Eets Munchies is a Puzzle Game developed and published by Klei Entertainment. It was first released for iOS on March 6th, 2014, and then ported to PC through Steam 5 days later.

The goal of the game is to help an adorable hungry creature named Eets devour cake in increasingly devious puzzles, collecting smaller treats along the way to improve their rank. The creature will move automatically, but the player is able to place various strange creatures in each stage, helping the creature bypass obstacles and reach its goal.

This game features the following tropes:

  • Alliterative Name: The first set of levels is named Furrio Forest.
  • Big Eater: Eets, who'll immediately swallow entire lollipops and cakes whole.
  • Circling Birdies: If Eets manages to fall off a platform, you are shown a screen where he sits dazed flat with his tongue stuck out, eye full of swirls and stars circling around his head.
  • Emotional Powers: Eating certain foods changes Eets' emotions, and how he behaves. For instance, chilli peppers make him visibly angry, while onions make him too scared to jump.
  • Floating Platforms: The levels mainly consist of these.
  • Friendly Fireproof: The Bombos instantly blast apart rocks if they fall onto them, but their explosions do not phase the Inhale Whales at all.
  • Gameplay Grading: There are three lollipops on each level, which act as the equivalent of end-level screen stars in the other mobile games.
  • Jagged Mouth: Eets has one, but no actual teeth, as can be clearly seen on the menu screen.
  • The Lost Woods: The first set of levels, named Furrio Forest.
  • Misplaced Wildlife: Played for laughs with the Inhale Whales, which have wings and are found hovering in mid-air in levels that do not actually have water anywhere.
  • Monster Allies: The key to solving puzzles is placing creatures that can assist Eets in the right spots.
  • No Plot? No Problem!: There's no real story to any of the proceedings.
  • Punny Name: The Inhale Whale.
  • Water-Geyser Volley: Here, the geyser comes from an Inhale Whale's blowhole, and you need to intentionally guide Eets into its mouth, so that it can get blown out and to a higher location.
