Everyone has a dream, and for one little critter that dream is to go into outer space. Mr Nibbles Forever, developed by Michael Cann of Epic Shrimp, puts you in the paws of a hamster on a mission. It’s up to you to tilt, tap and guide Mr Nibbles on his big adventure beyond the stars.

Everyone’s favourite hamsternaut is back! Escape the cage, avoid spiders, collect nibbles and rocket to the moon! Help Mr Nibbles break out of his cage-prison and roam across the dangerous spider-infested backyard landscape before hopping in his handy rocket ship and blasting into space. Each stage contains unique graphics, backgrounds and sounds.

Mr Nibbles Forever is available on Android for free right now.
UPDATE: Look out! The adventurous hamster has also made his way to the iOS store!
