Happy Street 

 

Happy Street is being promoted as Animal Crossing on the iPhone. Animal Crossing is a franchise that has done extremely well in the Family Friendly Gaming Nation. Happy Street is a free app so I was worried. I downloaded it and started to play it. My worries were right on target. Happy Street is nothing like Animal Crossing. It is false advertising. Which should come as no surprise since free apps are all kinds of false advertising.

Graphically Happy Street looks okay. Many of the graphics are re-used, and there are disgusting images. For example one of the missions in Happy Street is to have a bird poop on five of the characters on your street. The poop stays on the characters or on the ground for some time.

The game play in Happy Street is extremely simple. Build houses for the characters, build stores, and complete missions. One of the early missions sets the tone for this app - pay them $1.99. In fact Happy Street likes to ask for money for numerous things. The lamest part about Happy Street is it does not take long to unlock everything.

Happy Street contains gambling in the form of a slot machine, and fortune telling. Neither of which are helpful to families. In fact both have been known to destroy families. I am surprised Happy Street did not earn the twelve plus age rating from Apple.

The characters in Happy Street are animals. They have quests for the player like find another character on the street. Which takes about two seconds if you have to scroll the screen. Or they want to know where a certain shop is. Again it does not take very long. Players will also provide the players missions like pay the company who made this game some money. Or build a certain store/object. Most of this is pretty typical of the free app genre.

Happy Street is really small. I am baffled that anyone would even try to compare Happy Street to Animal Crossing. Animal Crossing is so much more than Happy Street on so many different levels. Characters in Happy Street can wear different hats, shirts, and glasses on their birthday. Aside from that there is not a lot of customization to do in Happy Street. Don’t waste your time on Happy Street.
