Hamster Academy

Help of the Breeder Universe


This is the World where everyone starts off: it is in this world that you have to raise your hamster and build its cage. To enable you to evolve in the game, you get a basic salary from the start(7 coins/day) which allows you to make everyday purchases. You are then free to sign up for training which affords you a career, allowing you to earn more money so that you can purchase everything you need for your hamster.

Getting Started

What currency is used?

The local currency is the gold coin. Each breeder earns at least 7 coins per day. The game allows you to sign up for training, enabling you to earn more coins. At any time, you can go to town and choose a new career by purchasing training. Be careful, take note that if a breeder is absent for more than 3 days, his salary is no longer paid out. You will therefore have to login at least once every 3 days to earn your salary!

How do I water the hamster?

To ensure your hamster gets enough water, you just need to put a feeding bottle in its cage. This is vital, otherwise your hamster can get sick very quickly, and its health can decline rapidly. While buying a cage, you need to buy a feeding bottle along to be put in the cage. After this, you only need to change the water regularly.

How do I feed the hamster?

To feed the hamster, you must have a bowl in its cage with sufficient food supply. Sunflower seeds are its staple food. You need to ensure that the hamster is never hungry and that its bowl is never completely empty, otherwise its health and mood start decreasing. Feeding and watering the hamster are the two most important tasks you must never forget!

How to make the hamster build its nest?

One of the missions proposed to the player is building its nest. The hamster will need 3 items to do so:

  • Straw;
  • Cotton;
  • Twigs.

All these items are available in the shop. As soon as you give them to your hamster, he starts building his nest! The time needed for the construction depends on his ability to Build (one of the specific choices to make when registering). The time needed may vary from 24 hours to 1 week. To accelerate the construction of the nest and to be able to move more quickly to the next level, you also have the possibility to purchase a construction training or to buy a code Allopass , in this last case the construction becomes instantaneous.

How to take my hamster for a walk?

To take the hamster for a walk, you have to purchase a special leash for hamsters from the shop (only available for breeders at level 4). Once the purchase of the permit is done, you can take your hamster for a walk once a day at the most. The walk in the woods is especially appreciated by the hamster who loves this type of entertainment (he finds his natural environment). In addition, your hamster may find a tassel on the way (which increases the mood). However you must be careful as your hamster could catch a disease (poisonous mushrooms and microbes are common in the forest).

How to change job?

If you do not earn enough coins, you can change job. This allows you to increase your daily income. Only the breeders who reached the level 3 can do so.

It is interesting to pay more at the start to be sure to make lots of money afterwards. To change job, you must go to town then click on the tab Mon trade.

How are the points of the breeder calculated?

They are calculated every 5 minutes and for each act. Then the information is updated.

The rules to calculate the score are:

  • The more points the hamsters have, the more points the breeder has
  • The more cages the player has, the more points he gets. They must be very clean and as large as possible (while avoiding empty space)
  • The more items a player owns, the more points he gets
  • If the player has got an avatar, he gets more points (+10%)

But if one or more of his hamsters are sick, he loses points (-25% for each sick hamster).

The next section explains how the scores for the hamsters are calculated.

How to improve the health of the hamster?

The health of the hamster evolves depending on many parameters. The three basic actions (feeding, watering and changing the litter) allow you to keep your hamster in a good health. If you would like your hamster in very good shape, there are many items in the shop to help you improve his health (for instance vitamins). You must know as well that a hamster who runs on the wheel or make other types of physical activities will be more easily in a better state of health. Some food items such as salads are very good for the hamster. And he loves it! Be careful to take good care of your hamster. If his health level drops close to 0, he will be sent to the veterinarian to receive intensive care. This prevents him from dying, but intensive care is very expensive if you want your hamster back. If your hamster is in bad health, you can check the follwing things:

  • His bowl is not empty;
  • There is a feeding bottle in his cage;
  • Chips are clean;
  • Physical strength is sufficient.

How to improve the mood of the hamster?

If the mood of your hamster is low, this means he is not happy in his cage. The main elements affecting the mood of the hamster are :

  • An empty bowl;
  • Poor health;
  • Too many hamsters in the same cage (hamsters are solitary animals);
  • The lack of feeding bottle;
  • The lack of care (caresses, care creams …).

To improve the mood of your hamster, you can think of different entertainments for him (outdoor trainings, rugby or football games, …).

How to improve the beauty of the hamster?

One of the main parameters for the general condition of the hamster is its appearance. This is especially important in the world of the Academy. The more beautiful your hamster is, the more popular he is! It is therefore essential to carress the hamster, to brush him and to apply a care cream on his fur. The cleanliness of the cage affects his beauty, a hamster who lives in a dirty cage can not be clean. The items offered in Beauty City can help you improve the beauty of your hamster.

How to make your hamster a sporty type?

It is very important for the health and the mood of your hamster that he does some sport. His fitness depends on it! To become stronger and in better shape, the hamster should do some sport. Here are several options:

  • Run in the wheel in his cage;
  • A bodybuilding training;
  • To buy accessories (bike, swing, ball, …).

But be carefull, your hamster should not do too much sport and several hours are required in between two musculation training!

NB: it takes several days for your hamster to get muscles with the wheel whereas the results are immediate with the dumbbells!

My hamster is too skiny or too fat, what should I do?

The ideal weight for hamsters is 120g. If his weight is too low (less than 105g) or too high (above 135g), his health, fitness and beauty decrease. If he is too skiny, you can feed him more often and let him play sports (to gain muscles) more regularly. If he is too fat, you can check if there is a wheel in his cage and make sure he gets enough physical exercise. Give him less food and buy a maximum of sport items.

My hamster is way too big, I can not bring his weight down ...

There is a slightely twisted way for the hamster to loose weight in once, without using slimming pills. But we'll let you guess how to do that! Just a clue: you must make him run in the wheel, but if possible, not with any wheelbut a fiddled wheel… (only possible for breeders at Level 3)

How to have babies?

Like any pet, the hamster may have babies as soon as she is 1 month old . Only femal hamsters can have babies. We must then choose them a male hamster within the Hamster Academy. Pregnancy lasts about 1 week and the amount of babies vary between 1 and 3, both males and females. Their genetic characteristics depend on their parents ones. Warning! Once the babies are born, you must take care of them! It is out of the question to let them die of hunger, thirst … It is strongly advised to buy them a new cage so they do not spend their time fighting.

How are points of the hamster calculated ?

The points are equal to the sum of health, beauty, strength, mood, experience, popularity, dance, song, humour and music.

They also increase:

  • If there is a music instrument
  • If married (+10%)
  • If he belongs to a band (he gets the points of the band)

They are reduced:

  • When ill (division by 2)

The calculation of the points of each band is explained here.

My hamster has chewed the bars of the cage ... how to avoid it?

All hamsters have the habit of biting the bars of their cage. This allows them to use their teeth that grow constantly. To prevent your hamster from chewing the bars, you can buy from the shop a stone to gnaw. You must put one stone per cage to ensure that the bars are no longer biting (gnawing stones are available for the farmers at level 4).
