"It's going to be tough to talk about Krunch without also mentioning games like Super Meat Boy or VVVVVV, so I'll get it out of the way now: Krunch is similar to these titles in that you will die. A lot. You will also, however, quickly learn from your mistakes and rarely blame the game for cheap deaths." - Patrick Hancock
