Snood

The dictionary defines "snood" as a net or fabric cap for the hair. That being said, it has nothing to do with snoods. I'm guessing they picked Snood as the title of the game because they thought it was a nonsense word. Anyway, what Snood is is a Bust-a-Move (or Puzzle Bobble) clone. In case you don't know what Bust-A-Move is, it's a puzzle game where you shoot colored bubbles from the bottom of the screen up to the top. If you match three or more of the same color, they disappear and points are scored (or whatever.) In fact, the game is so similar, I am surprised the makers of Bust-A-Move didn't go after Destination Software, Inc. I guess times have changed since the Atari vs. Magnavox case and neither one cared. In fact, the only difference Snood has with Bust-A-Move is that the bubbles have been replaced with anthropomorphic dots (again stealing from another company. M&Ms, Seven-Up?) I'm guessing this game was for the poor kids who blew all their money on getting the new at the time GBA and wanted a cool game but couldn't afford one.

Snood has been around since the mid-90's. The GBA version was a port of the computer version, if memory serves. Yep - it's basically a Bust-A-Move clone, but not a bad one. I suppose that the graphics are different enough to keep the copyright lawyers off their back.
