Does anyone know where to find the Snoopy Red Baron Math Game form the 80's?

 

My dad had us equipped with a Commodore 64 & Commodore Vic-20 as we were growing up & I remember playing that math game.

Do they still have it around?

A rewrite maybe?

Conversion?

 

Any suggestions on other math games?

 

Those systems were relics by the time I even played the game. 

Oh, how I miss Frogger!

Your best option is probably eBay, and they won't be cheap if this is any example: Vintage-1984-Snoopy-Math-amp-Game-Watch-Alarm-Clock-Calculator-Canon-M-10-RARE-HTF

Nope. That's not it. I searched & that's one of the things I found. What I'm talking about isn't a stand alone, hand held device.  It is an actual computer game for PC. One of the first, I guess. I know it's far fetched to try & find it but thought I would throw it out there. Thank you.

According to the Wikipedia list of Commodore 64 games there is only one Snoopy game listed and it's not including Red Baron. So I have no clue if the Snoopy game is math based.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Commodore_64_games

As for the Snoopy Game, I found a ROM of it.

Maybe you can find other math based games there?

Bummer. None of those are it. I have found some people talking about it but no leads to anything else. I can't believe it's not listed on Wikipedia.

I appreciate your help.

Holy cats! 

So let's see if we're talking about the same game:

 

-It featured Snoopy in his flying outfit on top of his dog house. 

-You were given various problems that you had to solve in a certain amount of time, otherwise you ended up with a hole blasted in the dog house - if you were blasted too often, you crashed. 

-This game taught me how to use a number line as well as how to solve problems featuring negative numbers (which was awesome because I think I was maybe 7 or 8 when I played it). 

 

Sound about right? :)

Wow! That's it! Holy cow. I don't remember it being so basic but that is it. It was awesome!

Thanks Potokat!
