video ad problems?
By Jim on September 23, 2017

Hello everyone. I realize I have not made a news post in around 2 years. I think the topic here borders on a slight emergency, so I'm making this one.

Earlier this year google decided, after 7 years, that they no longer felt Happy Wheels was appropriate for their ads. It was fine all that time, but now, after zero changes to my content, it's offensive. In a very slow manner, I've made the effort to replace that revenue by using other ad networks. Flash ads no longer seem to be viable, so, as you may have noticed, I just recently added an html5 ad before Happy Wheels loads.

From my own testing I've not been able to find any bugs, however many of you have reached out to tell me they cannot play the game. If you're having issues loading Happy Wheels, please tell me what you're experiencing in the comments below. Tell me the browser you're using, the operating system, what you see, and any other pertinent information. When I first uploaded the changes, there was indeed a bug that affected 1 of my 2 front end servers which prevented the game from loading. However I fixed that on Friday morning (yesterday). I've still gotten a couple complaints though. If there's an issue, I can't fix it unless I know what it is.

Outside of that, I realize I owe everyone a very long blog post regarding the current state of what the hell I've been doing. The short version is that I'm still just working on the sequel to Happy Wheels, and I'm extremely poor at time estimates. I've been building my own game engine from scratch. Unlike the flash version of Happy Wheels, I've basically had to learn a new language and construct all of my own tools before I could even get to the creative side of things. Logically all the steps I've had to take make sense to me, but actually implementing them is absurdly time consuming. Though daunting, I do find solving each successive problem to be rewarding and educational... I just wish I could magically present everyone with what I'm working towards now rather than at some undetermined point in the future. So, I'm sorry to everyone that I can only now offer more waiting. If anyone cares, I'm doing well, I've made enough money to fund development for however long it takes, I will put in as much detail as I feel necessary, I'm currently working on the editor, I've made significant progress, and I think I will make an excellent game worthy of everyone's time. Hopefully it will become the fully featured platform I always wanted Happy Wheels to be. Blah blah blah.

*The issue should be fixed as far as I can tell. If it's not please complain in this Happy Wheels discord here:

Hi, i don't know if this matters, but it looks like an ad is about to load, but then my game comes up. So ads are still not working, ok?

Hi Jim! I know I shouldn't have noticed this but I have. I was making a backup account and noticed that you have to upgrade your recaptcha service to V2. It'd be great if you could update it
By zazaq207 on March 18, 2018

By Tittarelli on March 15, 2018

By DarkWolf590 on March 15, 2018

listen i think you need to ask microsoft or sony to review your game and see if they want to add to theyre xbox games or ps4 games. if you make the game just like 5 dollars. many ppl will buy your game youll gets lot of money for this sequel

So when did you start on happy wheels 2? Suggestion: Can you add guns? A glock uzi and a sniper? maybe a shot gun???
By yolothug on February 13, 2018

I really hope you try your best with working on the game man... I wondered why the game hasn't updated since but now I understand. I hope you're doing okay and take your precious time with making the game looking pretty good!
By Anastazja on February 13, 2018

Hi Jim! Just wanted to let you know that when you come onto the site and click 'Get Adobe Flash Player', you have to wait for the site to load, THEN you can play. if you dont do that then the game doesnt load at all. Just FYI.
By Bert on February 11, 2018

@blaze4836: Well obviously. By default Flash is disabled on Tor due to how vulnerable it is.
By wolvesofjs on February 08, 2018

When will Happy Wheels 2 come out? There should be new characters :P and maybe walking capability
By Franco798798 on February 07, 2018

This will probably not help, but I can play amazingly in Google Chrome at Windows 10.
By blaze4836 on February 05, 2018

cant play on tor
By Bar Code on February 04, 2018

Hey Jim, I have a problem loading the game. I have Windows 7 Professional and I use Google Chrome. When I open the site and I go to HW I see that the ad blocks are at the midlle of the screen, **** the game, and the game doesn't run, It's just black. It's weird 'cause sometimes happens and sometimes doesn't. Please fix it, we would all apreciate it! I hope you understanded me and my shitty explanation.

By LWPeterson on January 10, 2018

What? Bert made a comment that's suspiciously similar to mine? Interesting.
By JessieLee123 on January 09, 2018

Hey guys, if anybody wants a free account, mine is up for grabs. There is no catch, I just don't want my account anymore. I haven't deleted my levels but you can do that pretty easily. My e-mail is and my p a s s w o r d is erina123.
By DeliriousDog on January 09, 2018

By LWPeterson on December 21, 2017

I can imagine this game not being crap if like, it was updated at least once every other month.
By Frenchpat_1980 on December 20, 2017

Hey man! Whats up?! My name is Brandon and I am currently going to college for gaming and graphic design and development. Not that thats a big deal, but I love the game! I would love to maybe contribute in the future. My son is 14 and is the one who introduced me to it and since then been kind of addicted and cant wait for the sequel!! Its mostly the idea is one all its own and Ive be around gaming since gaming has been a thing (atari, intellevision, and collecovision) all the way up till even now. With all the different platforms that are available now a days one would think that new game ideas would be an easy task, however indeed not! But your game is legitimately genuine. I mean everything now made is a copy of something else just a bit different. Not original ideas.. too many 1st person shooters and RPG and blah blah blah. All Im sayin is I appreciate what you bring to the gaming community in a big way. and now that Im done kissin **** here LOL. anyway bro, BRAVO!!!
