"It's like Lemmings, but with one hamster... on dope!"

TouchArcade forums user comments on Crazy Hamster:
"Very fun game..."
"Great game..."
"Pretty cool game..."

Winter is coming and Crazy Hamster forgot to store his supplies! His only hope now is to visit different lands and collect foodstuffs before it's too late. Unfortunately, Crazy Hamster is so crazy that his one-track mind sees nothing but the goodies, despite the fact that the lands he must visit are teeming with traps and obstacles!

It's up to you to keep Crazy Hamster out of harm's way by building bridges, extinguishing fires and using ladders. Succeed and he'll get through winter with plenty of food in his belly fail, and we might be witnessing the debut of "Hamsters on Ice".

Whoa, there he goes -- Crazy Hamster is off and running! Quick, after him! There's no time to lose!

- Simple, but addictive game play
- Funny and cute animations and sound effects

Video and Free version are coming this month

The official video is coming. We were just not expecting that the game would be approved so fast

Seems like Apple hired some more people to the App Store submission team before Christmas season.

This looks great! (From what I can tell from the screenshots). Can't wait to see a gameplay video .

Ok so couldn't resist - I can overlook what is I am sure the poor translation typo of "enterance" though I know for some people that would be the total end of the world.

The gameplay is much like Toki Tori but Mr Hamster is in constant motion so you must build, put out hazards, cross water, etc all on the run. Fun, good concept.

What I AM having trouble with however is the NO IN GAME SAVE! I made it through quite a few levels (9 maybe?) and lost all my hamster lives. Ok thought I would pick up where I left off since it WAS becoming quite frenetic at that point. But NO, I had to start at the first level all over again!

And if all the worlds only have 3 levels - right now there are only 12 levels. I see they have updates planned with more levels and worlds, but my philosophy is to buy a game on what it is NOW, not what the future may or may not hold (then you won't be disappointed). So I am not sure if I like it yet. I might just be sour I lost my lives.

I went ahead and bought this too and the gameplay is very similar to little runner. So the best part about the game is definetly the graphics. It has a very cute and amusing cartoon feel to it. On the downside, once you complete a level, I think you should be able to have that level unlocked. So when you lose, you should be able to start from the last level you completed and your score should just reset. Other than that, so far it a pretty good game for 99 cents.

Totally agree with the unlocked levels though now that I have softened a bit (time heals all wounds - I was so close!) I think that since its short right now it might be a better challenge to go through it all at once. But depending on the updates etc, the unlocking levels would be a definite feature to have! Graphics are great, the freneticism actually adds to the game and its very fun. A tutorial (unless I missed it) would be handy to let you know what each item can be used for - I died hitting a tree stump cuz I didn't know I was supposed to trampoline it! So without an explanation of items and therefore the learning curve that is needed to get through the items, you shouldn't be penalized by starting over!

I know, totally contradicting myself here, just lots of thoughts and ideas of the many directions this game has the potential to go. Would be nice to see if the dev is a member here!

Edit: didn't realize the dev IS here! duhhhhhh
