Eets Munchies is an adorably animated puzzle game starring a furry white rabbit/flea amalgamation, one which I honestly can't determine if cute or creepy. It's a relatively simple-to-pick up game with basic controls and (for the most part) a friendly interface; this, combined with a gradual learning curve, helps Eets live up to its all-ages claims. It's a surprisingly fun game to play, and I couldn't help but find myself enjoying each level.
-Gameplay & Controls-
The game revolves around placing a series of wooden platforms and powerups while triggering different mechanisms to help our friend Eets get to a brightly colored cake at the end of each level. Along the way, the player can also grab different candies as a sort of optional collectible; gathering the different collectibles became rather challenging as time went on. While the concept is simple, navigating through each puzzle becomes an overall enjoyable experience. With the addition of Steam Workship, the amount of puzzles for Eets to navigate is essentially endless, which should keep at least a few ingenuous players coming back for more.
-Graphics & Visuals-
Despite some initial awkwardness, I found Eets to be rather graphically charming. The different machinations and animals he uses to help him on his way are lively and animated, and I couldn't help but fall in love with the Inhale Whales. Each individual World is visually different, and in some cases rather distinctive, although I have to say that I didn't much like the desert motiff of World Two. However, the game gives off an aura of 2D eye-candy after one's intial impressions, so I have to say I'm rather sold on most of the designs.
-Music & Audio-
The tracks in Eets Munchies are rather upbeat and whimsical, although after making it few the first world or two they start to become repetitive. They're overall quite enjoyable, and they certainly add some appropraite ambience for some an adorable title, but one could have hoped for a bit more diversity as far as music goes.
Overall, Eets Munchies is a rather enjoyable yet simple experience for the casual puzzle gamer. It's fun and charming, and has a learning curve suitable for just about everyone. I have to say that I wasn't planning on liking the game at all when I first started playing, but it ended up winning me over within the first ten levels, and I found myself striving for every collectible. I think it's worth getting if just to play in some spare time, although I wouldn't say it's meant to be experienced in long sessions as it can struggle as far as holding one's interest. Ultimately, the game is surprisingly fun to play, and I have to say that I would recommend.
