Cutesy Physics Platforming With HamStar

HamStar is a very cute looking game indeed. While no one could deny that there are plenty of different physics based puzzle games on the App Store, one that has been so lovingly developed as this, is worth taking a look at.

From a team of merely two developers, HamStar is all about the plight of young Elmo the hamster. He's stuck you see and all on his own. He needs help in working his way through the 60+ levels on offer. As one would expect from a hamster, he's stuck in his own hamster ball and needs to be swiped in the right direction to navigate the levels and pop the star balloons as he goes along. It's not as easy as that of course though with red balloons, hamster wheels and falling toys all getting in the way. At times it might be a little frustrating but the general cutesy experience is bound to win people over.

Perhaps best of all is that HamStar is free to try with in-app purchases available for those who want to put some money down towards the experience. For $1.99 everything can be unlocked with lesser purchases also available such as to remove the adverts within the game.

HamStar is out now. Get to saving little Elmo!
