General Information

HTF-FA Gameplay Footage

A screenshot of in-game footage.

"Single Player, HD (High Definition). Based on the popular and twisted Web series, Lumpy and his accident-prone friends are faced with one gory, horrible disaster after another!"

Happy Tree Friends: False Alarm is an action-adventure game utilizing a "physics-based reactive environment". It is similar in some regards to the game Lemmings. In the game, players control almost everybody. Stages include a mine shaft, candy factory, hospital, and a museum. Also, there is an exclusive episode in the game, however it was eventually aired on the HTF official website and is displayed on YouTube.

The game itself features a HUD with Lumpy in it, four ability icons (Fire: burning objects, scaring the Happy Tree Friends along; Nitro: destroying obstacles; Water: Freezing objects and Happy Tree Friends; and Action: allows interactivity with the environment), and an ability meter, which prevents over-use of any ability (on the top-left), there is also, on the top-right a fire alarm with a meter around it, which has a gold, silver, bronze, and 'fail' zone, which relates to the end reward upon completion (or, if appropriate, lack of completion) of a level. The Lemming-like Happy Tree Friends who are being rescued, have their own icons (up to five) at the top of the screen in the HUD, with a health bar to indicate their condition. If the icon is frozen, it means the character is currently frozen. If the character's portrait is black and has flames coming from it, that means that the character is currently on fire. If there is a large red X through the portrait, it means they are dead.

On the Xbox 360 there are 12 achievements and 200 Gamerscore available (see below) The game also sports a Leaderboard system for Xbox Live and the PC, the leaderboard is the records that have been achieved around the world, the filters for the leaderboards are: "Level", which will consist of all levels, and every individual level; "Period", which is either "All Time", "Monthly", or "Weekly"; and "Filter", which filters between everyone on the leaderboards (starting at #1), friends only, showing only you and your friends, and My Score, which shows your score in relation to other players. The Leaderboards allows scroll up and down commands, and a refresh command.

The scoring for the game is based on multiple factors (there may also be others):

  1. The speed at which you complete the level (as the bar slowly drains from gold to silver to bronze to fail)
  2. How many Happy Tree Friends get out alive (multiplying your score by the amount alive at the end)
    1. Happy Tree Friends reaching the end of the level fills up the bar slightly, to help reach the gold award, Happy Tree Friends dying drains the bar and lowers your reward, and can cause you to fail the level.
  3. An award multiplier which multiplies your score depends on how full the bar was at the end of the level (1X for Bronze, 2X for Silver, and 3X for Gold)
    1. Which maximizes the multiplier up to 15X

Note: Lumpy is not counted, seeing as he is controlled in every level, and due to him not being in the way of the hazards.

Tutorial Level

Characters

time runs out. The quicker you do this, the better the
award you will achieve!

Water
Use water to freeze the Happy Tree Friends, or hold

can also put out fires, freeze vents and other objects.


Nitro
This ability will unfreeze Happy Tree Friends. It is also
handy for destroying objects and items that you
come across throughout the levels.


Fire
The fire ability can be used to destroy objects within
the levels, but its main use is to speed up the Happy
Tree Friends.


Action
This is used to activate or interact with objects such
as switches, levers, pumps, and handles.


Onto the level: Flippy will move towards a large door that opens by switch, keep pressing the switch to open it, and let Flippy move through, next, detonate the rock in the way with the Nitro ability on a stick of dynamite, then get Flippy onto the platform and freeze him, when he gets on, the platform will move right, unfreeze him when it gets to the end, and move him off. Next is a pipe, first use the nitro ability on the iced part of the pipe, then use the action ability on the valve to fill the pool with water, so Flippy can swim through, and it doesn't have to be full when he gets in. Freeze the vent so flippy can get past it unharmed, then you will see two buttons to the left of another door, click the top one with the action button, then the one below to open it. After the door, there is a sludge on the floor, use nitro to destroy it to speed Flippy up, then pull the level above a platform to the right of the sludge, now the platform can be crossed, Flippy will now get onto a ramp, press the button nearby to flip him over the wall when he is near the end of it. Lastly, destroy the two wood barriers with nitro and let Flippy walk through, he will then stand on a platform activates a heavy-duty roller, so put fire behind Flippy to get him away from it and to the finishing zone.

Well done!
You have completed the tutorial level. Now let's try
this with some real hazards and add some more
Happy Tree Friends!

Candy Factory

The Candy Factory is the first zone in Happy Tree Friends: False Alarm. This zone being in a candy factory naturally involves candy-moulding machinery, such as presses and grinders, to cause potential harm to the Happy Tree Friends.

Better Choco-late Than Never

Characters
FlippyFlaky
The MoleRussell
Giggles
Hazards
Hydraulic Presses
Faulty Vents
Triplet of Revolving Platforms
Candy Grinders

Completing this level at all will guarantee one achievement to unlock if you're playing on the Xbox 360, which could be either "Sweet Smell of Copper", "Hi Ho Silver", or "You're Golden", depending on how well you complete the level.
As you start, right at the beginning are two hydraulic presses, wait for them to start going up, and when the Happy Tree Friends can fit through the gap, force them to run through (you may have to do each press individually), next is a pair of faulty vents that need to be blocked with the water action, however, they only stay blocked for a limited period of time, so keep freezing them. Then get the Happy Tree Friends on the lift and freeze them, activate the switch just above, and the lift will rise, up top is a triplet of flipping platforms, when you see the platforms flip, get the Happy Tree Friends across quickly before they flip again.
Now let the Happy Tree Friends slide down a collapsed floor and activate the switch at the bottom to lower a ramp, after they have made it up the ramp, turn a valve above a group of grinders to fill it with liquid candy, so they can swim through safely and rush them to the exit.

You're On A Roll

Characters
FlippyFlaky
The MoleRussell
Giggles
Hazards
Mechanical Wheel
Toxic Liquid
Industrial Roller
Faulty Automatic Door

Use the small, triangular ramp to send the characters jumping to a pool of chocolate. Once they've landed on the lower floor, you can see another ramp that sends the Happy Tree Friends to the next floor; use it after you destroy the gear that continuously move the large wheel with fire. Use the pump to decrease the pink fluid (which seems to be poison) down the drain.
After that, you must let the Happy Tree Friends avoid a large, mechanical roller with the combination of fire and water: fire lets them get further away of it, while water lets it push them forward to the door that vertically closes in repetition. Use the switch as soon as the characters get close with the vertical door lowered, as you lead them safely to the exit.

Gimme Some Sugar

Characters
FlippyThe Mole
RussellGiggles
Toothy
Hazards
Triplet of Revolving Platforms
Mechanical Stamps
Revolving Gears

You start with the revolving platforms by quickly escorting the Tree Friends with fire or block them with water for the right timing. Switch the automatic runner to forward as the characters get close, otherwise, it will send them backward to the ramp. Quickly lure them from the large mechanical stamps with fire to avoid them being crushed.
As they land on a bucket, use the switch to tilt it to drop them to another and last. Finally, summon the pump to lift the gears up for the Happy Tree Friends to exit without harm.

Hospital

The hospital is the second zone of Happy Tree Friends: False Alarm. Normally hospitals are buildings where people go to heal and prevent wounds. However, this being Happy Tree Friends most of the machinery have broken down and become death-traps.

Achievements

There are 12 Achievements for Happy Tree Friends: False Alarm on the Xbox 360, and this adds up to 200G (Gamerscore).

Image Name Description Gamerscore Walkthrough
HTF-FA Beginner's Luck Beginner's Luck Complete the tutorial. 5G This is the simplest achievement, all that needs to be done is to get through the tutorial, and seeing as the tutorial level pretty much lets you take as much time as you wish and it is almost impossible to kill Flippy, so it's nearly impossible to fail it, and it only takes a few minutes at most, so why not? You also get to learn the controls if you haven't already.
HTF-FA Just what the doctor ordered Just what the doctor ordered Finish a zone without harming any Happy Tree Friends. 10G
HTF-FA Sweet Smell of Copper Sweet Smell of Copper Achieve a Bronze Award. 10G Completing any level with at least a bronze medal is only difficult if you are a natural at the game, just playing through should yield you with a level that will, eventually, be a little too tricky to get a silver or gold medal on, so you'll get an achievement and a bronze instead. If you can't do this, you can always kill a Happy Tree Friend at the end, or freeze them all and wait until you're deep in the bronze zone of the meter, and let them into the finishing spot one at a time. I do not know if this achievement can be permanently missed, it's fair to assume no, but it's always a good idea to get it anyway if you're looking to complete the game.
HTF-FA The Midas Touch The Midas Touch Achieve a Gold Award on each level. 30G
HTF-FA Playing With Fire Playing With Fire Burn 200 characters to death. 5G Unless you're really REALLY bad at the game, there's no way you'll get it just playing through, the only thing you can do is grind this, put something on, like music, and get at it, that's all there is to it really.
HTF-FA Piece of Cake Piece of Cake Achieve at least a Bronze Award in 15 levels. 20G
HTF-FA You Da Bomb You Da Bomb Achieve a career score of at least 18,000,000. 25G
HTF-FA The Last Drop The Last Drop Finish a zone with all the characters under 25% health. 10G
HTF-FA That's a Wrap That's a Wrap Unlock the 2nd part of the movie. 25G
HTF-FA Give Yourself A Hand Give Yourself A Hand Score at least 500,000 in every level. 25G

Reception

The game received generally average to low reviews, getting a 6.2 on IGN, as well as a 4.5 on Gamespot. Both websites took particular offense at the game's Artificial intelligence. The game was also criticized for being short, only taking about 2 hours to complete. Despite this, the Happy Tree Friends episode available upon completion of the game was highly praised.

Trivia

  • The game itself only consists of a cfg (configuration), 2 exe, and a Half-Life Texture Package files. This suggests that the game uses Half-Life's GoldSrc engine.
  • The character animation file reveals unused animations, such as the character being killed by being impaled with a spike, and by being inflated until popped.
  • The objects used in-game are mdl files, which are commonly used in games running with the GoldsSrc engine and Source Physics Engine. The files can be extracted, but can only be opened with the Jet's Half-Life Model Viewer (GoldSrc engine models) or Source SDK (Source engine models).
  • Handy, Cuddles, and Disco Bear appear on the cover of the game, yet none of them are playable (though Cuddles appears in the episode).
  • Flippy is featured in the game, but he doesn't flip out.
  • On a screenshot of the game's beta version, the game was supposed to have 3 characters (Lumpy, Handy, Flippy) in HUD (possibly rotating between turns) instead of only Lumpy. In the real game, Flippy is one of the tree friends to be rescued, while the character Handy seems to be removed. Also, the abilities set were different from the real game.
  • False Alarm was originally another Flash game about rescuing the tree friends from fire using the help of Lumpy's match and The Mole's extinguisher.
  • The game was also supposed to come out for PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Wii, but was cancelled for both systems.
  • During gameplay, Flippy's voice sounds similar to Cuddles'. This could mean that Cuddles was originally intended to be in this game.  
  • There are soundtracks in the game that are also in Wishy Washy, Chew Said a Mouthful and Easy For You to Sleigh.
