    Critter Crunch is one of the more clever puzzle games I've played recently, and it has charm and personality to spare. The numerous modes grant it a longevity that makes the $6.99 asking price easy to justify even for the tightest wallets.
  2. Tight controls, gorgeous graphics and hard enough to keep you coming back for more. A genuinely fantastic little puzzle game.
  3. With solid gameplay mechanics and the iconic character designs of Biggs and company, it's a game that belongs in any puzzle fan's digital library. Even if you could resist the adorable allure of Biggs, the price might stop you in your tracks. At only $6.99, Critter Crunch may very well be one of the best values in puzzle gaming you'll find this year.
  4. A very pretty, charming and quite original action-puzzler. [Jan 2010]
  5. Critter Crunch is one of the best puzzlers around, it's highly addictive and looks stunning. Anyone with a PS3 should own this title.

    It sets a new standard for graphics in the genre and is simply one of the best looking games on PSN. Luckily, it also has the gameplay to back up the looks.
  7. It's inventive and engrossing - and almost ridiculously cheap. [Feb 2010, p.115]

    Puzzle games are constantly being re-invented these days, but what the guys at Capybara games did goes beyond anything we see on PSN, XBLA Puzzle games are constantly being re-invented these days, but what the guys at Capybara games did goes beyond anything we see on PSN, XBLA and even the App Store (Where Critter Crunch initially debuted). It has got the looks (setting a pretty high hand-draw graphics standards), has got the soul (iconic characters, funky universe and an absurdly surreal sense of humor) and of course, has their gameplay mechanics completely nailed. Totally addictive, this version is seriously improved from the one you may have on your iPhone. With a price that comes really handy in comparison to other PSN full-titles, this is a must buy.... for everyone. Collapse

Graphics are excellent and crisp, a great deal of detail and design were put into the interface, fonts, and overall design. The game is fun and easy to pick up. Tutorials are not too long and really give new users a good feel for the gameplay. The price is right, also. Expand
