The Munchables is an action platform game that combines elements of Katamari Damacy (collecting stuff) and Pac-man (eating stuff) to create something that is both addictive and innovative.

You choose to play as either Chomper or Munchy, both of which are hungry heroes with a penchant for eating things, as their names suggest. You then eat and puzzle your way through eight levels of baddies in order to save the world from Don Onion and his evil space pirates. Using the analog stick to move around, you press the A button to chomp (or munch) away. As you eat your way through the level, you'll grow in size and level up.

You can eat anything that is a lower level than you. And if it's a higher level, then a well timed headbutt (by pressing the B button) can break it down into more easily digestible pieces. A quick flick on the Wii-mote will cause your character to jump, giving you access to higher areas of the level.

Most of the levels, baddies and bosses in Munchables are food based - as you might expect. And once you complete a level, all you have digested is metamorphosed into shiny easter eggs (not smelly dogs eggs). If you bring a friend along for the ride, they can help you in a co-operative two player mode that let's them target enemies for you - similar to Super Mario Galaxy.
