The back of the disc sleeve has no information regarding the game itself. Put simply, Crunchling Adventure is a virtual pet game. Feed and train a crunchling in order to defeat evil space pirates from stealing Crunchium, the ingredient that makes Cap’n Crunch cereal so good. 

Crunchling Adventure was a promotional game. The CD-ROM was included in double packs of Cap’n Crunch cereal boxes. A copy could also be bought by mailing in a form when buying a single box.
