From the moment you start up Hamtaro, happy colors and sounds are around you. Unfortunately this joy doesn't last long as Ham-Ham Bo drops off his rainbow and not only does he hurt his butt but also his colors disappear. With Hamtaro and his friends you'll have to go searching through the different levels for the seven colors of the rainbow.

AlphaDream, as you may have guessed from the review, is a very strong company that has managed to craft a technically impressive and surprisingly fun GBA game about hamsters. Now, you tell me how many other developers would even try something like that? With the game being on general release for a quite a while across Europe now, but only in limited numbers since the end of November in the UK due to a lack of interest here, this could be the last Hamtaro we see for quite a while. So snap it up whilst you can!

Nintendo excels at enticing people to explore strange new worlds. Hamtaro is no different as you burrow down into the secret land of the Ham-Hams (GB versions of hamsters)?and they?re soooo cuuuute! The ?adventure? takes Hamtaro on a ?quest? to find the other Ham-Hams. Along the way, you?ll learn to speak Ham-Chat (Ham-ha means ?hello?) and maybe dance a Ham-Jam. It?s harmless fun that?s oddly compelling. This game has "kids merchandising hit" written all over it because Hamtaro?s soooo cuuuute!

In October, Nintendo officially wrapped up publishing on the Game Boy Color with Hamtaro: Ham-Hams Unite for the system, a cute and well-designed adventure game based upon the downright adorable Hamtaro: Little Hamsters Big Adventures series running on the Cartoon Network. This first official Nintendo of America hamster game was a surprisingly good game on the system, even if it wasn't very masculine to admit liking it. The Hamtaro series makes its GBA debut with Hamtaro: Ham-Ham Heartbreak, an extension of the Game Boy Color game that's improved both in graphics and sound, and though the storyline and challenges are completely new, the design is virtually identical to the first game in the series. The decent GBC game design still fits the GBA market, and Hamtaro: Ham-Ham Heartbreak is still a surprisingly engrossing and fun little adventure.

Hamtaro: Rainbow Rescue is een goed geslaagd spel, dat uitermate geschikt is voor kinderen die de Engelse taal redelijk beheersen. De mini-games zijn leuk om te spelen en worden over het algemeen duidelijk uitgelegd. Het verzamelen van de diverse ingrediënten neemt een hoop tijd in beslag door de vele tegenslagen die de hamsters op hun pad vinden, je hebt het spel daardoor niet snel uitgespeeld. Je moet goed onthouden waar je een bepaalde puzzel nog niet op kon lossen omdat je nog niet genoeg hamsters had of niet de goede hamsters, dat kan soms verwarrend zijn. Er zijn heel veel stickers, matjes en kleurplaten om te verzamelen.

I've just embarked on a guilty pleasure. No, I didn't watch a pornographic video, nor did I partake in use of recreational drugs. I played a video game. No, it wasn't Grand Theft Auto: Vice City or Postal 2. I've just gotten back from playing Hamtaro: Ham Ham Heartbreak for the Gameboy Advance. Now, you're probably saying that Hamtaro is a TV show for little kids, and thus the game is too. HOW WRONG YOU ARE. While the game may very well be designed for the younger audience that watches the quirky TV show involving a group of hamsters, the game is complex enough to be entertaining even though it's disgustingly filled with over-the-top cuteness.

Netter Nachfolger ohne nennentwerte Überraschungen.

Les épisodes de Hamtaro s'enchaînent sur Gameboy sans réellement se ressembler, mais sans pour autant réussir à proposer suffisamment d'intérêt pour nous surprendre. Un titre au demeurant sympathique mais uniquement conseillé aux plus jeunes fans du dessin animé.
