According to Quaker Oats legend, Cap'n Crunch cereal gets its unique flavor and crunchiness from a special element known as Crunchium. Very rare and found only deep beneath the surface of the earth, Crunchium is not featured on most standard periodic tables. Nevertheless, there are some wily thieves who know all about the importance of this special element and they have stolen the world's supply. Realizing that cereal production will plummet without this special ingredient, Cap'n Crunch confronts the thieves and challenges them to a contest to win back the world's supply of Crunchium.
Instead of entering the contest himself, the Cap'n enlists a cute, furry, young Crunchling creature to compete on behalf of cereal lovers everywhere. Before the contest begins, however, the young Crunchling must be properly raised. Players need to feed their new Crunchling to keep him healthy and pet him to keep him happy. Training sessions involve different forms of running and jumping practice to hone skills that will be crucial in the final contest against the Crunchium theives.
The Macintosh installation of Cap'n Crunch Crunchling Adventure allows players to raise several Crunchlings to well-fed, healthy adults but does not allow players to put their virtual pets through any of the training or enter them in the duel against the Crunchium thieves. The Windows installation of the game features all of the creature development as well as the training exercises and duels against the thieves. The CD-ROM also features audio tracks that accompany the game and can be played on most standard CD players. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
