March 2020 – Snoopy’s Magic Show (1990)


You puzzle platformer that has very little to do with the Peanuts(TM) and even less to do with Magic. None the less, it’s pretty fun and partially rage-inducing. It was picked by Josh Nickerson who had this to say about it.

“I’ve picked one that I remember fondly from my childhood, features beloved characters from a timeless comic strip, and is dirt cheap to pick up on the interwebs… Snoopy’s Magic Show. It’s a puzzle game that tasks Snoopy to rescue his bird friends in single screen rooms that contain bouncing balls and other traps. It’s not the most inspired use of the license, but it’s a decent time-waster.”

Josh is totally right! This game is very cheap and a good game to play while you’re waiting for your tea to steep. Did I just show how old I am?
