"It's going to be tough to talk about Krunch without also mentioning games like Super Meat Boy or VVVVVV, so I'll get it out of the way now: Krunch is similar to these titles in that you will die. A lot. You will also, however, quickly learn from your mistakes and rarely blame the game for cheap deaths." - Patrick Hancock

Death is but the next great adventure


It's going to be tough to talk about Krunch without also mentioning games like Super Meat Boy or VVVVVV, so I'll get it out of the way now: Krunch is similar to these titles in that you will die. A lot. You will also, however, quickly learn from your mistakes and rarely blame the game for cheap deaths.While the inspiration is clear, Krunch is unique enough to separate itself and stand on its own two…err, to suspend itself and float on its own.

While there is some semblance of a plot, nothing is made very clear. What is clear is the goal -- to run away and escape from whatever destructive hellhole the round protagonist begins in. On this journey, he'll encounter plenty of obstacles and dangers whose sole purpose is to destroy him and his stupid little circle face. At least, that's what I imagine they think of the protagonist, since it's all too clear that everything is out to obliterate him.
