KIDS CAN HAVE FUN LEARNING WITH THOSE UNFORGETTABLE PEANUTS CHARACTERS
 USING ACCOLADE'S NEW COMPUTER GAME, SNOOPY'S GAME CLUB
 SAN JOSE, Calif., July 14 /PRNewswire/ -- For three generations, the Peanuts(R) gang has tickled funnybones and tugged at heartstrings in newspapers, books and television specials. Now Accolade, a leading worldwide publisher of entertainment software and United Feature Syndicate, are helping children go back to school by bringing Snoopy(R) and the rest of the Peanuts gang together in Snoopy's Game Club(TM), the company's first children's entertainment software product for IBM PC and compatible computers. Snoopy's Game Club is a fun-filled collection of three imaginative games designed especially for children aged three to eight to provide hours of enjoyment, while enhancing problem solving and observation skills. It is now available at a suggested retail price of $49.95.
 Charlie Brown's Picture Pairs helps children learn the alphabet and enhance their ability to remember the locations of hidden Peanuts characters. Simply and easily, the child selects whether to match the picture tiles of the Peanuts characters or letters from the alphabet and sets the difficulty level to 8, 18 or 36 picture titles. The program is also helpful in teaching the child the alphabet, for as each letter is successfully matched, the child hears its correct pronunciation in a child's or an adult's voice.
 Snoopy's Animated Puzzles brings the Peanuts characters to life and challenges children to put together a moving puzzle. From a selection of nine different puzzles, the child scrambles the puzzle into pieces ranging from four to 64 pieces, with up to seven different piece sizes. The challenge comes in not only trying to remember what the puzzle originally looked like, but inputting the puzzle back together again while the puzzle pieces continue to animate.
 Woodstock's Look-Alikes is a wonderful way for children to have fun while enhancing their observation skills. During multiple rounds of play, children are challenged to select the two identical Peanuts characters, fish or tree leaves from up to 18 different characters on the screen. Children may play the game alone or with a friend.
 Accolade, a privately held company, is a leading developer, publisher and distributor of entertainment software for personal computers and leading video game machines.
