Description of Number Munchers

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!

On Windows 10 Pro, it doesn't allow me to download the software even after unzipping it. Please tell me there's another way to do this or they'll be coming out with a newer software version that's compatiblle with this day in age type of computers?!?!?

My school must've had an affinity for MECC games because I remember this game as well as Snap Dragon and another Munchers game (Super Munchers, I think). I love how every fourth level completed leads to a cutscene where the Muncher outsmarts the Troggle a la Looney Tunes, but I STILL hate seeing the Muncher get eaten by the Troggle.

I remember playing this game in grade school (I don't think they even still call it that, lol). This, Word Munchers, and Oregon Trail.

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!
