My take on things

M.U.N.C.H. now Available to play

ScreenshotIf you’re looking for a quick and easy game then give M.U.N.C.H. a try. I just completed it and wanted to make it available to everyone. It’s very compact (less then 500k download, single 1.3 Meg file when uncompressed) and easy to install (simply unrar it into any directory) and easy to run (just double click on the exe file “Munch”. The object of the game is to consume anything smaller than you. As you consume more stuff you grow bigger, allowing you to consume bigger enemies. As your levels progress the enemies become more challenging.

Not much bells and whistles in this game, it was written as simple as possible. It does have an option for sound, but to save on bandwidth I left out the sound files. It uses simple .wav files and if you would like to add sound to the game then simply look at the Sound option in the game and it will list the files that are needed and what sounds they are for. Simply find a wav file that sounds like a “slurp” and then give it the exact names as described and place them in the same directory as the exe. You can even put your favorite theme wav in to play in the games background. The game graphics are very basic, but this is a fun and addictive game written for speed and enjoyment. Please comment if you try the game and let me know what you think. The only file this program creates is a 1k ‘munch.dat’ file that stores game settings and player highscores which is kept in the same directory as the exe. If you enjoy this game then let me know and I will present other game projects that I’ve done and/or been involved with. This game is freeware. The download link is M.U.N.C.H (

  1. neat. Got to level 4. Why don’t you upload the sound fx as a separate download? When I entered my high score the top status bar flickered, think it’s only on one buffer not both.

  2. Fun game, I’m sure you could have something commercial there if you worked more on it 🙂

  3. My original inspiration came from a commercial game called ‘Tasty Planet’ (found on the retro64 site). I don’t think that I could develop this game without running into copyright problems which is why MUNCH was done with such simple graphics.

    I just wanted to try my hand at programming the concept for simple playing fun and thought it turned out well enough that others might enjoy it as well.

  4. This is surprisingly good fun. Would you object to me having a go at turning this into a flash game?
