Munch Time is a reasonably entertaining physics-based arcade puzzler starring (yet another) cute cartoon animal. While most of the gameplay is derivative of similar, earlier games, Munch Time does offer up a relatively interesting twist with its tongue-swinging shtick.

You play as Munch, a photogenic chameleon, as he searches for his lunch on a series of increasingly complex levels. Munch can move across the ground with a tap, but his preferred method of locomotion is with the looping swing of his adhesive tongue, lunging from flower to flower by tapping on them. This requires some timing and momentum management to perfect, and the game mixes this up by having different colored flowers that you can only attach to once you've eaten a bug of the corresponding color (the biology and chemistry of this arrangement is a mystery). As you might expect, the goal of each short level is to collect up to three hard-to-reach stars before finishing the level (by chomping your grub lunch). Munch Time offers up a few more obstacles and environmental tweaks as the game progresses.

Given the so-so gameplay and the fact that the game only gives you 42 levels to explore, Munch Time is probably only worthwhile for die-hard fans of physics-based puzzlers.
