Meet Newton, The Flying Hamster. He Shoots Toaster Robots

By Spencer . January 14, 2010 . 2:16pm

The Game Atelier is working on a cute ‘em up for PSP called The Flying Hamster.


It stars Newton, a laser shooting hamster equipped with a leaf jet pack. Players will soar through sunflower fields, a Japanese city, and ancient Egypt. Since this is a horizontal shooter, Newton has enemies to blast and The Game Atelier made an interesting group of adversaries. Things to beware of in The Flying Hamster: penguins with umbrellas, ninja squirrels, exploding foxes, anti-air cows and toaster robots!

No word on a release date, but after seeing these screenshots I’m intrigued.

    Haha! Looks awesome.
    Seeing those umbrella penguins make my mind immediately jump to Prinnies, though.

  • I’m curious about the effect of beer, as seen in the bottom right of a few screenshots. If I can get my flying hamster drunk, count me in.

    It looks as if the hamster can upgrade or change it’s laser through different weapons, like seeds and flames. heh, first picture I saw with the owl, first thought was Kirby in Dry Dry Woods. Get a slight Kirby (yay!) vibe from the graphics, though the beer and gunslinging penguins kinda breaks that illusion. I am intrigued.
