Snoopy's Grand Adventure is a side-scrolling platform video game based on The Peanuts Movie. The game was published by Activision and developed by Behaviour Interactive. The game launched on November 3, 2015 in North America, and November 6, 2015 in Europe for the Nintendo 3DS, PlayStation 4, Wii U, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.

Storyline.

In Snoopy’s Grand Adventure, Snoopy explores different fantasy driven worlds in his imagination to track down Charlie Brown and his friends in a game of hide-and-seek. As he follows in their footsteps, Snoopy will acquire new magical costumes (based on his many alter egos that he has) that provide unique abilities for overcoming obstacles and reaching different levels within the game. To look for a comparison to other games one could suggest the closest title that resembles this is Rayman, another fantasy driven platformer, some close comparisons can be made, no doubt due to that game also being under the umbrella of Activision. The game is designed mainly for kids but the offer of the loveable beagle Snoopy was hard to resist, the game can be completed in 2 hours or less so those expecting a marathon of gameplay will be a little disappointed at the overall game length.

Some of the fantasy driven levels include various jungles, scaling underwater areas, the actual scenery is largely based on the official The Peanuts Movie and large areas have been adopted into the overall makeup of the game, including the friends you are seeking to find. During your quest to find your friends you will be able to locate hidden collectables, collect items for additional abilities, and find the hidden Beagle Scouts to unlock special surprises. All this is driven and inspired from the movie.

As you move through the different levels you will be able to swim, fly, run jump to reach new levels and unlock various abilities and outfits. All of these aid the loveable Snoopy to move forward in the search for his friends. Being a platformer you will bounce, jump on platforms, swing from tree ropes, amongst others in this adventure movie driven game. As you move through these levels you will encounter various bosses which you will have to defeat in order to save your friends, once complete then you move on to the next level, almost in the same fashion seen in Rayman series. Snoopy has a health meter and when attacked he loses a heart, if the player is fast enough they can grab it back, almost like you see in the Mario games with the coins.

In order for Snoopy to access certain areas in each level, he must find a key that will unlock a special power. There are treasure chests scattered throughout each level and by pushing the square button the chest will open and new special powers can be obtained. These vary from level to level, there is an option to replay a level should you wish.

Co-Op Mode.

The player plays as Snoopy and can play as Woodstock at the same time in co-op mode to help find Charlie Brown, this adds to the overall experience and often you can use one player to distract foes whilst the other player grabs the goodies, all new hidden collectables and paths can be taken in this Co-Op Mode.

Overall.

Snoopy's Grand Adventure is a fun title for those that like The Peanuts Movie or games like Rayman, this platformer may not appeal to all as the overall adventure is short, it begs the question as to why they made it this way, a more sensible price tag is warranted on this game. A good game yes, graphics are well presented, overall a little short which results in a bitter aftertaste after all said and done.
