Leading mobile game developer PlayFirst, in cooperation with Sony Pictures Consumer Products, today announced the release of the official mobile game for Sony Pictures Animation’s upcoming movie Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, in theaters September 27. Free for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and on Google Play™, the fast-paced arcade puzzle game features beloved characters from the film series, including brainy inventor Flint Lockwood and his lab partner Steve the Monkey, on their perilous quest through the island of Swallow Falls. Throughout the game, players encounter and rescue foodimals, food-animal hybrids, and must chain and match as many of them as possible in sixty seconds to complete goals and progress through the island.
To conquer the most challenging of objectives, players can rely on Flint’s wild and ingenious inventions such as the Celebrationator and the Foodbar Unwrapifier. As they make their way across the island, players will unlock one-of-a-kind collectibles and gain access to exciting new environments like Cheespider Lair and Pickle Village, where fans of both the film and all things adorable will be thrilled to encounter a variety of new delightfully delectable foodimals and game modes.
“The official Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 game gives fans the opportunity to visit the fun and vibrant world of Swallow Falls and interact with its memorable cast of characters both before and after seeing the movie ,” said Mark Caplan, Vice President of Consumer Products at Sony Pictures. “We’re excited to extend the experience of the movie through the game to bring families and filmgoers of all ages together.”
“With our previous collaborations with Sony Pictures on the Hotel Transylvania Dash® and The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones mobile games, we saw players continue to engage with the game long after the release of the film,” said Marco DeMiroz, CEO and president of PlayFirst. “It is important to us that the charming characters and the humorous fun of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 are expressed throughout the game, and that was the driving force behind the design.”
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 follows the success of PlayFirst and Sony Pictures’ mobile title collaborations for The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones and Hotel Transylvania Dash®. With the release of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones game, PlayFirst’s portfolio reached a milestone of over 15 million monthly active users.
