Poor little Linus has had to hide his security blanket from his horrible auntie who wants the grubby cloth relegated to the dustbin. The only problem is he hid it at Charlie Brown’s house and Charlie has managed to lose it. It is your job, as either Charlie or his older sister Lucy, to find it. As always, Snoopy offers no help. In fact, the only way to get him involved is by offering him treats — from sunglasses to a magician’s hat — which you will find scattered around the house.
Keep your eyes peeled, because objects are hidden in the weirdest places — remember to check every nook and cranny. When you are able to open or pick up something, the arrow icon will turn into a fist, which you simply click. Pick up certain objects and you have a gateway to the outside world.
There are puzzles to work out, which have settings from easy to difficult. My favourite tasks were the Great Houdini’s magic show, where you have to ‘rearrange’ one of Snoopy’s victims, and finding books in the library. Remember to use the objects you’ve picked up along the way, as without a disguise Snoopy can’t get into the library. Although, in true Superman style, a pair of cool shades is all he needs to fool the librarian.
Snoopy was always my favourite, which probably makes me a little biased in my praise for this game. Not only is this like stepping into the comic strip, it’s also very funny and really entertaining, with just the right levels of narration and interaction.
