mission? To help Hamtaro find all the Ham-Hams and bring them back
to the Clubhouse for Boss. In order to find them, Boss has told
Hamtaro to use Ham-Chat, a secret Ham-Ham language, to help him
round up the Ham-Hams.
Based on the popular new cartoon,
this much-anticipated game starring those adorable hamsters takes
kids on a fun and pleasantly challenging adventure in Hamtaro's
town! Although they play as Hamtaro, kids can choose any name for
their character. Hamtaro begins his quest with access only to the
Clubhouse and Acorn Shrine. As he learns more Ham-Chat words and
finds Ham-Hams, more areas open up. Kids can always return to the
Clubhouse for updates, hints, and progress reports from Boss and
Learning the secret language,
Ham-Chat, is vital to kids' progress. They must collect Ham-Chat
words by speaking to all the hamsters they run into. New words
learned appear in the Ham-Ham Notebook. Players use the words to
greet hamsters, sniff things, dig things up, to apologize, climb
up trees and ladders, roll into objects
for surprises, and so forth. They use words to coax Ham-Hams to go back to the
Clubhouse and to learn more words!
Kids visit the Ham-Hams they have
found in their individual rooms back at the Clubhouse. They can
also go to the Dance Room and create some Ham-Jams! Each Ham-Chat
word has an action that goes with it, and these actions can be
used to make a dance routine. Dances can be traded with other
owners of the game using a Link Cable. Players can
purchase new outfits for Hamtaro at the boutiques scattered around
the town, and then try them on and take photos. Kids thoroughly
enjoyed adding cute accessories to Hamtaro, such as swords,
aprons, and adorable bunny ears.
