Description

It's The Big Game Charlie Brown is an action adventure game that teaches children about baseball.

Charlie Brown is the pitcher and manager of the team. Players will help Charlie recruit his Peanuts friends onto the team (Snoopy, Linus, Peppermint Patty, Pigpen and more) in Story Mode by solving puzzles which teach social skills. The gang will train using 10 character-specific mini-games. For instance, Lucy teaches fielding, Shroeder teaches pitching etc.

The game approaches baseball from a beginner's perspective so kids can learn everything about the game of baseball - from hitting the ball, catching and fielding to scoring runs. When the team is complete, and all of the mini-games have been finished, the team will play a full game of baseball. During the "Big Game" players can choose 6 or 9 innings to test their skill.

The game is played in point-and-click manner and features music and sound effects plus the graphics of the lovable Peanuts characters in their native cartoon atmosphere.
