Hamsters are a level goal. They move across the field with each move, occupying free holes. There are fewer or an equal number of hamsters compared to the holes. If there is a hole on the game field that a Hamster can get into, it will enter this hole with the next move.
If a Hamster does not have a hat on, it can be stunned. A stunned Hamster is not able to move across the game field for the duration of one move, but if you fail to stun it, the Hamster will start moving again.
To stun a Hamster, you must destroy a piece next to it by making a match, using a tool or a bonus. An explosion or a tool will also do damage if it affects a cell with a Hamster.
Holes cannot move across the game field.
