If you’ve every played through a blast barrel level in a Donkey Kong Country game and thought “Man, I wish there were more of these,” Bullet Boy is more of those. »
Happy Wheels has been on the internet for a long time. You’ve probably played it, or watched a YouTuber play it, or at least heard of this gruesome ragdoll physics game. Well, now it’s on iOS—and I dove in to see whether or not it still holds up.
Walls have always been an important part of Pac-Man. Your little yellow guy (or lady) is stuck in a maze with some deadly ghosts. The walls of the maze frame the action and give it structure. So… what if one of those walls didn’t exist, and the maze became endless?
