Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs
Think there's a chance that this is any good?
We don’t know what’s worse: the predictability of us awarding a movie tie-in game a low score, or the fact that people still make these games at all. Cloudy… is based on the film of the same name in which giant food starts terrorising the globe. While the prospect of battling giant biscuits and evil sandwiches could have led to some creative gameplay, we’re instead encumbered by a slow-paced actioner with a whiff of puzzling.
You have to run around levels (awkwardly, thanks to stylus controls) deciding which weapon to use on which rampaging foodstuff – a heat ray on ice cream, for instance. It’s not that taxing, and even though you’re collecting gem thingies to upgrade weapons, there’s very little incentive to keep going. So, er, we didn’t.
