Hi! Hamtaro Ham-Ham Challenge (とっとこハム太郎 は～い! ハムちゃんずのハムハムチャレンジ! あつまれは～い!, Tottoko Hamutarou Haai! Hamuchanzu no Hamuhamu Charenji! Atsumare Haai), is a puzzle game for the Nintendo DS made by AlphaDream and published by Marvelous in Japan, 505 Games in PAL regions, and Natsume in North America. The game was released in Japan on March 15, 2007, in Europe on May 23, 2008 and in North America on September 23, 2008.
The player uses Hamtaro to explore the area play a variety of fun and educational brain-training games designed for elementary children. Parents can monitor their children's progress and even reward them with items based on their scores.
- On release, AlphaDream thought that as Hamtaro hadn't aired in the US or Europe for almost 5 years, no-one would remember the Hams and so requested a quiet release for the game. Also to remind people who the Characters were, in the US and EU version had a Cut scene at the start of the game to remind the player who they were.
