Snoopy Flying Ace

XBLA air combat game gets "Suppertime of Destruction" DLC pack.

SLC, UT August 25, 2010: It's been called the most realistic quadruped flight simulator ever created. It’s been hailed as the most poignant story of WWI ever told from the perspective of a beagle. It’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 – 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 “Flying Ace” 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 won’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, doesn’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

· Dirty Boy

Pigpen’s dust cloud is contagious! Infected players must spread the dirt to the opposing team. Look, we didn’t do a zombie horde defense mode on purpose, all right? This is better.

· Turret Defense

Occupy and hold both turret positions long enough to win. Is ita strategy game or a blow everybody up game? We’ve been playing it for months and we’re still not sure.

· Wild Woodstock

Capture Woodstock’s escaped bird friends and return them to their cage. They were hand-raised and won’t do well in the wild.

· Team Wild Woodstock

Round up Woodstock’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.

· Top Dogs

Each team is led by a heavily armored Ace. Bring down the opposing team’s Ace to score. Don’t blame us if you drop out of college to play this mode.

3 New Weapons

· ‘Lil Yellow

These brave little birds think you are steering them safely to new friends who will give them cupcakes. Actually, they’re going to explode.

· Thumpers

Shockwave generators that drift to earth on parachutes, thumping as they go.

· Seekers

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 – earn 50 kills in each of these “Kite Class” 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, that’s two profoundly cool new skins for every plane in the game! You’d think we didn’t have enough to do around here or something.
