I used to play this on the Xbox360, so you can't tell me that i cant judge due to 0.4 hours. The optimization for this game is so horrible on the pc that it renders the game near unplayable for me. I have an alienware computer that can run most high-end games on high settings. I definitely do NOT recommend playing this on pc... If you have a 360 with live, then by all means play. even though microtransaction plague it, it can still be fun!

Game can still be fun when you can find the right people. Honestly had a few good days enjoying myself.

However when 1 fully geared Warrior joins either side its no longer any fun and having to grind though the pain of basicly being able to do nothing to stop them just ruins the entire game experience. This happened to me game after game after game for 2 days now.

Add in the micro transactions, which basicly inflate the issue above and the fact it can take 10 mins + for a single game to start and the fact the game crashes when you get to many people in them (I know wierd huh) well you get a recipe of just not wanting to play anymore.

Back in the day, 2012, I got my xbox. My cousin who was a big gamer told me about a game called Happy Wars. I loved the game and I played it. I remember all the nostalgia from playing it and a ton of other xbox games like Castle Miner Z, Block Buster Theater, Catle Crashers, It was lit. A while ago Implayed this on pc, but my pc couldn't run it. It is now October 2016 and I forgot the name. I just downloaded it and I am so happy and I miss xbox 360. I had a lot of friends and it was fun. Wish I could go back to that.

Good game!

I've played Happy Wars for two years on Xbox Live, and now it has arrived on Steam.

The game is simple.
Endless matches. A war between two castles. Three classes (Warrior, Cleric and Mage). Leveling up characters and equipments. Building respawn towers. Having fun.
The graphics are kind of childish and the game is light, and that's good. It's a game for all ages.

There isn't much to tell about the game. It's as simple as it looks like, and it's incredibly enjoyable.

The main mode is the multiplayer mode. There is PvP for at least 6 players (up to 30), and there is the Co-Op mode (playing against bots) for at least 8 players.

There is also the single-player mode, with story mode, tutorials and the skirmish mode (the same as multiplayer, but only with bots).

The game is the same, but a PC port brings new possibilities.

Besides being able to play it using keyboard+mouse and also using a gamepad, adding players is way faster than on Xbox, and having a faster text chat helps a lot.

This game is not a pay-to-win. You're not forced to play against high-leveled people, and they won't charge you for accessing any part of the game. But of course there is some cool stuff you can get by using real money, such as better chances of getting good equipments, using it to improve equipments instead of using game money, unlocking the evolved classes faster and buying items.

That's one of my favorite free-to-play games, I'd recommend this to anyone who likes RPG, war games, magic games or even MOBA.

Play it! It's free! Have nice fun!

As much as I want to love this game(believe me, I do), I really can't recommend this game to anyone because of the atrocious matchmaking and rather repetetive gameplay/modes. It is a mediocre port locked at 30fps. There is no communication in lobbies or in matches, except for the small commands in matches, which do not really matter at all because they are constantly spammed, making them serve barely any purpose at all.

The visual style is both charming and gorgeous, and the gameplay is fun and addicting, but it is all the other negative factors that pulls my verdict for the game down.

There are no official servers or support for community servers, the game is 100% peer to peer. You are often tossed in matches with people from the other side of the globe, then kicked out in the middle of the match because either A. The match was ended because there are too few players to actually countinue(everyone else has been disconnected), or B. You have lost connection to the other peers.

EDIT: A small point that I left out was the microtransactions present in Happy Wars. Certain items are pay2win only, but most of the items are available through luck and grinding, as expected for a f2p title. The happy tickets (Happy War's premium currency) can be used to get easier access to equipment or to make progress on certain quest. For some, premium players might seem overpowered for some, but it all depends on how well you play, not just you, but you and your team.

EDIT: In Happy Wars, each basic class possesses one archtype (advanced class), which are unlocked through the various quests in the game. The quests consist of for the most part of "doing this" or "kill x amount of that", again, more grinding. As I mentioned earlier, Happy Tickets can be used to make progress on certain quests, giving premium players easier access to the archtypes.

The community is also rather dull and the developers are barely communicating/and or listening to the players. I expressed my thoughts on the lack of servers a while back and ended up getting my comment removed.

+Gorgeous visual style
+Good soundtrack
+Addictive and fun gameplay

-Horrible matchmaking
-Locked framerate(locked at 30)
-Lack of communication both in matches and in lobbies
-The game gets somewhat repetetive after X amount of hours
-No sign of the developers actually communicating with the players
-Somewhat p2w


EDIT: For those who are rating this review down, please leave a comment and tell me why, I want to hear your opinions. General feedback is also much appreciated.

+ Lots of fun with friends
+ Easy to play and relatively easy to get into
+ Cute and charming design
+ Pretty cool drops when you start out
+ Most people I've played with are supportive and play as a team

- LAG. Doesn't matter how good your net is you will lag and your hits won't register
- Loading time takes forever
- Unrealiable servers. You will disconnected for no reason
- In my experience finding matches takes a while. Either there isn't enough people to start a match (so you have to reset every 30 seconds to see if anyone else wants to come in OR they get disconnected)
- Usually unbalanced ( For example, my last match: 8 people in game. 3 1 stars on my team, 4 people with over 1000 hours on the other = we lost instantly). So don't get mad if your team loses a few dozen times xD

The PC version isn't even up to date with the console version. The console version has a lot more features and stuff. This game doesn't even get updates. The "updates" are only special deals so you'll buy more of their stupid card packs for your characters.

The game is also Pay 2 Win.

I don't normally review games on Steam, but the game is fun. I just really want an update with more graphical options. Just because the creator can run it without lag, doesn't mean it's lag free for everyone else. It's not even THAT hard to make the options. I can sort of play the game.... (Runs at 15 FPS, which is very slow, but I'm used to it, but I'd honestly rather it be over 30!) Just please add more graphical options, such as shadows, AA, and maybe even render distance.

For those that can run this game, it's very fun! I do recommend it, as long as you can run it! Seeing as it's free, at least you can test it!

It's an appealing concept with quirky visuals and gameplay--unfortunately, it's effectively ruined with terrible balancing and pay-to-win options.

I hear it was great fun on the Xbox 360 but speaking solely from a PC perspective, it's not really worth picking up or investing in.
