Ubisoft is encouraging kids to play with their food — their giant, virtual food, that is. The video game version of Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs is a 3D platform adventure that follows the plot of the 2009 Sony Pictures feature film. Players take control of ambitious inventor, Flint Lockwood, to save the world from a contraption-gone-wrong, which is causing oversized food to fall from the skies. Through 20 levels of story-driven play, Flint must explore his surroundings, search for useful parts, solve location-based platform puzzles, and even do battle against mutant food, in order to figure out how to stop his own invention (which, as it so happens, is the source of the rogue comestibles). By collecting and combining gadget parts, Flint can create devices to help him out of tight spots, as well as weapons to fling food at approaching enemies. A console-exclusive feature allows a second player to jump in and out of the game at any time, taking the role of Flint's simian sidekick. The story of Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs is from the bestselling children's book by Judi and Ron Barrett. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
