  • Summary: [Playstation Network] What is Hamsterball? Well, imagine if both Marble Madness and Super Monkey Ball were to meet a cute and unsuspecting hamster who’s out for a leisurely roll in his ball. This is the most frenzied race to the finish line he’ll ever run. [TikGames]

    If you miss the good ol' times of Marble Madness and Monkey Ball, look no further. HamsterBall is an enjoyable game with dozens of excellent tracks and different game modes. It's fun and engaging but not flawless: visual style can be awkward at times and physics doesn't really always work like it should. However, for such a low price those are just minor flaws. And let's face it, hamsters are cute.

    It's a little pricey, but fans of Monkey Ball will be more than happy with this digital substitute. [Issue#194, p.103]
  3. With its unwisely generic title, Hamsterball doesn't inspire confidence that it's going to do anything more than roll over old ground, and so it proves.
  4. There's plenty to nibble at, and for a cent under ten dollars (European pricing and release date still to be confirmed) it's well worth a punt.

    A marble maze game like this is based on two things: good physics and good track design. HamsterBall has mediocre both.

It is quite entertaining in terms of gameplay and the levels are varied enough. It is not too long, but getting the 100% of trophies and levels in general pose a good challenge that prolongs the length of the game. Expand

    Amazing gameplay, mediocre controls, very fun, can be repetitive, but a great time!
