Product Description

Amazon.ca Product Description

When a mean-spirited hamster named Spat starts squabbles among the rest of the hamsters, Hamtaro and Bijou set out to get friends to make up. As they mend fences, they get help from Harmony, an angelic hamster with a heart of gold. Along the way, they have to learn the secret hamster language known as Ham-Chat in order to solve problems and move on.

From Amazon.ca

Hamtaro and friends are back in an even cuddlier adventure than before, this time for the GBA. Hamtaro Ham-Ham Heartbreak is a ridiculously cute, deceptively simple-looking adventure game. But don’t be fooled--just like its predecessor, Ham-Ham Heartbreak is a very challenging and fun game with surprising depth. Kids will love it, and adults will get a kick out of some of the subtle jokes.

The story is simple, but epic: Hamtaro and his friend Bijou must save love itself. An evil hamster named Spat is causing squabbles between hamsters, and it’s up to Hamtaro and Bijou to mend broken relationships and find out why Spat is causing so much trouble.

The key to Ham-Ham Heartbreak is the effective use of Ham-Chat (the secret hamster language). Each Ham-Chat word represents an action. For example "stickie" enables you to whack a bush with a stick, and "putput" allows you to put something on something else. You’ll need to learn certain words to solve different challenges in the game.

Gameplay is very similar to Ham-Hams Unite!, but the graphics and sound are definitely better. The game looks just like the cartoon show. There are now 24 Ham-Hams to meet instead of 12, and the world is bigger. Strangely, the Clubhouse is smaller.

Just like in the first game, there are all kinds of activities. You can buy different outfits and take up to 8 pictures. You can go to the dance room in the Clubhouse and compose a Ham-Jam, where you connect your Ham-Ham words into a dance (you can trade this dance with other people via a GBA link cable). A new feature to Ham-Ham Heartbreak is that you can collect rocks and get them polished. Who knows what secrets are inside the rocks you’ll find?

Hamtaro: Ham-Ham Heartbreak is a cute game that is truly appropriate for all ages. Just don’t let your boss catch you playing it.--Bryan Karsh

1.If you get lost,trying going back to the clubhouse.Talk to Snoozer to get tips and Harmony just might teach you a new word!
2.Are you stuck in Boo Manor?I sure was.After hamtaro falls through the trap door,tack-Q Dexter.He will leave.If you explored Boo manor,you probably remember a room with two couches.Go there and you will see a fire place.Light it using Hamspar.Two ghosts will appear.Tack-Q them both to learn "Pushie" and "Nok-Nok".Remember the room with the second elevator?Go one room over.This "'Empty Room"holds a secret!Use "Nok-Nok" and then "Pushie" on the correct part of the wall.You will see Hamtaro and Howdy."Heyhoo"them,then go upstairs and tell the two big hamsters(trying to open the elevator)"Liberty".They'll Go to the room where Hamtaro and Howdy are in the cage and rescue them .Then they'll leave.Now that you have Hamtaro,go upstairs and play the "Scrub-E" contest.Win it and go to the Third elevator.Tell the two big hamsters Hamha and you will ascess to the fourth floor!
3.To get the I.D. card in Boo manor,first go say Hamha to the Hamster blocking the door after he has that catastrophe with Spat
then go back the way you came.You will see a piece of paper fall.Go pick it up.Then use "Digdug"to climb up the pipe and buy the I.D. card."Ta-Dah" it to the hamster at the front and you may enter!
4.Wonder what word will will spice up your Class B Dance in Sandy Bay.The answer is "Hulahula".Get it in the village area of Wildwoods.
5."Ta-Dah" is a word that's very important in this game.Confused about where to get it?After you learn "Tinglie" from the girlsat the entrance of Sandy Bay,play a game of Pineapple Soccer.After you win,go back to the entrance.You will find that the girls have moved.

Calling all ham-hams! Many of you players have played "Hamtaro 1: Ham-Hams Unite!" when it first arrived on store shelves. You may have thought that reuniting all the ham-hams in the first place was enough. Think again! An unexpected turn of events is about to take place when "Hamtaro 2: Ham-Ham Heartbreak" appears on store shelves this April, only on GBA.
The story behind "Hamtaro 2: Ham-Ham Heartbreak": After reuniting the ham-hams to have a Ham-Jam party in the first place, the demon hamster, known as Spat, spreads squabbles around all of the ham-hams, causing their souls, except 2, to become totally destroyed. Now, there's no other way for the ham-hams to make up--the only way to get them back is with the help of Harmony, the angel hamster. She's the only one who will give you important information on where the ham-hams were headed to and the boss enemies you'll have to fight against. Once those objectives are fulfilled, you'll have to fight against Spat, who will be the final boss enemy in the title. Good luck!
How to play: Your team is consisted of 2 ham-hams. They're known as Hamtaro and Bijou, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. Sometimes you have to use teamwork, and sometimes you'll have to split up to solve the puzzles throughout the game. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to find all the ham-hams while solving those hair-raising mysteries and dueling your enemies. The title also contains new twists and turns around every corner. Good luck, and grab this title while you can, because they're going fast.

Hamtaro ham-ham heartbreak is a hard game.I know all the places of the map. They are : the Clubhouse , Sunny Peak , Sandy Bay , Boo Manor , Fun Land , Wild Woods , and Spat Tower. If you want to know where is the spring egg , talk to cappy.Then Use the ham-chat Bizzaroo.Then go to sunny peak and dig-dig into the hole where you use to see Seedric.Talk to Seedric inside.Go into the hotspring and dig-dig 2 times.You'll find a hot spring egg and a Ham-Dance note.Go back to wild woods and talk to cappy.First hamha then Bluh-hoo.Chase cappy and give the hamster that traps you in a cage , the hot spring egg and you'll learn Clingie.I want to ask you how do you find the last orb from sandy bay.Where is the spoon from sunny peak. when you go to these places , talk to every hamster.

I got this game for my birthday this year, I just turned twelve. The first thing I did was look at it and say "Hamtaro?". My parents smiled at each other and said "yes dear". So basically my reaction was a bad one. reluctantly I opened the package and popped it into my Gameboy Advanced (my parents smiling down on me all the while). Well enough with my story, I was suprised to find that it was just dripping with cuteness and that it was actually challenging. It turns out these Hamtaro games are certainly not for younger children. I would reccomend this game to 10 (at definate youngest) to the age of say 15 even though it may seem baby-ish.
