Plot

The boy Wesley (voiced by Short) is riding his bike during a storm. He stops in front of a mansion looking for shelter. Wesley is captured by the house's owner, Dr. Drod, and becomes the subject of his monster experiment. The experiment goes wrong, turning the boy only a half-monster. With the help of Brian (Levy), a sentient brain in a jar, Wesley has to find a way out Dr. Drod's mansion and defeat another experiments who block his way.

By eating the right items scattered by the mansion Wesley can transform himself into a variety of forms (e.g. Wesley eats a Bunsen burner and turns into a fire-breathing monster) who help him defeat the enemies.

Reception

Entertainment Weekly's Bob Strauss described the Creature Crunch as "passably enjoyable".[5] The game artwork reminded him of John Kricfalusi style.
