Slowly but surely Gamistry is expanding and improving their adorable puzzler, Munch Time. The game launched in February and gained 33 percent more content in March. Today, Munch Time and Munch Time HD receive a few more handfuls of puzzles and challenges.
Things certainly aren’t getting easier for Munch as he moves from the blazing desert of v1.1 to the steamy jungle in v1.2. Featuring another 21 puzzles, Lost Jungle increases the total number of levels to 84, up by 25 percent. Level designs appear to be a little more challenging than before and include two more elements.
Helpful, yet potentially deadly, the carnivorous plant can swing Munch like other flowers, but is hoping for a meal at the same time. Easily identifiable by their snake-like head, these flowers are unsurprisingly color-coded, however, attaching and releasing from them is a lot trickier. Munch is automatically tethered to a carnivorous flower when entering the range of reach, and can only detach by grabbing hold of another flower. Stay connected too long and Munch becomes lunch.
Still a tricky and sticky situation, the second jungle item is moss. Hanging off of ledges and walls, Munch can temporarily use it to climb vertical surfaces and cling to rooftops. Oddly, Munch can’t go from the ground to a moss covered wall. Instead, you must fling the little lizard at a moss covered surface using a flower, sort of like tossing a fuzzy ball onto a Velcro covered wall. In this circumstance, the dangerous aspect is falling, because once moss is used, it vanishes.
