Chillingo To Release 'Peanuts' Endless Running Game Called Snoopy Coaster
For my money, Chillingo is one of the best iOS game publishers around. Also for my money (and I bet others' as well), Charles M. Schulz's "Peanuts" is one of the best comic strips ever. Having said that, I'm delighted to report that the former is set to release an iOS game based on the latter. That's right: Chillingo, the publisher behind such popular games as Angry Birds, Cut the Rope, and Contre Jour, is going to launch an officially licensed "Peanuts" game on iOS. And the game is going to be called Snoopy Coaster. As its title suggests, it's going to feature the comic strip's world-famous beagle front and center. "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," says Leigh Anne Brodsky, Managing Director of Peanuts Worldwide, the licensor of the "Peanuts" brand. "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." Snoopy Coaster is said to be an endless runner starring Snoopy and the rest of the "Peanuts" gang. Specifically, it's an endless coaster where you help Snoopy and his friends on a roller coaster ride filled with coins, power-ups, and unlockables. I'm guessing it's going to be in the style of Madcoaster, which is also published by Chillingo. In any case, I'm excited to play Snoopy Coaster, which is set to be released later this month.
