Happy Wheels is a side-scrolling ragdoll physics game. Using one of several unique characters, you have to navigate through the levels without being torn limb from limb. Sound easy? Think again. Happy Wheels was one of the earliest browser games to utilize absurd ragdoll physics as a key element of the game.

Happy Wheels

Happy Wheels came out in 2010 and took the web-browser gaming world by storm with its wild mechanics, bizarre characters, and elaborate user-created levels. Still available in its original form today, you can explore the ingenious levels created by players and try out the various characters.

Levels

You can play through a variety of original and user-created levels in Happy Wheels. There's a countless selection to choose from, some of which are easier to play through with certain characters. Depending on the level, you could find yourself riding your wheelchair through someone's stomach or plowing through a forest on an angry cat.

The goal of each level varies, from reaching the end to collecting all the tokens. Some levels are entirely aimless. You can also design your own and share them with the rest of the world for testing.

Characters

The Original 4

The characters in Happy Wheels are far from conventional in a platformer. Instead of having superpowers, you're pretty much a regular guy. The first character is Wheelchair Guy, a slightly ragged-looking older man in a jet-powered wheelchair. As you can imagine, a jet-powered wheelchair is pretty tough to control without causing severe injury.

Segway Guy, on the other hand, he's a bit more manageable, and a common choice among seasoned Happy Wheels gamers. The other two original game characters are Irresponsible Dad (who rather irresponsibly has his kid on the back seat), and Effective Shopper, who rides a mobility scooter.

Each character in Happy Wheels has an ability unique to them. Segway Guy can jump, and Wheelchair Guy can turbo boost his jet thrusters to move faster. Learn more about the Happy Wheels character abilities.

Newer Characters

As Happy Wheels continued to provide endless gory entertainment for the gaming world, several new characters were released. These include the creatively named Moped Couple, Lawnmower Man, Explorer Guy, Santa Claus, Pogo Stick Man, Irresponsible Mom, and Helicopter Man.

Similar Games

Is there even a game quite like Happy Wheels? Well, since the game's inception, there have been plenty of games with whacky ragdoll physics and intricate mechanics. One such challenging game is Short Life 2, a mercilessly bloody game where you awkwardly control a ragdoll man like a puppeteer through various deadly obstacles.

DEUL is a different take on ragdoll physics, where you must draw and shoot quicker than your opponent, sending them flailing wildly through the air.
