- This is the first game in the Hamsterz series. For other games in the series see the Hamsterz category.
Hamsterz is a hamster simulation video game released by Ubisoft for the Nintendo DS as a part of the Petz series. Hamsterz is also known as Hamsterz Life, Love ♥ Hamster, or Love Love Hamster in Japan. Being released after Petz 5, it is part of the second Petz series.
Hamsterz Life lets you raise several breeds of hamsters and build fully customizable homes for them to live in. You need to look after your hamster so it can turn the cage into a hamster city. Just as in the other Petz games, players can interact with their hamsters by training, playing with, and feeding them. Unlike the more modern version, Hamsterz 2, your hamsters will not suffer from illnesses or have pups, but you can win prizes in minigames and let your hamster wonder around your bedroom (under your supervision, of course).
You can also use DS Download Play and you and your friend can meet each other in a room. You can give each other presents as well and stroke their hamsters.
