Happy Tree Friends Adventures is the very first game from the eponymous series created by Radel999 (or HTFMegaman). The playable characters in the game are from MondoMedia's Happy Tree Friends, while the enemies are from Super Mario Bros., Contra, and Wai Wai World.

StoryEdit

The titular tree friends are on their journey to rescue Giggles the chipmunk from Bowser.

GameplayEdit

The game itself is a basic 2D side-scrolling platform game, with HTF characters as the heroes, which includes Cuddles, Flaky, Petunia, and Nutty. Each character has their own ability, like Cuddles being the fastest shooter, Flaky being able to jump the highest, Petunia moving fast, and Nutty being slow and a low jumper. Before entering a level, the player will be given a chance to select a character for that level. The heroes start with 3 lives and 3 health points (hearts). Getting in contact with enemies and hazards will make them lose a health point. Losing all health points or falling into deep pits will make them lose a life. Lose all lives and the game is over.

The objective of the game is to go through levels and areas, defeating bosses (Bowser and his minions), and rescue Giggles from the hands of Bowser. Players will find and pick up crystals for points, hearts for recovery, and special flashing hearts for extra life. The tree friends can also shoot orbs to defeat enemies.

GlitchesEdit

Collision glitchesEdit

As collision detection is poor in this game, it is possible to quickly lose health by standing over the same enemy or hazard and lose all momentum if the player collides with solid objects mid-jump or mid-fall, the latter of which causes the player to fall straight down with no way to steer their character.

Draw distance quirksEdit

The way objects behave beyond the game's draw distance can result in various quirks. Bowser will not spit fire until most of his sprite is on-screen and orbs fired by tree friends will instantly disappear the moment they leave the screen. In case of Bowser, in a similar way to the multi-orb glitch, making his sprite fully shown on-screen may cause him to spit multiple fireballs in a spread shot before resuming his normal programming.

Objects over HUDEdit

Certain non-background objects such as player characters are placed in a layer in front of the HUD's, so these tend to overlap the HUD whenever they pass it, easily shown whenever a tree friend dies from falling into a bottomless pit or when the player manages to fall right between the goal gates in World 4-2.

Wild orb directionsEdit

Due to the way the shooting mechanics were designed, orbs fired by the tree friends do not always follow the direction they are facing, easily changed by having them jump or fall. Sometimes, it is possible to shoot diagonally or briefly fire multiple orbs at the beginning of a level until the player moves from their starting spot.
