Snoopy and the Red Baron © 1983 Atari, Incorporated.

The dastardly Red Baron has stolen important food supplies from the allies during the war. Hamburgers, ice cream cones, popcorn and other tasty treats have been taken by this evil aviator and sharpshooter. Your task is to help Snoopy shoot down the Red Baron and recover the stolen supplies.

You begin your mission with four doghouses. It takes eight direct hits to bring down the Red Baron, and for the Red baron to bring down Snoopy's doghouse. If the Red Baron downs a doghouse, all accumulated treats will be lost. Press the controller button to fire Snoopy's machine gun.

Note: Snoopy cannot fly above the clouds.

To catch a stolen treat: Keep an eye on the Red Baron when he drops a tasty morsel from his tri-plane. Recover the falling treat by touching it with Snoopy's doghouse. But watch out! The Red Baron can also drop skull and crossbones, and if you catch one, you lose all of the treats you've collected.

If you manage to shoot down all the Red Barons in the round and collect all the treats, bonus points are added to your score. Press the controller button to begin the next round.

Before you press GAME RESET, you can play a practice game without scoring points, and without being shot down.
