Your regional settlements grow based on the cures you are able to find through five tournament events. Randomly generated creatures are captured before battle, and you can consume additional creatures to gain bonuses to your abilities. There are six total attacks in the game, four of which can be used during a single turn-based battle. Enemy creatures are vulnerable to different attacks, so specializing in a single powerful attack is a poor tactic. Once victory is earned, you can either improve your existing attacks or merge with the defeated creature and gain new attack types. Munchoid is a very light action game that has some replay value due to the randomized creatures, but suffers some a large degree of repetition overall.
