About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.


'Habitrail Hamster Ballz' (PS2/PC) Announced - Screens

Data Design Interactive announced today a joint partnership deal with Rolf C. Hagen Inc. to produce a computer game to be released on the Playstation 2 and PC. Read more for some screens ...

The game will be based on Hagen's best selling Habitrail brand, which makes exciting habitats, accessories, bedding and food for the small animal market, such as the new Habitrail Playground range which provides a fun adventurous environment for your pet.

The game is based on Habitrail's own Character 'Herbie the Hamster'. You have to navigate Herbie safely around the house inside his plastic exercise ball. There are four lavishly designed environments including a kid's bedroom, the kitchen, the garden and even the attic! Each of these environments has cleverly designed puzzles and difficulties, so you must be on your guard to successfully direct Herbie to the end of each level and win the prize of his favourite Living World hamster food. However do not worry, Herbie is never injured or goes hungry for too long!

The levels in each environment gets progressively harder with combinations of challenging puzzles, tight cornering and moving obstacles that require either skilfull avoidance or clever manipulation by Herbie to reach new sections of the level. There are even 5 easier levels for junior players as well as a 'Beginner' and 'Expert' mode for those with nimble fingers!
