Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is a video game tie-in based on the film of the same name which is also based upon the 1978 children's book of the same name. The game allows the player to control Flint Lockwood, the film's hero as he must save his town and the world from the rain of food, fighting highly mutated food enemies, and using his gadgets to help him on the way.

Gameplay[edit]

While controlling Flint through Swallow Falls (Chewandswallow) you must use six different gadgets to help him proceed through levels. The game has five acts. In the first act each level only allows Flint to use one gadget. Act two allows Flint to switch between two, and act three and up allows Flint to use three in a level. In each level there are 30 Hydronic Foodpods. These have to be disposed with using certain gadgets.

Characters[edit]

  • Flint Lockwood --- The playable character and hero of the game, growing up misunderstood by his father because of inventing interests.
  • Sam Sparks --- A cute weather intern from New York City on whom Flint has a crush. She needs your help in the forest, the Jell-O mold, the Swallow Falls dam and the food covered town.
  • Tim Lockwood --- Flint's father who owns the bait and tackle shop.
  • Earl Devereaux --- The police officer of Swallow Falls.
