The latest DLC pack for Snoopy Flying Ace brings a squadron of new features to the XBLA aerial combat phenomenon
It’s been called the most realistic quadruped flight simulator ever created. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s been hailed as the most poignant story of WWI ever told from the perspective of a beagle. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the game that singlehandedly saved Xbox Live Arcade, insofar as XBLA was previously imperiled by the absence of this game. And now, with fans clamoring for more ways to blow each other out of the sky, we have been authorized to open the all-you-can-eat buffet of downloadable content we call Snoopy Flying Ace: Suppertime of Destruction.
Another map pack? No way, cadet Ã¢â‚¬â€œ this is the nine-fisted, fire-breathing motherlode of game content that will finally push you up the Leaderboards and give you a shot at that elite Ã¢â‚¬Å“Flying AceÃ¢â‚¬Â Achievement!
TWO incredible new aircraft: the stealthy Whirlybird copter and an Avatar-powered spy plane. Five, count ’em, FIVE new multiplayer game modes, with new Leaderboards to climb. THREE completely new weapons for your favorite plane. New costumes for all the Peanuts characters, plus THIRTY new airplane skins that totally change the look of your warbird! Could we possibly cram any more cool stuff into this game?
Here are the details:
2 New Airplanes
Whirlybird w/ Sniper Rifle weapon
Woodstock gets his own aircraft, and boy is it a game-changer. It wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t take many hits, but who needs armor when you can hover in hiding places you never knew existed on every map, zooming in on targets and sniping
them from long range?
Dragonfly w/ Jammer weapon
Your XBox Live Avatar has been a good sport in this game, parachuting from your burning plane again and again with a smile on his face, ready to jump back into the fray at your whim. He deserves a plane of his own, doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t he? With a cool new static coil weapon that can leap from target to target, draining health, stunts and turbo from opponents? Of course he does.
5 New Multiplayer Game Modes
PigpenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s dust cloud is contagious! Infected players must spread the dirt to the opposing team. Look, we didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t do a zombie horde defense mode on purpose, all right? This is better.
Occupy and hold both turret positions long enough to win. Is it a strategy game or a blow everybody up game? WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve been playing it for months and weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re still not sure.
Capture WoodstockÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s escaped bird friends and return them to their cage. They were hand?raised and wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t do well in the wild.
Team Wild Woodstock
Round up WoodstockÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s escaped bird friends before the other team does. Parenthetically, this is a work of fiction and we do not support the practice of avian midair biplane capture for sport.
Each team is led by a heavily armored Ace. Bring down the opposing teamÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Ace to score. DonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t blame us if you drop out of college to play this mode.
3 New Weapons
These brave little birds think you are steering them safely to new friends who will give them cupcakes. Actually, theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re going to explode.
Shockwave generators that drift to earth on parachutes, thumping as they go.
Magnetized balls of explodey stuff, which seem drawn to their targets somehow.
3 New Achievements
Kite Flyer (20 Points)
The two new planes in this pack offer a new achievement Ã¢â‚¬â€œ earn 50 kills in each of these Ã¢â‚¬Å“Kite ClassÃ¢â‚¬Â planes.
Bully (15 Points)
Kill a Blockhead in a Xbox LIVE player match.
Camouflage (15 Points)
Survive 5 minutes with no deaths in a Xbox LIVE player match.
11 New Pilot Costumes
For the classic Peanuts fans, each character gets a new costume drawn from Peanuts history.
30 New Plane Skins
Why, thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s two profoundly cool new skins for every plane in the game! YouÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d think we didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have enough to do around here or something.
