Hamster Kombat due to its massive adoption and popularity has run into trouble in some parts of the world.  

According to an Associated Press report, the Crypto game has been fingered by elements of the Iranian government as a distraction from the national presidential election.  

Rear Adm. Habibollah Sayyari, the deputy chief of Iran’s military, described the app as part of the West’s “soft war” against Iran’s theocracy ahead of the election. 

“One of the features of the soft war by the enemy is the ‘Hamster’ game,” Sayyari said, according to the state-run IRNA news agency.  

He theorized that the enemy is popularizing the game so that people would be distracted and not pay attention to the plans of presidential candidates. 

Hamster Kombat belongs to the Web 3 play-to-earn crypto projects category featuring other popular projects like Tapswap and Notcoin.
