Product Description

Hamster Habitat is an engaging path-building puzzle game.

Can you bring all your hamsters together?

In Hamster Habitat, your goal is to connect all of the pieces in the hamster cage using a limited supply of hamster tubes. You'll need to work around obstacles and plan carefully to solve puzzles of three different difficulty levels. For bonus points, find the path that not only unites the hamsters but rewards them with up to three treats!

Hamster Habitat gives you more than 50 puzzles to solve in any order, and includes a full tutorial, an infinite undo feature to make it easy to change your mind, and a Show Solution feature for those puzzles you just can't figure out. Hamster Habitat is fun for puzzle lovers of all ages.

4.0 out of 5 stars Twist on Pipes January 17, 2012
This is a lot like the classic "Pipes" game where you try to build a pipe network connecting the water supply with the drain...

...With a twist. In Hamster Habitat there is no time limit as there is in pipes. You have all the time you need to unravel the puzzle. Instead you are connecting little hamster houses while trying to run your hamster tubes over treats for the hamsters. The more treats you can get the better your score will be.

While you are playing you must keep track of how many habitat pieces you have left. At the begining of a level you might have say, 3 horizontal pieces, 3 vertical pieces and several corner pieces from which you must build your habitat. keeping track of these can sometimes be a headache.

There are plenty of levels to keep you busy and more than a few that will stump all puzzlers. Levels are layed out in a menu like Grid Detective with Easy, Medium and Hard catagories.

I rated this 4 stars because it seemed geared toward younger children (at least the easier levels or unless you LOVE hamsters... :) But then again, who can go wrong for free???

5.0 out of 5 stars A well designed, fun game for the Kindle January 23, 2012
Verified Purchase
Having raised hamsters as a kid, I couldn't resist trying "Hamster Habitat." It's very similar to the iOS game of Aqueduct, except instead of water flowing through pipes, it's hamsters running around between their cages and collecting snacks. I played Hamster Habitat on my Kindle 3 (now called the Kindle Keyboard) - I can't vouch for how well it will run on the newer touchscreen Kindles, although Amazon shows that it will run okay.

The concept of Hamster Habitat is pretty simple: Using a limited supply of straight and curved tubing, connect the hamster cages to create a habitat. To keep your hamsters well fed and happy, make sure you collect the hamster treats scattered around the playing area.

The game includes a very good tutorial, and when you're ready to play, there are nine sample habitat puzzles to practice with before moving on to the main game, which includes three difficulty levels, each with nineteen screens to solve. The puzzles will give just about anyone a nice challenge, even at the easy level.

Game play itself is simple after you've practiced on a few introductory sample screens. There are some nice touches like an Undo key, and if you really get frustrated, you can restart the screen. And--bless the developers--you can view the solution to each puzzle.

Overall, Hamster Habitat is a fine example of what can be done with an e-ink Kindle as a game platform.

2.0 out of 5 stars Will make your Kindle SLOOOOW... February 4, 2012
Verified Purchase
I'm glad this game was free and I tried it out, BUT, deleted it due to the difficulty in getting the tubes to move around and placed and, not only this, but it made my Kindle operate very slow. Took up a lot of memory obviously. I deleted it and now my Kindle operates much better. This game was free, but even with that said, it wasn't worth the disruption of my other items.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun for people who enjoy puzzles July 1, 2012
Verified Purchase
This game has 57 puzzles with increasing levels of difficulty. There are 19 easy, 19 medium, and 19 hard puzzles. The object of the game is to work around obstacles and create a home for the hamsters that contains treats. This is done by connecting straight and curved tubes. The game has a detailed tutorial with nine sample games that teach people how to play. The games show solutions, there is no time limit, it is easy to change one's mind by pressing a key, and one can leave the puzzles at any time.

2.0 out of 5 stars Frustrating January 21, 2012
By Renee B
Verified Purchase
Maybe this could be fun IF it wasn't so hard to place the tubes. I swipe and flick over and over before the pipe ever goes where I want. If you could just choose which pipe you wanted to use, the game would be good. Glad it was free but I doubt I will play it much.

do not believe what the image says - this is not for KINDLE DEVICES - the new kindles do not accept active content like this game- so if you enjoy these types of active content do NOT BUY A NEW KINDLE - this game/puzzle will not work on it - the game is great but the NEW KINDLES SUCK!

3.0 out of 5 stars A Passable Puzzle Game March 10, 2015
By Brook
Verified Purchase
This game is passable, not great. With so few games available for the Kindle Paperwhite it is worth a download. (Hey developers, want to own a niche market, make a great black & white game for e-readers like Kindle readers.) I've played it a few times and it works well and is reasonable fun. But, after that experimentation, if I want to game, I'll turn to my smart phone.
