Play as Shaggy or Scooby and try to defeat the Phantom Virus in Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase for PlayStation. Released to correlate with the same-titled movie, this seven-stage, multilevel adventure puts the Mystery Inc. gang in the middle of cyberspace warding off bad guys and evildoers in their attempt to locate the Phantom Virus.
From a control room players can access the areas of Japan, Ancient Rome, Arctic Circle, Prehistoric Jungle, The Big City, Egypt, and an Amusement Park. Each area consists of three levels including the boss level, but initially only the Japan area can be accessed with other areas becoming available as play progresses. Each area alternates between Shaggy and Scooby as the character being controlled.
Shaggy and Scooby encounter enemies and bosses suitable for each of the respective areas along the way, while defending themselves by collecting and flinging pies at their enemies. Bad guys include ninjas and samurais in Japan, dinosaurs and crocodiles in the Prehistoric Jungle, and juggling clowns and carrot-wielding bunnies in the Amusement Park, which is the final stage where the ultimate showdown with the Phantom Virus takes place.
Pick-ups along the way include Scooby Snacks that will earn an extra chance per 100 collected, hamburgers that increase health, the occasional extra chance token, and pies for throwing at enemies. There is also an onscreen icon resembling a telephone that acts as a communicator between Shaggy, Scooby, and the rest of the gang. When it flashes, hints and tips are given by Daphne, Velma, or Fred. ~ Jennifer Beam, All Game Guide
