The basic game play premise behind The Munchables is quite simple. A band of alien vegetable pirates has attacked the island you inhabit and you have to go after them. How exactly do you take down a vegetable? You eat it, of course. And that's exactly what you'll spend the majority of your time doing in this game - at least if you want to clear the game's many levels. But even as integral a part of the game play as munching is, you'll quickly find that there's actually a lot more to the play control system of the game than meets the eye.
