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.

Hey I'm having trouble with my fullscreen option? It just goes in the corner and the rest is black. Please fix it, as I know it isn't just my computer. :) Thanks! Please take this to consideration to fix as it only goes fullscreen after several attempts of restarting and logging back in. :)

You should add the sound effects that can't be played by sound effect triggers to sound effect triggers. I need them for a level.

I love the iOS version of happy wheels but it would be better if you could browse user levels like the pc version of happy wheels only on

Hello you are cool !
By Bert on August 07, 2017

@TheBlueJay123: There isn't anything that can be done about it. Esc is required to exit full-screen Flash content and cannot be overridden as far as I know. Changing it to Tab was the only option. Pressing Tab while in the game shouldn't change focus to anything else, as the game should be taking control of keyboard input.
By HappyDead23 on August 06, 2017

cuando sacaran happy wheels para android y porfavor que se pueda jugar con teclado
By TheBlueJay123 on August 05, 2017

I hate the pause thing, big screen is glitchy and I wouldn't have to play in big screen if the pause thing wasn't changed to tab. Why is it set to tab anyway? And you should make a way to change the keybindings because its ridiculous and annoying because I can't do tab-R in small screen because it moves the computers focus to something else. So I have to click reset with my mouse. Why you do this?

Como me puedo descargar happy wheels para android?
By JUSTMEDJ YT on July 07, 2017

By oscario3 on July 07, 2017

@D J A Y: I know I would. Especially if it would light up another spark of interest from people, encouraging Jim to not give up on Happy Wheels yet. I think it would probably do pretty well if he put it on steam, just look at what happened to the app!
By D J A Y on July 07, 2017

Real Question If happy wheels 2 comes out...will any of you actually be interested in it?
By Bert on July 07, 2017

@Joman66: That is awesome! It's interesting to see how many of us have stuck around this whole time.
By Pamplopo on July 06, 2017

Jim has a very broad definition of "soon."
By Xy Maximus yX on July 06, 2017

By oscario3 on July 06, 2017

I love this game, the concept and design are great. The only reason it isn't as popular (anymore) is because it feels like it has been abandoned. The only hope is that a lot of stuff is happening behind the scenes, but I fear the worst.
By xxX_mr_fier_Xxx on July 05, 2017

Yes! Finally! Android version!
By ACHIEVERjunior on July 03, 2017

Oh the times they are a-changin'
By Joman66 on July 03, 2017

@Bert (and folks after).. my twin brother's account is the 26th account to be made on this website while mine is the 1867th! Brother: Me: I remember when grabbing in the game was based on timing rather than holding down to "glue" grab.
By Bert on July 02, 2017

@Mystic: Yeah, you have a point. Seeing some news on the sequel would be nice. In terms of YouTubers ruining it, that's just how it is nowadays. You can't make something popular without a cringeworthy fanbase spawning and people seeing it as a free revenue train for them. Think of the millions these clickbait "YouTubers" have made off Happy Wheels, and I doubt a cent went to helping Jim with anything. I can't even do anything on here anymore because the admin site is dead.
By Mystic on July 02, 2017

They ruined it like they ruined Minecraft. Anyone remember playing that game during pre-alpha? Jim's stance on Happy Wheels is probably the same as Notch's on Minecraft. It's just a source of free money at this point. Bert, maybe the sequel? I feel YouTubers have lost interest in Happy Wheels at this point so if that game ever gets released the community won't go to **** (if there will be a community).
By D J A Y on July 02, 2017

Let's not even mention characters like santa,pogo stick man and heli copter guy...there's literally hundreds of other characters that could have been added and why not work with the community to build the game?...
