Default Free Game of the Week: The Flight of the Hamsters!

Apparently even hamsters have a social life and this is an example of what they get up to! The object of the game is to help the hamsters enjoy the extreme sport of 'hamster launching' and see how far you can get each one travel.

Link to Game: http://www.boreme.com/boreme/funny-2...amsters-p1.php

P.S. If you know of any other free games that you think MoneySavers might appreciate email: freegame@moneysavingexpert.com

Thanks to Glyn for this week's recommendation.

Yeah! Looks like I'm the first sad person to play the game and thank you for it.
Thanks Natasha, needed a bit of cheering up this evening - the hamsters did it

My longest was 44ft but a total of 93ft because 2 went nowhere

I think the choice of music is very funny

longest 89 ft, with a total 265ft.

One of mine went into space though! It just kept going up... and once in the stars was still going up higher. Unfortunately, because it was virtually straight up (instead of diagonally up), when he eventually came down again, it'd only gone 32ft!

Okayyy - got it now. I didn't get the pillow thing at all - I thought the one on top was yanking it out from underneath the one coming down; didn't cop that pillow hamster whacks jumping hamster and then the latter takes off!

Nice to see that even when they crash through the ground, they leap up smiling!

oh, how am I going to get any work done. I'm loving this game. I spent too much time on the helicopters last week!

longest hamster - 387
Highest total - 845

I reckon you could break 1000 with some practice.

just got a new super flyer.

Longest single - 1140!!!!!!!!
Total -1786
Tip
keep low and flat where possible. Try to keep skimming to pick up rockets. you go faster if you're travelling straight across when you hit them. Use the glide sparingly just to keep flat. If you see you are slowing down, keep an eye out for the springboards and use them rather than hope there's another rocket soon.
