- Fragger with more of an 'action' feel; more direct in its use of skill-shots.
- Tonnes of content to plow through; unlockable skins provide a decent motivator for perfecting stages.
- Some stages poorly balanced/designed; more reliant on luck than skill.
Hambo has a familiar feel to its piggie-shooting gameplay and once you're on a roll you'll start to feel like an action hero - just don't forget the bullets are just as deadly to you as they are to everyone else.

Those familiar with Miniclip's earlier titles will be right at home with their latest cartoony puzzler, Hambo. In a way it's an extension of games like Fragger, tasking you with pulling off complicated shots by exploiting simplified physics, but this time the task is a little more personal than a grenade.
Not by much though - instead of lobbing an explosive over a wall, you're more often tasked with shooting a bullet directly at your piggy enemies. Velocity isn't necessarily important either; the bullets are deadly all by themselves, and simply getting one to fall on a pig (or having a pig fall on a bullet) will get the job done.
This leaves the game open to some rather frustratingly counter-intuitive 'gold' solutions, but more often than not it's easy enough to find the most efficient way to complete a stage.
With over 200 stages already available to play, there's a lot to work your way through as well. Thankfully each mission pack quickly introduces a handful of new environment changing hazards, a weapon or two and a variety of clever puzzles that range from making trick shots to requiring perfect timing; it's rare to feel as though you've seen a stage before, which is impressive considering the amount of initial content.
Aside from the basic missions players can unlock additional costumes to customize Hambo - it's purely aesthetic, but it also makes for a simple, yet effective incentive to try to get golds on all the stages you've completed.
While the game does occasionally suffer from a bit for its simple control scheme, Hambo is an otherwise amusing and fun action-puzzler that takes a new swipe at a formula Miniclip is already well-known for.
