There’s another new advertising mission in Poptropica that promotes the new movie, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. To see this one, your Poptropica account age must be between 6 and 12 years old. You set the account age when you first created your account, so if you chose something older than 12 years old, you need to make a new account to play this mission. I guess they don’t want people older than 12 years old to see the movie. LOL. You can find the mission on Main Street in some of the islands. Try Time Tangled Island first. That’s where I saw it.
This is a pretty good mission. It’s short and easy to do but a lot more fun than the Bedknobs and Broomsticks mission that’s also running right now. First go inside and talk to the inventor guy in a lab coat. He’ll tell you to take a helicopter and find his on/off switch. You only have 60 seconds to get it back to him. Along the way, you’ll need to dodge falling meatballs from the sky.
The on/off switch is in the upper left corner of the town. To get up there, you need to stand on top of the giant ice cream sundae (I stood right on top of the cherry) and then do a big jump up and to the left. You’ll land on the rooftop and then you can grab the on/off switch. Then run back and you’ll sail back across the ocean (what happened to the helicopter?) and you need to avoid falling food. When you get back, talk to the lab coat guy again and you’ll get your rewards.
There are two prizes. One is a lab coat costume just like the guy you talk to has on. The other is really cool. It’s a Meatball storm. Whenever you use it, a small cloud appears over your head and dumps meatballs on you!
