Happyland Adventures is a classic freeware platformer that is quite typical in plot (or lack of one) and gameplay, but has the same qualities that made Super Mario Bros. enduring: charming graphics and a well-balanced gameplay that strikes just the right difficulty level.
Platform fans will be more than familiar with the gameplay: collect various fruits for bonus, dispatch of enemies, and reach the exit to the next level. The not-so-important plot: save the Happylanders from evil. Short and sweet, eh? ;) Action game experts may find the game too easy and too short, but others will likely find it a fun and pleasant diversion that stands up to the best of shareware platformers, although maybe lacking in production value to compete with commercial titles. As a nice bonus, the download includes a level editor you can use to create your own levels, and you can download extra ones from the game's website. Thumbs up for this charming freeware underdog.Reviewed by: Underdogs
