” is a game called Happy Wheels. Happy Wheels is a fun distraction and is anything but “happy”. The clever spin on words has players trying to maneuver around a number of courses but at the risk of losing your own limbs…. Yes you read that right; players will lose limbs in this crazy “physics racing” game.

Players are encouraged to survive wild courses without losing your limbs and proves to be more difficult than it sounds (although it’s not bad because it turns out to be pretty funny)! Happy Wheels features hilariously gruesome racing action. You can play as an old man in a wheelchair, Segway rider, or bicycling father. Players will also unlock new people and vehicles for even crazier stunts and mayhem.

It’s all fun and games until someone loses a limb and that is almost guaranteed. Happy Wheels kept me entertained for short spurts and did its job of making me smile and laugh in its bite size form. The game will not win any awards in the originality department but it will keep a smile on your face as you watch your poor avatar lose its limbs left and right.
