Cute kids game but beware the ads!

If you’re a fan of Peanuts, then Snoopy’s Town is for you and your kids. However, be aware there are a lot of ads and not all of the ads are kid-friendly (e.g., an ad for “My Fantasy” shows a maid in a skimpy outfit and a woman in a revealing dress clearly intent on having a fantasy with her). I don’t believe there’s a way to disable these ads.

Some games have deep plots, complex controls, and require a lot of constant attention. Then there are games like Snoopy's Town Tale, which are quick little escapes that can be enjoyed in bite-sized chunks. There's also a sense of accomplishment as, over time, what started as a small empty plot of land eventually becomes a bustling hub of activity. There's also a great sense of wholesome nostalgia as you watch the characters in your town interact with one another or even just go about their day. Being able to call up an impromptu dance show at any given moment, with Schroeder at his piano and Snoopy doing his happy dance, is a perfect example of having a smile just a few taps away. It's like carrying a Peanuts-themed Zen garden in your pocket.

While Snoopy's Town Tale is simple fun, it can still be a bit frustrating at times. Being a free-to-play game, microtransactions are to be expected. But the game pushes these transactions hard with constant pop-ups offering a variety of "special deals." Even spending money on the game doesn't reduce the frequency of these pop-ups at all. There are also items, such as a billboard, that seem like any other resource but instead trigger full video advertisements for unrelated TV shows, apps, etc. for a paltry scrap of in-game currency. These sorts of ads are invasive and annoying, but don't take too much away from the rest of the Peanuts fun.

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
