Wipeout: now with graphic violence

If you’ve always wanted to try your hand at Wipeout’s elimination course, and/or you’ve always wanted there to be more entrails left behind after someone wipes out, here’s a game for you: Happy Wheels.

The game is old but the course, modeled after the ABC reality series, is new. After selecting a character—options include someone in a grocery store motorized cart, a guy on a Segway, Santa, and a man and a kid on a bike—you navigate the obstacles, including the big balls. Instead of mud and water, though, there are spikes. And any error, such as getting punched by the punching wall, will result in injury to your character. Graphic, violent, bloody, gross, hilarious injury.

The Verge notes that this “game has been around for a while, but it’s certainly evolved” because there’s “a vibrant map-making community,” which produced the Wipeout course (it’s by FireNine09).

Play Happy Wheels: Wipeout edition here. You can also watch replays of other people’s successful—or not so successful—attempts to navigate the course, most of which include graphic violence.
