Fight World Hunger In Zany New Physics Runner Hunger Crunch
It’s always great to see video games used as a way to help make the world a better place, and one terrific new level based runner called Hunger Crunch is doing just that. That’s because in addition to being a pretty awesome game in it’s own right Hunger Crunch was also developed entirely by the charity organization Rice Bowls in order to help raise awareness about the problem of food scarcity around the world. This exceptionally well animated high flying platformer turns the fight against hunger into an endearing cartoon adventure that uses wacky monsters as visual metaphors for the destruction hunger causes.
As a brave young hero it’s up to players to ride their pet dragon into battle and take hunger down by jumping on its minions heads Mario style. Players face off against these monsters in impressive looking sidescrolling stages where they need to dodge traps, snatch power ups, and hop on hunger in order to make it through to the end of each section where they’ll face off against wacky bosses based around different problems like drought. What’s neat about Hunger Crunch is that while it does have a good message it also does real world good as well by taking 100% of the proceeds from in app purchases and using it to feed starving children around the world.
If you’re up for a terrific new platformer that can do some real good in the world be sure to check out Hunger Crunch. It’s available now for free on Google Play.
