Rollercoaster app with the popular Peanuts for kids
The Chillingo app publisher has just released a Rollercoaster app with Snoopy, with the name: “Snoopy Coaster”, which you can purchase for your iPad and iPhone on the App Store. It’s not a great sensation, unless you are a big Peanuts or Snoopy fan, because there are a lot of Rollercoaster game apps available for the iPad and iPhone, which are all kind of similar to one another. Even Chillingo has released a Rollercoaster app a while back, called “Madcoaster” where the gameplay is exactly like this Snoopy Coaster app.
Snoopy does however give this rather simple Rollercoaster app a certain charm, when it comes to trying to get as far as possible with his friends on the various Rollercoaster rides, trying to take as many Loopings as possible and collect many, many gold coins.
Wherever there are gold coins to be collected, in-app purchases aren’t very far off. Snoopy Coaster does therefore not set a very good example for our kids and offers a lot of purchaseable extras, outgoing links to facebook and twitter etc. You will have to be aware of this, in case you’re going to get yourself this Snoopy app for your kids.
Snoopy and his Peanuts crew say some really funny phrases whilst they are on a Rollercoaster ride! There are a lot of funny scenes and other entertaining parts in this kids app, such as, the passengers turning all green depending on how often you send them through a Looping. As soon as you’re approaching a Looping, you can navigate the Coaster on the Display to gain some extra points.
All routes are pretty diversified, for example, the Rollercoaster even goes through snowy landscapes or even creepy and scary passages by night.
Snoopy Coaster is still just another one of these Roller Coaster apps on the App Store. Chillingo has somehow missed to integrate some fresh game ideas and kind of relies on the gameplay of their other dusty roller coaster game apps. At least the price of this Snoopy Coaster app $ 0.99 is fairy cheap, of course their expecting one or two in-app purchases to get more revenue but at least it is affordable.
Chillingo has also missed out on recognising the potential of good kids apps on the market.
Instead of releasing a Snoopy app especially for kids, which would have given up on all the useless stuff, Chillingo has rather produced a regular casual game which is actually a little too easy for some players.
