"Ghosts are haunting the Drabwell Ranch and a crazy pirate is running Deadman's Cove. It's up to Shaggy and Scooby, our fearful heroes, to get to the bottom of things and solve these two mysteries."
Scooby Doo Mysterya game by Sunsoft
ProTip: To get clue points, take new objects to Velma whenever you find them.
Hop inside the Mystery Machine with Shaggy and Scooby. You guide the pair through a series of side-scrolling mysteries, getting clues from Freddy, Scooby snacks from Daphne, and the Mystery Status from Velma. Bonus games like the "Wac-A- Monster" or "Make a Scooby Sandwich" help you.
The characters are successfully re-created, and the monsters will scare the pants off you. Although there isn't much action, the backgrounds are detailed. The sound lacks voice effects and the famous theme song, but you'll enjoy the limited soundtrack.
Reading maps and piecing together puzzles may not fulfill the action quota, but Scooby Doo does provide an intriguing adventure for kids.
- Use Scooby's sniffing abilities to find hidden items.

If you're a fan of the series, this is a nice rental down memory lane. If not, this is a "Scooby Don't."
