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.

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!

@ShadowSquid12, I totally agree.
By ShadowSquad12 on January 18, 2017

jim take as long as you want happy wheels is awesome and if we have to wait for a android version we will
By metalmaker on January 17, 2017

You should try and put happy wheels on google play
By RMD_GAMES on January 16, 2017

while your trying to put it on 2 platforms, IOS and android, can you think about getting it on the Amazon Appstore? im a kindle user so i would love to have it on my kindle. thanks :)

NNNNNNNOOOOOOOO I WANT TO KILL THE KID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
By _boxing_aze_ on January 12, 2017

add happy wheels on android
By TotalGamer578 on January 11, 2017

To literally everyone here: If not being able to smash a 4-year old's head in is offensive, you're weird. You still have 4-5 other perfectly fine characters you can dismember all you want. Stop being so ungrateful.
By carl_johnsons_eyes on January 10, 2017

Hmmm this explain why there are no pc updates
By Ryan_2003 on January 08, 2017

It is freaking retarded that you had to get rid of the kid being hurt for IOS, I have the app on IOS, and that makes it a lot more boring, pls fix that

By Wings and Strings on January 07, 2017

@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.
By TotalGamer578 on January 05, 2017

Please stop asking for updates. Jim is working as hard as he can for you guys.
By TotalGamer578 on January 03, 2017

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.
By TotalGamer578 on January 01, 2017

I'm sure that whatever he ends up making here it'll be good.
By El_Kikis_YT on January 01, 2017

PLZ put happy wheels on Google Play
By oscario3 on January 01, 2017

@KingWoloWolo Exactly
By KingWoloWolo on January 01, 2017

You know what man, do what you need to do, I support it. On a side note: I have been playing this game since 2011 I believe, and I gotta say, I don't really know if the app store is where your player base is at. I do not know the analytics, but I am willing to be that for the most part, this website has been having a downward decline on users for the past 3-4 years, and I think the sole reason for that is nothing really changes here, and when it does, it's just been t0o long. If you want us to care about your game, we have to also feel like you care about it. Some comments below are criticizing how slow you work because that's just somehow what they now expect from you, that's not good. But hey, I can empathize, perhaps you work very hard and diligently, and coding for this game is just a pain in the **** Haven't you switch the code you use to compile this once? If you are writing this game yourself that can also take forever. Or, maybe you just want to live your life, it's okay.
By TotalGamer578 on December 31, 2016

Watch Jim's post deadline turn from "soon" to 6 months.
By Metal04 OFFICIAL on December 31, 2016

@Bert Thank you very much for the help! I installed a new Adobe Flash Player and it works now. Thank you!!! Happy new year.
By domster on December 31, 2016

Well the happy wheels app might still be available on the portuguese app store so brazilians can create a portuguese itunes account and download it from there.
By kdlp on December 31, 2016

Did I leave a window open? I think I just heard a fly whiz by. @TotalGamer578
By Carlos00love on December 31, 2016

By TotalGamer578 on December 30, 2016

KDLP, your level violates the official Jerkface Rules BECAUSE: It's inappropriate. THINK. You're making a level and creating naked skins for characters. It's inappropriate and sexual. It doesn't matter if it works. It needs TO STOP. NOW.
By ploffles on December 30, 2016

wiggity wiggity whaaaaat son ohhhhhhhh snap homeskillet if ray ray come poppin up n the hood u dont go squealin like no piggy to da johhny law mmm no you keep yo mouth shuuuuuuut if you know whass good for ya oh yea im dead inside
By kdlp on December 30, 2016

Barely anyone rates unless you trick them into it. If there was a menu that pops up upon exiting the level that asks you to leave a rating, then I would spend more time on levels.
By Bert on December 30, 2016

@Metal04 OFFICIAL: Either update your Flash Payer or your browser isn't letting it run. Try checking your add-ons to see if Flash is still functioning. @kdlp: Regardless, you asked users to rate 5, and depictions of nudity aren't allowed on the game. Also, why do you care so much? These "naked girl" levels are so mass-spammed and completely pointless. There is no effort or anything remotely fun in them. Try putting some work instead into a unique level that users would want to play.
By Metal04 OFFICIAL on December 30, 2016

The plugins that run the game are not loading. There is either a dialog saying 'right click to run adobe flash player' or a dialog saying 'couldn't load plugin'. Bert, please help!!!
By kdlp on December 30, 2016

Berts done a good job at deleting my levels and threatening to ban me, my level actually works though.
By TotalGamer578 on December 30, 2016

Jim has really been slacking off with moderating levels. We need a new rules page, the "Flag" button, and moderators that don't go AFK for a year. I'm tired o seeing Naked Glitch levels, rate 5 levels, and spam levels that have a million random objects! We need to fix Happy Wheels, or the community will end up killing itself! Who thinks we HAVE to fix this?
By kdlp on December 29, 2016

I spent an hour or more on it one night
By ploffles on December 29, 2016

I want to fill a fire hydrant with an uncontrollable splurge of my love.
By amazing47322 on December 29, 2016

PLS put on playstore aka samsung PLS
By SwiftyPlays on December 29, 2016

ok im glade they accepted it yay!
By Bert on December 29, 2016

@kdlp: Yep, because saying "rate 5" on your level totally doesn't break level rules. Also, if "spent a while on it" means 5 minutes, then you really need to rethink your concept of time. Do not repost the level again or your account will be banned.
By TotalGamer578 on December 28, 2016

I have no idea. But, (don't kill me), I heard that FNaF 5 was ported, and it worked fine.
By mosti daniel on December 28, 2016

Would it be a good idea to use Adobe Air and port the game? If you had tried it, I'm sorry.
By filipbas on December 28, 2016

Hello Jason, i think if you cloud make level editor in mobile version? Also i got a idea if you cloud add happy wheels for nokia lumia and android phones that would be good!!! also i want to say that, i want more characters if you cloud do it i would be glad! PS Merry Chrismas and happy new year!
By NaN Not A Number on December 28, 2016

Hey Jason, I think it would be a great idea if you put a link on the website to access the rules of the game for the moment (maybe you can use the old Level Rules page saved by Web Archive:

Merry Christmas/ Happy New Year goys! I'm sure you're doing a great job of taking care of business on those there handheld devices of which I do not own.

What a politically correct society we have nowadays -_-
By kdlp on December 27, 2016

What reason bert i spent a while on it and deserves to be seen.
By bradcoollyh on December 27, 2016

i hope that the android version gonna be releasd soon
By CONNORY2002 on December 27, 2016

Jim, It's bin about 9 months now you can release your bug fix. Also Jim says he'll updat ethe blog "SOON"? Guys if we're lucky we'll have a new post over 6 months
By Bert on December 27, 2016

@kdlp: I delete your level for a reason and you go ahead and repost it. Don't publish it again.
By kdlp on December 26, 2016

My naked level got deleted and it worked :(
By Bert on December 26, 2016

Wow, are there more "Bottle Flip" (how original, a sword throw but with bottles instead) or "Naked Girl Glitch" levels? Shout out to the mass number of "demo rope swing" levels, because spending 5 minutes making a rope swing is so time consuming it has to be released as a demo. It's pretty sad that I spend more time deleting levels than playing the game.
By 0XDaManX0 on December 26, 2016

I like da blood thx for putting a option though for cartoon queasies.
By DJ_Thanos on December 26, 2016

I think an Android beta would be great so players can find bugs with a "report" feature. Then again it wouldn't be so great because some others will think that the game is trash, which isn't true.
By jacobenikolaicsiao on December 26, 2016

Yay android version... those impostors will never be downloaded again... its best to disable the gore and broken bones from this game in android... or at least put a disabling options to it so it could be accepted in the play store man i think its gonna be the best... i may not be a developer but if i were i would do it... im only just suggesting

I can't wait to see what the Happy Wheels future brings us! :)
By TotalGamer578 on December 24, 2016

Oh, and I mean the 2nd computer version. The mobile is great.
By TotalGamer578 on December 24, 2016

His 2nd game is going to be terrible. He ALREADY said that he plans to charge $5 for level creation.Who wants to play THAT?
By petulakulina1 on December 24, 2016

and what about happy wheels on android?
By anphu04 on December 24, 2016
