DOS - 1990
Description of Number Munchers
Number Munchers is a game published in 1990 by MECC, the theme is math / logic, puzzle-solving. It features a educational genre and uses a top-down perspective.
In the designer's own words about this popular children's title: "You, as the energetic green Muncher, run around a grid eating prime numbers while being chased by wicked and hungry Troggles who eat you if they catch you. One of MECC's all-time best-selling titles, it's basically just very entertaining flashcards based on the classic Pac-Man model." Like IBM's early classic Adventures in Math, MECC took a KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid), route to edutainment for Number Munchers, and pulled it off with a game that's very easy to learn, but very captivating for its target group (kids ages 5 - 12). A great game that will keep your kids entertained for a long time while brushing up on their algebraic skills. Thumbs up!

I played this in school lab so much. We had the Apple ][ version but this looks exactly the same. Graphics were great for the era. For an even older math game for basic math, try AstroGrover!
Watch out for the Troggles!

I try to change the difficulty level, but it says the disk is protected? How can I fix this?

WOOOOOOW... just wow!
So many fond memories I remember playing this on an old Apple 2E with a big old 4" floppy in glorious monochrome green! But IN COLOR!? I'LL TAKE IT!
