What's it about?
In SNOOPY POP, the titular beagle and his BFF Woodstock build a bubble machine out of a lawnmower. But when Woodstock's bird pals -- who we assume are named Altamont, Lilith Fair, and Ozzfest -- get caught in the bubbles, you have to pop them before these bird brains float away.
Is it any good?
Though it's fairly typical for this kind of game, this simple physics puzzle game is still engaging for fans of both the genre and the comic strip that inspired it. Like Bubble Witch Saga, Smurfs Bubble Story, and other similar games, Snoopy Pop has you tossing colored bubbles into the air in hopes they'll hit bubbles of the same color, causing all of them to pop, before you run out of tossing bubbles. The objective is to pop the bubbles that hold Woodstock's bird pals, who are clearly unable to pop these bubbles themselves due to their rounded beaks. But while this does largely play like those other games, such as how you can bank shots off the sides, it does have some unique mechanics. For instance, if you pop some bubbles with a kite icon inside, you can ask Charlie Brown to hand you a crumpled-up kite that, when thrown, will pop any and all bubbles in a kite-shaped area. Still, it's hard not to wish they'd done more of that kind of stuff. Or that they had made this feel more Peanuts-y (though, in their defense, we're not sure how they could; after all, the Smurfs one wasn't all that Smurfy). Even so, if you're a fan of this kind of puzzle game, or love Peanuts so much that you own all 25 volumes of The Complete Peanuts, you'll have fun with Snoopy Pop.
Talk to your kids about ...
Families can talk about how marketing games can influence people. Playing this game might make you want a Snoopy toy or T-shirt, but do you think that could be why they made this game?
Talk about planning ahead and thinking things through. What does this game teach us about thinking about what to do next before doing it?
Discuss money management. While spending some money on this game will help the developers to make more games like it, does it make sense to spend your entire allowance on it every week for six months?
