Word Munchers Review by: kramer4077 - 9/10

Word Munchers..tricky to think so quickly!
Thanks for reading my review of Number Munchers for Apple II!  --kramer4077

Overall: 9/10--Similar to Number Munchers, Word Munchers is probably a classic game you played in elementary school if you were a child of the late 80s or early 90s!  In Word Munchers you play as a little frog-like creature and you run around a game board trying to munch up the correct answers before you get eaten by a "troggle."  If you get caught or choose a wrong answer you lose a turn and you only get three lives.  This version of Munchers is a very challenging one.  It involves finding correct answers to vowel sounds in words.  If I was sitting in a classroom taking a test it would be no big deal to get the answers correct.  However, the game of Word Munchers is fast-paced and you must choose the answers correctly before the troggles get you!  All in all, this is an addictive, exciting game of...words...yes, I said words :)  If you never played this game in school, you need to try it today to see what you've been missing all these years!

Graphics:  9/10--The graphics are really amazing for early technology!  This game has a nice color scheme and everything is very clear.  You can clearly read the words and see where your character is moving.  It is too bad that the screenshots for the game come out really small and hard to see.  During game-play you can see everything just fine, and I'm not sure why the screenshots come out that way for Apple II games.

Sound:  10/10--EVERYBODY knows the classic sounds in these Muncher games!  You would live for the moment your fourth grade teacher told the class you were going to the computer lab that day!  It's as though you could hear that enjoyable beep, beep, beep of the muncher eating the correct answers.  Look out when the troggle gets you because it plays a little tune that will stick in your brain for a lifetime!

Addictiveness:  10/10--Yes, these Muncher games are highly addictive.  You only get three lives, and as soon as your game is over you want to play again!

Story:  There is no real story in Word Munchers.  There are some cut-scenes with the frog-like muncher and many word levels to pass through, but that's about it.

Depth:  9/10--The game generates many game boards full of vowel sounds for you to find!  I scored depth so high since there is quite a bit of content and programming that went into Word Munchers for the Apple II.

Difficulty:  9/10--Are you up for a word challenge?  Seriously how hard could it be to find words that have the /oo/ sound like in book?  Well, I'll tell you because I just replayed this for the first time in over a decade, it's extremely difficult when you have a troggle right behind you and none of the correct answers have a double o in them!  That's right, the game wouldn't have you do something simple like rhyming, but instead you have to find the correct vowel sound in a word on the game board, even if it's spelled a different way!  Just try finding all the right answers to /u/ as in mule...oh yes, "ewe" is a correct answer by the way.  This game really requires lots of concentration so you can think the words in your head or if you are able to, I recommend just saying the words out loud since then it's easier to hear the vowel sounds.

 If you're not already, try playing using the RGR plugin. It's been working fine for me there.

 I'm getting the same message, even after resetting. I can try reporting this issue so it can get fixed.
