Hamtaro: Ham-Ham Heartbreak (とっとこハム太郎3 ラブラブ大冒険でちゅ, Tottoko Hamutaro 3: Love Love Daibōken Dechu) is a Nintendo video game for Game Boy Advance, and the sequel to Tottoko Hamutaro: Tomodachi Daisakusen Dechu (Japan only) and Hamtaro: Ham-Hams Unite!. It was the second Hamtaro-game released in America and Europe, but the third one in Japan. It was released in Japan on May 3, 2002, in the USA on April 8, 2003 and in Europe on June 27, 2003.
Like its predecessors, Hamtaro: Ham-Ham Heartbreak is an adventure game. Set in the world of the Hamtaro, the player controls Hamtaro. The game expands on the gameplay of the earlier titles by adding Bijou as a partner. Together, they have to save the other ham-hams from Spat, an evil hamster with a hatred for any kind of relation, by learning ham-chat and visiting various locations.
- After Hamtaro: Ham-Ham Heartbreak, only one more Hamtaro adventure game was released: Hamtaro: Rainbow Rescue.
- The game is mentioned in the Chronicle section of Super Smash Bros. Brawl, along with Ham-Hams Unite! and Ham-Ham Games. For some reason, Rainbow Rescue is the only localized game not to be included in the Chronicle.
- The rocks gathered in this game are used in the Rubrub Room to uncover gems and fossils for accessories.
