Continuing the company’s partnership with Sony Pictures, Diner Dash developer PlayFirst has announced Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2: Foodimal Frenzy, the official mobile game for the upcoming film, which launches in theaters later this month. The puzzle game challenges players with creating matches of “foodimals,” food animal hybrids that have taken up residence in the film’s Swallow Falls.
The game picks up where the first film left off, as inventor Lockwood, Flint, Sam, Steve and others must venture back to Swallow Falls to stop the foodimals from completely taking over the town.
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 on mobile features Barry the Strawberry, Cheesespiders, Fruit Cockatiels and more. Gameplay is level-based, and sees players tapping and dragging on matching foodimals to create matches. The game’s “blitz” style challenges players to earn as many points as possible in 60 seconds.
The game features power-ups allowing for the removal of lots of foodimals at once, or for earning more points even after the 60 seconds have expired, as examples.
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 will launch as a free download on iOS and Android on September 19. The movie itself will be released in theaters on September 27. Check back soon to track the game’s progress on AppData, our tracking service for mobile and social apps and developers.
