Happy Reaper is Blizzard's April Fools' Day spin on Flappy Bird
Continuing with their April Fools' Day celebration, Blizzard has revealed their latest joke of a game, Happy Reaper, a Flappy Bird spin-off.
"In Happy Reaper, players take on the role of Malthael, the Angel of Death, who's recently returned to Sanctuary with a vengeance. With a series of well-timed mouse clicks or finger taps, skillfully guide Malthael through a network of ancient Pandemonium ruins to collect human souls and obliterate all puny nephalem with your trusty Death Laser of Doom™."
"Easy, right? WRONG. Happy Reaper is probably the most challenging Blizzard game you've ever played. It's incredibly difficult to learn and almost impossible to master!"
Similar to Flappy Bird, I find myself sucking at Happy Reaper. Even more entertaining than the game though, is Blizzard's noteworthy "feature highlights," which clearly pokes fun at how developers/publishers overembellish about their game.
- Robust, interactive storytelling allows every choice to matter in Happy Reaper. Will Malthael ascend to victory or fall into oblivion? Only you decide!
- New Tapright™ technology captures your clicks and taps better than ever, offering unparalleled responsiveness and absolutely no scapegoat for your imminent failure.
- Experience the WHOOSH of every ghostly wing flap and the POW of every laser beam blast with our proprietary Dia-Bling™ FX engine.
- All-new, fully loaded soundscape designed to stimulate your senses and help you reduce stress, improve sleep, and lose weight*.
- Larger-than-life in-game collision system provides exceptional (and increasingly difficult) levels of challenge.
Bursting with rich gameplay depth, hidden difficulty modes, and the most spectacular end-game content known to man**, Happy Reaper offers limitless hours of
frustrationenjoyment for any aspiring harbinger of death.
Blizzard says Happy Reaper will be available on browsers and mobile devices. It is currently available to play on PC via your browser, but who knows if it's actually coming to mobile devices; I don't know what's real anymore.
