Notes on iOS update 1.0.6 and Android
By Jason on December 16, 2016

When I began work on the iOS version of Happy Wheels, I questioned whether or not it would be accepted into the App Store at all. I found examples of bleeding limbs, gibs, blood explosions and screams in iOS games, but no one example seemed to put all these effects together like Happy Wheels does. Also, at the time, the App Store guidelines were intentionally vague in places, "What is objectionable content? We know it when we see it." So I submitted our little game and breathed a sigh of relief when it was accepted with a 12+ age rating.

However, the App Store and its guidelines are living, breahting entities that change over time. Eventually one of our updates was reviewed by someone who felt the violence was not "cartoon/fantasy", but "realistic", requiring an age rating of 17+ (and banishment from the Brazilian App Store–Sorry, Brazil!). We didn't love this as many Happy Wheels players are below the age of 17, but we went along with it and really nothing seemed to change. Goody.

But then the App Store issued an objection which was not as easily remedied: inury to Irresponsible Dad's child. We were always a bit concerned that this might be an issue and if so, how would we work around it? We ended up going with the obvious solution which was to disable injury to the child. Before anyone throws their arms up in angry protest, I suggest you try it. The child can fall off the bike and will ragdoll, but always remains intact. If you find this lack of violence utterly offensive, let us know. We're considering an alternate solution.

Because of the aforementioned changes, it was easy to implement the option to remove blood/gore from all characters. This option can be found in the Option > Advanced Options. This was request made by a few people... very few.

With that out of the way, the update 1.0.6 also includes levels 1-5 for Wheelchair Guy.

I am actively working on the Android version. After other solutions failed, I decided to go with a pure C++ rewrite of the code. This is unfortunately the best, but slowest solution. At this point, I've got the base characters working as well as couple of the vehicles. It's a good start, but it's still a ways off. Sorry about that. I'd give a more specific timeframe, but I would be guessing and probably inaccurately.

Jim says that he'll update the blog soon.

By rai_san_2003 on February 19, 2017

hey guys plz make jumpscares less or i will okay more games plz make it more interesting and little scary ....hope u will work on it .....^_^
By TotalGamer578 on February 18, 2017

OK. I'm glad to see that some (kind of) famous level creators are still posting levels. Most of them just quit forever.
By Killer Cheese on February 18, 2017

@GHAIS: You really think the violence toward a child in Happy Wheels would encourage people to murder children in real life? That's a dumb argument.
By TotalGamer578 on February 17, 2017

He doesn't look through the comments. Try emailing him.
By Maciek1788 on February 17, 2017

Good for you.
By tylerskovdal4178 on February 15, 2017

I wish there's new characters there :/
By da blue lizard on February 15, 2017

lol okay
By GHAIS on February 14, 2017

@Cool Replay Master, Demonstrations of child/animal abuse, drug usage, sexual content, or any other action which could influence players into performing these bad practices is a no-no if you want to receive a good rating for your game. I'm sure this won't apply in Android's play store since it's much better and tolerant, but IOS' App store is pretty strict, and- Wait, why am I explaining this? The post already did that. Well..

By TotalGamer578 on February 11, 2017

He has a life beyond this game. What about friends? What about family? Ever think of that?
By Manavjoshi on February 11, 2017

But it has been 1 year and you didn't add pogo stick guy and santa
By TotalGamer578 on February 11, 2017

Jim is doing the best he can. You guys should stop making demands of him.
By HulioTheChicken on February 11, 2017

Make it for android. It is getting bigger than iPhone/Apple so it is pointless not to.
By TotalGamer578 on February 11, 2017

He hasn't even finished the 2nd game, why would he make 2 MORE?
By filipbas on February 11, 2017

I DARE YOU: MAKE HAPPY WHEELS FOR XBOX ONE AND ANDROID!
By TotalGamer578 on February 10, 2017

I give up on this post. It's a complete wreck. Hopefully the next post will be better,
By Cool Replay Master on February 10, 2017

I do find this lack of violence offensive (i am talking about Irresponsible dads child because then in the death traps you put in the levels the kid won't die no matter how hard you try how come if you turn gore off dad gets killed and remains intact and the child doesn't?
By mymystar23 on February 09, 2017

Hi
By CONNORY2002 on February 09, 2017

TotalGamer578- The first guy telling me the life lesson about family. Just as i said.
By CONNORY2002 on February 09, 2017

I'm not butthurt about the fact that family time exists. It bothers me that every "COming SOon" is the same. also you shouldn't attempt to be better than someone when you still use words such as "Go Die". Because that just points out the fact that you're yet another kid trying to hard for self satisfaction.
By TotalGamer578 on February 08, 2017

Oh, shut up, Connor. Sorry that you're butthurt that Jim wants to spend time with is family, and not on brats like you. Go die.
By CONNORY2002 on February 08, 2017

Maybe, That's because "Soon" is just a trick to keep us buckled up for 4 months :P It's getting on the nerves of the 95%
By xXB anditTheifXx on February 07, 2017

I LIKE THIS GAME :)
By Pacman42120 on February 07, 2017

Is happy wheels two actually being made or is it just a joke?
By Bert on February 07, 2017

At times I feel the comment section should just be turned off since 95% of comments posted are just pointless. I miss the forums.
By cooldude25 on February 05, 2017

Please make happy wheels on android I have been waiting forever so please do that and ill make a youtube video if you make it.
By Da_Cryin_Appl on February 05, 2017

JIM HELP ME! MY HAPPY WHEELS ISNT WORKING
By CONNORY2002 on February 05, 2017

And not only that, When someone leaves a comment like i just did there's always one or two cocky smartasses acting like they know just how to treath me. With their life lessons of howl ife works outside computer screens. Real smooth dummies.
By CONNORY2002 on February 05, 2017

Welcome to happy wheels. Here we'll wait for a angry horde of thirsty gamers to beg for another update. Then, we'll build up a hype wall for 7 months and then...... FUCK YOU! A bug fix of something that never bothered you is all you get!
By CONNORY2002 on February 05, 2017

Good for you XxLiberator627xX. Sadly, the comment section of a info post isn't the best place to be bragging about a dumb daily fact. Try youtube for instance. There you'll get critisized enough to realise how annoying your kind is.
By XxLiberator627xX on February 05, 2017

Well If Its A 17+ So What. I'm 10 And I Play HW ios
By K9Gaming1551 on February 04, 2017

Ok to solve this problem you can make a blood feature in the options menu and automatically put it on no blood. If they like that there is blood and limbs falling of and little bobby getting hurt they can turn it off but if they restrict that I cant really help you I don't know what else to do but I am glad that I could attempt to help you solve this problem. This is one of my favorite games in all the worlds if this does not help your IOS and android game problem I sadly cant help you. -K9Gaming1551 If this does help you and you need more advise to make your game better contact me at K9Gaming1551@gmail.com

By doctordoom55 on January 21, 2017

Its a big shame that irresponsible dad's son was made to be immortal! I loved to sacrifice him and crush him and everything that makes happy wheels special. everyone should remember the level where the son gets chucked into a crusher, well that's gone now!

@kdlp @TotalGamer578 Alright, reel it in. No more death threats or slur nonsense from either of you. --W&S
By Bert on January 05, 2017

@kdlp: Wow, no need to be so rude. All they're doing is helping get rid of more rule-breaking levels. Thanks for the notice TotalGamer578, I've deleted them.
By TotalGamer578 on January 05, 2017

@Bert, there's a user named I Hack Games For Fun that you should see. It's... bad.

I didn't know that it was on the Google Play Store. I must be blind.
By Joman66 on January 02, 2017

Happy Wheels on Android will be awesome! I wonder what the next new character will be and how long before it's released.
