Today brings us another free game whose title gives you a pretty good idea what you’re in for. In Happy Street, you’re in charge of building up and maintaining a street where everyone seems to be pretty consistently happy. If I lived on a street where someone else was building me a home and expanding and improving it, and making sure I lived near amenities like cheese shoppes, eyeglasses stands, and the local casino, I’d probably stay in a good mood, too.
Happy Street plays like a cross between Ravenskye City and Tiny Tower (if someone knocked over the tower so it played horizontally), giving you a handful of adorable animal friends who chirp and peep at you with various quests — such as collecting apples, restocking the bazaar, and accumulating bird poop. That last one is somewhat indicative of the game’s offbeat humor, which works surprisingly well for the world it inhabits and gives the game the personality it needs to set itself apart from the other social village-making titles out there.
If you decide to play today, too, the AppGratis special will score you a bushel of in-game premium currency, which is another thing to be happy about.
