The home planet of the hungry Munchables is at stake when it is invaded by the evil Don Onion and his vicious band of space pirates. As their lively planet has been usurped, the embattled Munchables have only one hope; to devour their food enemies to grow large enough to defeat Don Onion and inevitably return peace to their captive land.

In The Munchables, players are called upon to eat and defeat over 150 insidious enemies who have taken over the planet including Eggplanter and Rice Baller. In this tantalisingly addictive game, players can also enjoy Mirror Mode, where stages are in reverse order and they must beat the clock in order to save the world. Eating your way to take on Don Onion and his delicious minions, The Munchables will leave you hungry for more!

 Short-lived but fun in spades and cheap to boot

The Munchables is Katamari with platformer overtones which become more pronounced as the game progresses. Rather than rolling up misc objects the focus is on traversing stages like a typical 3D platformer and gorging on space pirates, who happen to be living fruit and vegetables. It's cute as a button, contains some replay and an acceptable catalogue of tunes to listen to.

The downsides are that it is only a clutch of hours in terms of a full play-through, despite being replayable in short bursts it isn't as replayable as Katamari games, and jumping requires the player to flick the remote rather than press a button (just plain silly, if the flailing control gimmick isn't needed then for God's sake spare us all and map commands to buttons).

Because of the above I'd say it's not a game to buy if you have a small collection, just because there needs to be a cool-down period before picking it up again. The kids should love it, however, as well as Katamari fans and anyone who likes this style of Japanese game.

Reviewers call it repetitive, but virtually any game could be called that, I think the main thing which holds it back, as well as the numerous other short-but-good games, is price. Play's offering this recent release for £10 (at the time of writing), it's a no-brainer. Save me a seat at the all-you-can-eat space pirate buffet.
