Snoopy Coaster – All Your Favorite Peanuts Characters on the Ride of Their Lives [iOS Review]

snoopy_coaster_iconEndless running type games are a dime a dozen now in the App Store so developers constantly have to find new ways to get players to play them. Often times, many of these games are similar to others so players just skip over them without giving them a chance. That’s why they need a hook to get them to check them out whether it be a unique gameplay element, or in the case of Snoopy Coaster, a beloved character from our childhood. In Snoopy Coaster, you play as Snoopy, Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy and Peppermint Patty as they take the wildest roller coaster ride of their lives.

Graphically you’ll be happy to see that Snoopy Coaster retains the classic art style of Charles M. Schulz. That means that not only do the characters looked like they are ripped directly from his comic strips or cartoons, but the level designs and menus look like something Charles Schulz would have designed himself for the game. The same goes for the audio as well with the use of character voices that sound as if they came straight from the original cartoons.

Gameplay wise, Snoopy Coaster is very easy to jump into and very simple to play. Like most endless runners, the game only requires a few simple taps and swipes keeping things simple for casual players. All you have to do is keep the roller coaster on the tracks and your good to go. Jump over gaps, spin around on the loops, and collect as many coins and power-ups as you can and see how far you can go. Again, it’s simple stuff and very casual.

Overall, if you’re a Peanuts fan, you’ll want to download Snoopy Coaster. It’s a fun game especially if you are a fan of the endless runner genre. The only thing to make note of is that fact that Snoopy Coaster contains in-app purchases, some of which are quite costly. That means if you have children playing this game, I strongly suggest that you turn off in-app purchasing on your device to keep them from buying anything.
