Back when I was growing up in Penang, we used to refer to kids who aren’t particularly bright as “huan chu”, which actually translate to potato in Hokkien. Well, luckily that reference does not transcend across different languages for today I am going to attempt to look like Mister Potato himself!
Lets not digress, this advertorial is about Mister Potato’s “No Compromise Game”, and what I am sharing here includes some of the tips you might find useful when playing the actual flash game on misterpotato.com.my.
The flash game consist of 8 different levels that are related in some ways how a packet of 160g Potato Crisps is created (by the way my favorite flavors are Hot & Spicy and of course, Original).
Mister Potato is made from quality imported potatoes from the best, and healthiest Atlantic, Dakota Pearl and Hermes Potatoes, so appropriately the first level of the game is related to picking and choosing good potato from the source. Good potato goes to the good basket, those with poor quality goes to the bad basket, simple? You gotta do it fast though.
Level 2 is a question, pick the right one to proceed to the next level.
Level 3 is my favorite! Chopping potato and then pushing them to the side. If you notice, there is a “Cooks” category on this blog, so naturally I think my chopping skill should be better than average joe out there whose cooking experience only involves instant noodle, but alas, the flash game is slightly different..
Level 4 and 6 are both Q&A, so make sure you have a pack of Mister Potato and scrutinize the packaging properly. Level 5 is a quality control game picking between Limp & Super Crunchy chips (this is cos every chip has to be tasty, crunchy and nice, NO COMPROMISE!). Level 7 is a mini game that requires you to memorize sequence of letters.
Which then brings us to level 8, the final stage – dressing up as Mister Potato and upload the picture online. I’ve uploaded mine, you can see it on the screen shot above, I think I should improve it a bit though. Voting period is from 29 Nov to 5 Dec, so there’s still time for me to improve on my Mister Potato imitation!
Ah, and the prizes?
