  • Summary: [Xbox Live Arcade] Disaster has struck the Happy Tree Friends! Earthquakes, fires, and other catastrophes have trapped the beloved friends who now must be rescued. In a unique twist to the action genre, guide the rescue squad of Flippy, Handy, and Lumpy into dangerous situations using unique abilities in a dynamic reactive environment to save as many trapped Happy Tree Friends as possible. Cute, cuddly, and horribly wrong, Happy Tree Friends False Alarm is filled with unexpected situations and outrageous outcomes. For the first time in 3D, play as the rescue squad of Flippy, Handy, and Lumpy to save other Happy Tree Friends such as Cuddles, Toothy and Flaky from life-threatening disasters. Using physics-based reactive environments and problem-solving elements control a rescue squad with unique abilities such as hurling concrete, spraying water, or throwing nitroglycerin to augment the dynamic 3D environments creating a variety of unpredictable outcomes. SEGA and the creative minds behind Happy Tree Friends have teamed up to create 10 original and engaging disaster scenarios such as the Mine Shaft, Candy Factory, and Museum. Xbox Live Arcade features leaderboards to compete with friends, earn achievement medals, and track your progress as you advance through Career mode. [Sega] Expand

  1. The flaws hold the game back from being as entertaining as it could have been, yet its over-the-top take on a classic formula is worth more than a few laughs to fans.
  2. 62
    Happy Tree Friends is a decent game that will please fans, but will end up boring most gamers. The difficultly never really ramps up from level 1 to level 30 and the levels are so short, you'll be done before dinner's ready.
  3. The initial reaction when Happy Tree Friends was fired up was "rubbish", "stupid" and "why are you playing this?" It looks bland, boring and slow...Yet for the person playing it, it's endearing, addictive and surprisingly fun.
  4. Whereas the Flash series is known for its over the top gore and unbelievable injuries caused by and to the cutesy animals, False Alarm will be known for its poor controls and short length.
  5. Happy Tree Friends False Alarm is clunky, unimaginative, and more like a false start than a fun game.
  6. After several stages, it becomes painfully repetitive. [Oct 2008, p.85]
