The early levels make a great introduction on how to play this game. The hamsters have numbers on their chest. Place them in the correct positions so that the math equations are correct. Tap on boxes if a hamster is resting on one, and they’ll drop down.
It looks really simple, but more obstacles show up in later levels. For example, there may be ropes in which they’ll be hanging on. This might remind of another game called Cut the Rope. Other things show up like chains, cutters, revolving platforms, and steel beams.
Solving the math equation and passing the obstacles are enough to pass the levels, but each level also has up to three stars for you to collect. You’ll want to collect all three stars so you can unlock the bonus levels.
Save the Hamsters cost $1.49 at the Windows Phone Store. There is a free trial available if you want to test it out before spending your hard-earned money. We think the full version is worth the purchase. The graphics look great and we’re actually having a lot of fun solving these math problems and obstacles.
