Snoopy’s Grand Adventure – Video Game Review

Snoopy's Grand Adventure

I was provided with a digital download code for the new Activision game, Snoopy’s Grand Adventure for Wii U. Andrew and I played this game together and these are our honest opinions of the game.

A few weeks ago I took Andrew to a press screening of The Peanuts Movie. A week after that I took Eva to see the Peanuts movie. We loved it and I found it funny both times. I like the 3D style of the movie, it captured the 2D style of the comic strip so well. This game also captures the spirit of the peanuts well. Here is a trailer of the game.

The gameplay is cute and fun. You take control of Snoopy as he goes to find all of the Peanuts gang. Along the way he can be joined by Woodstock (the second player). Snoopy has to gather a certain amount of jelly beans and also the whole Beagle Scouts troop.

Snoopy and the Beagle Scouts

While you play as Snoopy you can jump or climb and then do even more as you discover different outfits for Snoopy. When he is in his Beagle Scout uniform he can climb vines. When is simply Snoopy he can jump. There are some dangerous animals around and Snoopy can disable them by jumping on them. This knocks them out for a moment and then they get back up. Woodstock can also make the bad guys. So, it is perfect for all ages.
