About This Game

Critter Crunch is an award winning, arcade-style puzzle game, starring the loveable Biggs. Using his long, sticky tongue to grab critters from vines above, he feeds them to each other until they burst, dropping tasty jewels for him to gobble up. Using Critter Crunch's 'Food Chain' mechanic, players will eat their way through a smorgasbord of levels and gorge on a feast of modes, including Co-op and Versus multiplayer.

Oh, and barf. Rainbow barf!

8/10

Pros:
- Has multiple game types/modes.
- Has a good amount of content to complete.
- Is a 'real' release (Little or no bugs).
- Allows for alternate/multiple methods to win tasks/puzzles. You can even complete tasks/puzzle with leftover turns/time/bonus items sometimes for more points.
- Uses small amount of resources (As it should).

Cons:
- Has story section at the start of the campaign which is unskippable and have to wait/click through painfully whenever anyone starts new campaign. --

I bougt this years and years ago for the PS3.
It's a fun Tetris-ish puzzler.
If it's under 5 bucks buy it for some casual fun.

This is a very pleasant and addictive game. Very simple in its rules, the learning curve is just right to keep enjoying the game.
Each main level has 3 sub-levels and at least one of each sub-level from the puzzle and challenge modes.
Puzzle gets you to clear the level with x number of moves and challenge mode asks you to achieve an objective within a time limit.
Great to play with friends as games are very quick and can be both co-operative and player-vs-player.

This game...what a HUGE surprise! I got it in the 2014 holiday auction from gems I received by recycling trading cards. I didn't expect it to be a game I'd actually play. Well, after I got it I saw it had local couch coop with controller support! I decided to give it a go with my sister. She and I LOVE it. We plugged in some Xbox controllers and gave it a whirl. The art is #2Kawaii4u, the soundtrack is great, and the gameplay is intense and addicting. Fantastic little game :3

This is not your typical matching game, at all. Lots of challenges and puzzles keep it going with a good adventure mode and lots of new critters to crunch. I must agree with another reviewer, I did enjoy playing this on ps3 with the controller more than here with the mouse, it just doesn't seem to have the same feel. This is a must try game even at full price!

相当有意思的小游戏,画风好可爱,音乐也好有感觉,还可以玩合作,不知道为什么玩的人这么少。

这游戏操作很简单,玩法很多样,有时候还要考虑如何才能多combo得高分,很有乐趣。各种combo还有食物链的设定,很有意思~
好友里虽然有28个人有这游戏,可是只有8个人玩过。
这游戏我给满分 10/10,能治愈人的游戏,给人一种放松感,大家可以试试哦~

This is an interesting and relaxing game. It's easy to play and has many play modes.
Have fun with this game.

From the creators of Superbrothers Sword & Sworcery comes one of my favorite puzzle games. It was the first game I bought on Steam and I went in not knowing what to expect. It is the definition of pleasant surprise. I found myself having giggle-ragefits and fistpumping at creating awesome chains. I love everything about it. I love the humor, the art, the diverse mechanics, the puzzles, and its surprising amount of depth. I don't say this often but it's worth it full price. I honestly cannot think of a flaw unless you hate cute things. The story is one you rarely see in a game: You're Biggs and you're trying to be a good father to your starving kid. Your goal is to keep the island free of cute critters and vomit rainbows into your child's mouth to keep him fed while a human traveler discovers new things about your homeland! The information he uncovers is pretty interesting.

It has online multiplayer capability, single player, and has a leaderboard for people who really wanna challenge themselves and score massive combos. The online multiplayer has Co-Op and Versus mode, both very fun to play with friends. The single player mode offers an Adventure, Puzzles, Challenges, and unlockable Survival modes. For one puzzle type, you're given a number of moves to get rid of all the critters. If you deplete those moves and the critters aren't gone, you'll be mobbed by a flurry of adorable creatures. Succeed and you can proceed to more difficult levels.

I enjoyed the crap out of this game and I strongly recommend it to anyone who loves puzzles, cute things, and/or something to sit back and relax to. Not enough peoploe play this game and I cannot recommend it enough.

8.5/10

A charming little puzzle game that will grow on you the more you play. A must-try for puzzle lovers. The only real failing is that multiplayer is a bit of a wash--you'll have to hunt down folks on the forums if you want to play online.

If this becomes (or already is) available as a mobile app, I'm sure it'll excel. Cheers!

the only bad thing i can say about this game is that the mouse control is awkward for some reason ... i was used to joypad from ps3 version and it plays good with keyboard

so anyway if you into these kind of puzzle games, match3, tetris whatever - give this a shot, you might be suprised and addicted in no time

A great game for short multiplayer sessions between two friends / a couple. Solo campaign work nicely but the charm lies in the ability to play it with another person.

I love this game ^^
It has been a while since a puzzler managed to captivate me. Now this game not only looks great (of course the manga style, cuteness and humor is not everyone's taste, in this case I personally really like it), it is also one of the very few puzzlers with some new ideas, and they even work brilliantly. In the first few levels you might think the mechanics are too complicated for fast-paced puzzle thrills, but it's actually all quite simple and you'll get the hang of it quite quickly (plus the Adventure Mode slowly shows you all the different critters and power foods). When you're through adventure mode, there are still dozens of puzzle levels (very cool, btw!), challenge levels (very tricky, btw!), the survival mode (that's what these games are all about in the end, right?) aaaand then there's local and online Co-op and versus modes...the only set back: There is hardly ever anyone online! Why doesn't anyone seem to know about this game? Totally underrated! The only things that bug me a bit are that there's no indication of when the row goes down and that survival mode is over a little fast because it gets tough rather quickly.
Anyway, get it and let's have a match :]

8.5/10

9/10 - Critter Crunch at first glance might look like just another puzzle game. With the rows of creatures having similarities, it might even seem like a match 3 puzzler. But its not! In fact, its a quite unique spin on the genre. Instead of matching like objects, you will instead use the critters as a food chain of sorts.

In Critter Crunch, you play the role of Biggs, a puffy orange and white looking creature who looks like he would fit right at home in a Nintendo game. He's cute, he's adorable, and he has a big appetite for gems. As Biggs, you will be running back and forth on the screen grabbing critters, and rearrangfing them or ultimately feeding them to each other. Smaller critters feed the critters one size up from them. 2 critters, or a stuffed critter, will make the bigger critter explode, releasing gems for Biggs to eat. There are in the spirit of these type of puzzle games, special objects to help or hurt you in the game, as they appear as pieces throughout the rows. For instance, bombs may appear, which can clear out a section of critters. Biggs' son even pops up if you clear a chain of 8 critters, allowing for a huge score boost. All in all, very fun puzzle mechanics in this title.

What's more is that this game looks gorgeous. Probably the nicest looking puzzle game I have come across on Steam. It's not popping with particle effects, or 3D. Instead, it chooses a hand drawn high res sprite look, that you would expect to see in a game like Rayman Origins for example. the animations for Biggs are wonderful also. The game is very colorful, but not in a seizure inducing sort of way. Everything just looks extremely crisp, and smooth.

Buy this game!

This game proves that no matter how cute it is..."DAMN NATURE! YOU SCARY!" It's a good game for all ages with funny fun facts. It also guides you along in teaching you the mechanics of the game. A good casual game to have in your library.

Super fun and cute. Sometime you need a vacation from the headshots and this is just the thing. The art is well done, the gameplay is quick and requires some thought to get big points. Real easy starting but gets more challenging near the end. Very reminiscent of old school puzzlers but with poppy colors.
