PSN This Week: Hamsters Triumphantly Reclaim Monkey BallsS

Marble Madness meets Super Monkey Ball this week on the PlayStation Network, as TikGames reveals Hamsterball, the game that reclaims running balls for adorable rodents everywhere.

TikGames' Howard Lehr is the one that calls Hamsterball Marble Madness meets Super Monkey Ball in the PlayStation Blog post revealing the new title, downloadable this Thursday for $9.99. It's a bit of an odd description, really, as I've always imagined Super Monkey Ball to be Marble Madness meets monkeys.

Either way, there'll be plenty of rolling when Hamsterball hits PSN, featuring two player split-screen, seven player sumo, whatever that means, and plenty of single player levels that will have you navigating your ball-encased hamster in places ball-encased hamsters were ever meant to go.

I particularly like the screen they've posted on the PlayStation Blog, showing a multiplayer race with multiple AI characters participating. Aiai?
