Based on the long-running Hanna-Barbera animated series, Scooby Doo Mystery puts you in control of the famous cartoon coward Shaggy and his faithful (but equally spineless) dog Scooby-Doo. It is your job to help this twosome find clues and objects (some of them exposed, some hidden), and talk to cartoon cohorts Freddy and Velma, working with them to decipher the clues, identify the objects, and catch villainous ghosts in the form of clowns, vampires and pirates.
Daphne is also on hand to provide Scooby Snacks for our less than intrepid heroes. These tasty morsels help keep the Frightometer clear, giving Shaggy and Scooby the courage they need to solve each mystery. Different parts of the game cannot be reached without finding certain objects or clues or solving specific puzzles.
There is very little violence in this game. Most of the action consists of running, jumping, sniffing out clues (with Scooby's nose) and using or throwing objects such as keys, lamps, fans and cameras. Along with the standard haunted house, mystery-solving action, there are a couple of bonus games you can play. In Wac-A-Monster, Shaggy hits as many ghosts and ghouls as possible as they pop up from vases. In the Scooby Sandwich Special bonus round, Scooby has to catch food items that Shaggy tosses out of the refrigerator. ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
