Snoopy Coaster Will Take iOS Players On A Wild Ride
Children of the 70s and 80s are familiar with and most likely adore Peanuts, Charles Schulz's celebrated comic strip. Actually, there's a great chance you have fond memories watching The Great Pumpkin on TV during Halloween. That said, Chillingo announced a deal with Peanuts Worldwide to bring Snoopy Coaster to iPhone and iPad.
"Peanuts is the most famous comic strip in the world with its beloved characters ranging from Snoopy and Charlie Brown to Linus, Lucy and Peppermint Patty," states Ed Rumley, COO, Chillingo. "We're proud to partner with Peanuts Worldwide to bring Snoopy Coaster and all these familiar faces to iOS and introduce more fans to the fun filled world of Peanuts."
"There's something in Peanuts that everyone can relate to, and we are always looking for new ways to share the characters with future generations," explains Leigh Anne Brodsky, Managing Director of Peanuts Worldwide. "Partnering with a leading gaming publisher like Chillingo is a great step in that direction. Plus, Snoopy Coaster delivers a fantastic, fun experience for players who want the thrill ride of their lives."
From what we can tell, Snoopy Coaster is an endless runner that tasks users with guiding familiar characters via rollercoaster through loops, peaks and valleys while making use of power-ups. No screens or video just yet, but there's a good chance it'll play similar to Chillingo's own Madcoaster, which debuted last year. With this in mind, we'll have more on Snoopy Coaster in the near future.
