ROBIN: After many years abroad, Ninja Hamster returns to his homeland to find it overrun by evil creatures. Your mission as the Ramboesque rodent is to defeat them all in turn.

Graphically Ninja Hamster is very detailed, though some of the detail is lost when the fighting begins. And it's easy to get into, despite problems with the keyboard - there are so many keys needed.

I feel Ninja Hamster was sightly underrated in the CRASH review; it makes a good beat-'em-up, though it doesn't leave any lasting impression

RICKY: And you thought hamsters were cute? Dig this baby for one hell of a fighting rodent, saving a village from Sinister Rat, Loony Lobster and a host of other monsters. The humour adds to this traditional beat-'em-up's appeal, but doesn't disguise a very average combat game.
