The object of the game is to successfully navigate the puzzles Dr. Brain has set up in order to become the mad scientist’s assistant (a position Dr. Brain had advertised in the local classified section).

There are also three mazes in which the player must guide an elevator between and among different floors.

Many of the puzzles require skill in mathematics and logic, but the game requires knowledge in a broad range of subjects. One puzzle requires the player to solve a cryptogram, and the penultimate level deals primarily with astronomy. In a rather surreal level, the player must put together a jigsaw puzzle which, when completed, becomes a room through which the player passes to go to the next level.

In the Multiples mode, the muncher must munch all numbers which are multiples of the number given; for example, if the designated number is 3 then the muncher must eat all 6′s, 9′s, and 12′s and avoid numbers such as 7. In Factors the muncher seeks to ingest the factors of a given number, in Primes he craves prime numbers, and in the Equality and Inequality modes the muncher devours expressions such as 2+4 which are equivalent or not equivalent (respectively) to the designated number.
