Couple of questions --

  • The box art is just a throwback, yeah? This wasn't an old Sega game brought back from the dead?
  • Isn't Krunch also the name of some kind of software development strategy? Is that just a coincidence?

The box art isn't the real box art, it was a joke I painted on Twitter like a year ago - whomever created the wiki page didn't bother checking facts, apparently.

Oh man I remember sorta renting this game when I was a kid. Old 8-Bit games are the best!! I love how hard they are and how I forget that and then I play them again without my fucking rose tinted glasses and suck at them in a the first few minutes so I stop playing them but then keep telling people what an 8-Bit fan I am!! Remember Columns? LOL!!!

Does "Masocore" mean really hard or "Bullshit unfair" like IWBTG? If it's the former then I might give it a shot...

There's tons of hard and arguably a few "bullshit unfair" spots in KRUNCH... Overall, a challenging experience! I love someone here tagged it Masocore :) Tempted to rename our upcoming Hardcore Mode to MASO Mode.
