The protagonist of this game is the Muncher, thus named for his insatiable appetite for knowledge. Muncher is presented with a trivia category and a board with 20 possible answers. To win at the particular board, the player must steer Muncher to the correct answers and devour them. Incorrect answers are essentially poison for Muncher and cause him to lose a chance. There are other threats on the board in the form of Troggles which are any of a variety of malicious beings that seek to destroy Muncher during his quest for knowledge.
The game features the following categories of trivia: Animals, geography, music, famous people, food and health, odds 'n' ends, and challenge. The player can configure 5 levels (1-4 and Ultimate). There are also various subcategories within each category that the player can disable if he does not want to be quizzed on that subcategory specifically.
