You might not expect much from an old-school, side-scrolling platformer that’s tied in to the new Peanuts movie, but Snoopy’s Grand Adventure deserves a lot more credit. It puts Charlie Brown’s dog on the trail of the Peanuts gang, with each character lost in a different world of their own imagination, ranging from jungles to Aztec temples to outer space and the Paris underground.
Snoopy himself has a few tricks concealed beneath his collar, leaping high and hovering with his helicopter ears, or donning a series of costumes that give him a high-powered charge attack, vine-climbing abilities or a massive leap. You can use all of these to reconquer finished levels and find hidden members of Woodstock’s scout troop. Throw in the ability for a second player to control the yellow bird himself, activating switches that make Snoopy’s life easier, and The Peanuts Movie is a whole lot smarter than your average movie tie-in game.
At time of review The Peanuts Movie: Snoopy’s Grand Adventure Game was available for £20.
