The gameplay of House of Hazards
Do you know that there are many hidden hazards in your house? Play this game now to see what these hazards are and have fun. In this game, you will be assigned multiple tasks. You and the other players have to compete to complete them.
The list of the tasks
Here is the list of missions that you need to finish.
- Drink Coffee: First, in the morning, after waking up, you need a cup of coffee to boost your morning energy. Therefore, you have to rush to the kitchen to make coffee.

After all the players get hit by obstacles in the house, the scoreboard will appear. When looking at this scoreboard, you can know the completion rate of all players. If your completion rate is high, it means that you are about to finish the task.
All punishing choices in the game
Right after the scoreboard disappears, a lucky wheel will be displayed. It has four wedges labeled with the names of 4 players. Note that the higher your completion rate is, the bigger your wedge is on the lucky wheel. This wheel spins automatically. It will decide who will be punished in the next round. Next, another lucky wheel appears. This wheel has 6 wedges labeled with 6 punishing choices. You must spin it to choose one of the punishing choices.
- Safe Zone: If a flapper on the lucky wheel points to the Safe Zone wedge, it means that you are very lucky because there is nothing happening to you in the next round.
- Redo Last Task: This choice requires you to redo the mission that you have just completed
- Heavy Weight: If you spin the wheel and land on the Heavy Weight wedge, you need to wear heavy armor in the next round. This armor will slow down your running speed.
- Friendly Friend: If you hit the Friendly Friend wedge on the lucky wheel, you have to leave a nice flower instead of picking up players.
- Nonstop Dab: The frequency of the dangers will increase if you select this option.
- Inverted Control: Your control will be inverted. Press the left arrow key to run to the right and the right arrow key to run to the left.

All dangers in House of Hazards
In this game, you have to encounter multiple hazards which stop you from completing assigned tasks. What are they? Here is the list of dangers you need to watch out for. Besides, I will also suggest some tips to avoid them.
In the house
- The ceiling light: The ceiling light can drop into your head and make you faint at any time, so be careful.
- The cupboard: The door of the cupboard can suddenly open, so you need to crawl to avoid crashing into the door.

- The toaster oven: Some bread will jump out from the toaster oven and hit you.
- The robot vacuum: It will be turned on and move to the left or right to make you fall. You must jump as high as possible to avoid the robot vacuum.

In the garden
- The teddy bear: The teddy bear will jump and hit you to make you fall. It even chases you. Therefore, run as fast as possible to escape from this teddy bear.
- The tussock: Water will shoot out from the tussock, so you need to be careful when going through the tussock.

In the garage
- The pitching machine: The pitching machine will randomly shoot baseballs at you.
