Portrayal in Adaptations

2003: Sierra's The Hobbit:

Bell Goodchild is a Hobbit child, playing hide-and-seek with Hamfast, Sadoc, Hilda and a somewhat unwilling Bilbo Baggins. She hides on the top floor of the Old Mill, which is only accessable by riding the water-wheel. Bell and Hamfast are shown to have a mutual love interest, but neither of them told the other.[3]
