Hamsterdam will be at Play NYC

We are coming close to New York’s Video Game Convention Play NYC and I am happy to say that the developer’s MUSE GAMES showcasing Hamsterdam. This is taking a new take on the classic beat’em up genre, but let’s take a closer look.

“A peaceful town suddenly overrun by criminal activity, a kidnapped loved one, an unlikely hero, and a big bad villain lurking in the shadows, looking to establish control over the unsuspecting citizens. It’s got all the standard earmarks of a beat ‘em up game, but it’s anything but standard. It’s time to rattle some cages.”

I have to admit that the storyline itself made me giggle in a great way because this is what impresses me about video games these days. They made a hamster into a street fighting vigilante of justice which if you were raised in the 80’s and 90’s it is not that weird of a concept. Let’s check out some of the features.

EPIC HAMSTER COMBAT:

  • Combat is a mix of reactive, precisely timed attacks and good old-fashioned button mashing. Fight by carefully timing taps and swipes to charge up powerful knockout strikes, perform devastating combos, and counter enemy attacks. Defending against enemies relies on quick thinking and even quicker reaction with puzzle and rhythm game element incorporated directly into the combat

SINISTER PLOT:

  • The once peaceful town is in danger! The vile chinchilla Marlo and his Rodent Gang are wreaking havoc and terrorizing the local citizens. Brace yourself for the heart-pounding action of expert hamster martial arts as you kick tail through district after district on your journey towards Marlo’s headquarters.

CRITTER CAST:

  • From Grandpa’s inexplicable knowledge of martial arts to Marlo’s criminal behavior, Hamsterdam is full of disarmingly cute characters that, at a glance, appear unlikely to be the heroes and villains that they are. Pimm may not be your typical muscle-bound hero, but remember that looks can be deceiving.

DRESS FOR BATTLE:

  • Equip Pimm with the latest gear as you make your way through the perilous streets. Earn and spend your coins on new outfits and accessories that will grant Pimm new powers and abilities. Discover what items work best for you!

I am glad this is coming out for the Android and iOS mobile devices because you will definitely have some fun on the go with this game. Full on customization of your hamster warrior, but they need to give him a MoHawk for real to kick his fury aura up a notch. I can’t wait to head to Play NYC this weekend and check out their booth and I hope you gamers visit as well, please click this link here to get your tickets right now. – Beast Out
