Happy Wheels is a platform browser game focused on ragdoll physics developed and released by the American studio Fancy Power. The game was developed by video game designer Jim Bonacci in 2010, and features many player characters who use distinct, often rare, vehicles to navigate the several levels of the game. The game is better known for its graphical abuse and the amount of content created by users by its players.

The tagline of Happy Wheels is “Choose your inadequately prepared racer, and ignore severe consequences in your desperate search for victory!” The exact gameplay rules differ due to the choice of character and level design; characters such as a businessman on a Segway are featured in the game.

The goal of the game also differs depending on the level. The aim in most stages is to hit a starting line or a finish line.

Happy Wheels has received generally positive reviews. GameSetWatch recommended it and IGN called it one of the “Best Free Games”. Reviewers also lauded its level editor and the amount of user-generated content. A core theme of the game is the over-the-top quality of the violence, and it has been found funny by some reviewers; one review claimed that “Playing Happy Wheels is just truly challenging and not just smiling and laughing at the crazy situations in which your character can be ripped into bits.”

Our VR Expert's Review

The gameplay is easy and simple as there’s not much to do in this game. There are no missions and levels in this game. However, you need to complete the level though to reach the next level.

You need to choose your characters first. There are 4 characters available and you need to choose one. Actually, you can choose from only 3 as the other 1 is available only in the full version. While choosing the player, you need to understand that, every character has different skills. So, you need to choose accordingly. Finally, choose the playground you want to play on.

Overall, you need to choose your guy and select the ground you want to play in. And run till the guy is fully broken into pieces. The main objective of this game is to finish the race and complete the level.

The best part about Happy wheels Full is, it’s hard to control the player. In other words, the controls are hard and it’s pretty easy for you to cut your character’s limbs while you make a jump. So, there’s a lot of blood in this game. Therefore, if you think the blood and violence will disturb you or your child who is playing, then you can control that from the options section. Just turn off the blood.


  • Use the arrow keys to move the player. Up arrow for acceleration. Down arrow to slow down and stop. Right arrow to lean forward and Left arrow to lean backward.
  • Shift and Ctrl are for secondary actions.
  • Z to eject.
  • Space to grab after eject.

It can be played very nicely with any VR headset for VRChat, like Oculus Quest 2.
