Platform Racing 2 - Happy Hour New
Happy Hour is a special mode in Platform Racing 2 where experience points are doubled, stats are boosted to 100 and the Jump Start Hat is winnable as a random prize for one hour.

Whenever a Happy Hour's occurring, matches will indicate it in large, flashing letters with 3 happy blocks on each side and Fred the Giant Cactus flipping on-screen.

History

Announcement

Platform Racing 2 - Happy Hour Old

Original intro screen.

Jiggmin announced the mode on 2012-05-02 partially to create a new method of obtaining the Jump Start Hat as it was previously given to every player who logged in to celebrate his Folding at Home group becoming a top 100 team.[1][2][3] Happy Hours only occurred randomly at this point and were only indicated at the start of a race.

Motley Monday Updates

Unlike Super Flying Cowboy Mode, Happy Hours remained essentially unchanged in terms of effects, although various small details were altered. In addition to randomly starting, members could spend 50 Kreds in the Vault of Magics to trigger one on the server they're logged into. Servers currently having a Happy Hour were also given a "!!" next to them on the login screen for users to easily find them and the intro font was, like Super Flying Cowboy Mode, changed from Stencil Std to Gwibble.

Trivia

  • A fan-made Happy Hour locator was created just a couple weeks before the official one, a coincidence Jiggmin noted in its announcement.
