Star Ving is a fabulous world composed of many islands all connected by sparkling rainbows, house to the Munchables, the quenchless creatures that love eating more than anything in the world. Their most highly treasured possessions are the Legendary Orbs, keeping their lands thrifty and rich of foods. The Great Elder governs over his happy people, wielding his wisdom: repose reigns. One day, their gleeful lives changes all of a sudden: a mysterious fleet of extraterrestrial spaceships surrounds the islands, taking over the Legendary Orbs. The aliens in the UFOs are able to avail themselves of the awesome energy from the Orbs, acquiring unbelievable power and beginning their descent on Star Ving. It is a dreadful army: treacherous-looking, fear-inspiring alive strawberries, peaches, eggplants, watermelons, apples, rice balls, magic mushrooms and more many other ones than it could be believed, all captained by Don Onion, known in the whole universe for the utmost mercilessness of his. «What will we do?», wonders the Elder in dismay, when... unexpectedly he is told that the invaders are tasty, and a flash of genius makes dismay hope: if enemies are tasty, they should be eatable! Now the Munchables know what to do.

In The Munchables the player is given control over one of the two Munchables summoned by the Great Elder — the belligerant Chomper, a male one, and the pinkish Munchy, a female —, and has to go around and through levels devouring the hostile legions of fruits and vegetables. The playing character in the game has a level: trying to swallow enemies of a level higher than Chomper's or Munchy's will end with them being repelled and stroke, yet it is possible to perform a dash attack that will split them into creatures of a lower level, therefore edible. As they eat, Munchables obviously grow and level up, getting able to gorge bigger enemies. On the completion of a level, the player's performance will be subjected to evaluation: a bonus item is the reward for high enough grades, most of the times consisting in an accessory to embellish Chomper or Munchy.

Controls depend upon the Remote and the Nunchuk: the player uses the analog stick to move the character; moves the Remote upwards to jump -tilting the stick to make the jump a forward or an on-a-side one; to eat a space invader, moves in the direction of it and presses the A button when in the vicinity of it; holds Z on the Nunchuk to lock on an enemy as their target; holds down A and, when having charged it enough, unleashes the Turbo Eat power to gourmandise all the unlucky enemies in a row realizing a combo; presses B to strike it by the dash attack parting it, when coming into an enemy of a level superior than theirs. It is possible for two players to join forces in a co-operative mode, as well as to play Mirror mode, in which stages are changed in the manner of an image reflected by a mirror and a stringent time limit compels the player to haste.
