Battle Hamster

Windows 3.X - 1995

It is a two-player battle to the finish with hamsters. There are no endings and only one character. One repetitive song is all there is for background music. A few cheesy sound effects make up the voice portion of the game. Special moves are few in number and only involve holding the down key and pressing an attack button. The only thing this game is really good for is its cuteness. If you like 'cutesy' fighting games, this one's for you.

Gameplay is very similar to the classic Battleship - There are three grids on the screen: The left grid shows your opponent's playfield and tells you if you've hit one of his Sats, or if you missed. The middle grid allows you to choose what area you will attack during your turn. The right grid displays your own Sats, their status,...

The game shows only one perspective at the time but by using one of the three scanners the perspective shifts and it also says how many enemy ships are on he chosen axis. Just like in Battleship he doesn't know where these ships exactly are. He has to aim his airship's gun to a certain coordinate - if he hits an enemy ship, it gets destroyed. The position also gets marked so he doesn't shoot the same field twice. The Zilog ships don't...

Forty-nine cards are dealt into seven stacks of seven cards. The first four stacks are dealt face up, the remainder have three cards face down and four cards face up.

Here we have an expanded version of the author's earlier Dopefish Lives! featuring two- and four-player modes, but no single-player game. In addition to the "fishfest" mode, which reproduces the original game's simple schoolfish-eating game (but makes it competitive -- who can eat the most the fastest?), this game also takes a nod from the FPS revolution its parent companies spawned and features two- and four-player deathmatches (aka "dopematch"es) where the players must line themselves up properly to eat a schoolfish precisely at the moment when they're facing an opponent, as the food quickly...

The player swims around the screen and opens the goofy fish's gaping maw by hitting the Ctrl key... hopefully timed appropriately for when a little schoolfish might just be swimming in (and then...indicating its appreciation with a resounding belch).
