One of the world's first detective games for kids, Snooper Troops is a great edutainment title that has truly stood 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 from a world-renowned 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 ten and above. Although you will need to carry out a standard investigation including questioning witnesses and searching the premises for clues, the game's best feature is easily the plethora of high-tech gadgets that makes things 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've unearthed.

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 off. Kids will learn to take notes, draw maps, organize information, and hone their deductive and reasoning skills. Highly recommended!
