The first in a series of 'edutainment' titles long before the portmanteau term was popularized by marketing executives, Snooper Troops had younger players trying to solve the mystery of "The Granite Point Ghost", an entity that is trying to scare the Kim family out of their new home.
Using the SnoopNet computer, players will comb the streets of the neighborhood looking for clues, and investigating people's houses while they're away. Speed is of the essence, as if your Snooper Troop is caught when the owner of the house returns home, you could be thrown off the case for good!
The title encourages players to keep facts on people, map the neighborhood, review clues, receive special messages, and ultimately, find enough information to accuse and convict the criminal trying to chase the Kim family out their home.
One of these old games made in Pascal, Snooper Troops is a fun, educational detective game. The game is rather easy, making it an excelent choice for young children. The game is played through the text based interface, so called SnoopNET, which informs you about the current case, possible criminals and such. I hate that annoying beeping sound though...
One of the world's first detective games for kids, Snooper Troops is a great edutainment title that truly stands the test of time. First in a short-lived series from Tom Snyder / Spinnaker and subtitled "Case 1: The Granite Point Ghost," Snooper Troops casts you in a role of a Snooper Trooper, a world-renown private detective team. Your job is to find out who is scaring the Kim family out of their new home, and why.
Snooper Troops plays like a typical detective adventure, except that everything is simplified for kids ages 10 and above. Although you will need to carry out standard investigating techniques such as questioning witnesses and searching the premises for clues, the game's best feature is easily the plethora of high-tech gadgets that makes investigation much easier. The SnoopNet computer helps correlate information, a camera is provided for you to take Snoopshots, and a notebook automatically keeps track of all the clues you unearth during your investigation.
Kids of all ages will definitely have fun with Snooper Troops. It is immediately accessible, user-friendly, and has an interesting plot to top it all off. Kids will learn to take notes, draw maps, organize information, and hone their deductive and reasoning skills. Highly recommended!
