"Those familiar with the Scooby Doo CD-ROM series will find
this title quite a bit different. While the gameplay featured in each of the
previous games was quite similar to the next, this one has a different format.
The graphics remain exceptional, but the game is considerably less complex and
involving. This is great news for younger fans of the show (approximately ages
6-9) who won't have to struggle with an intricate story line."
"Once all the clues have been earned, children return once
again to their logic grid with the exciting prospect of fingering the culprit.
An unmasking sequence ensues whether or not players have chosen the right
suspect. This sequence is great fun--it runs very true to the cartoon series
and it offers a reason for the crime. The program offers different clues and
culprits next time children play the game."

"By the time kids have solved
this zany mystery, they will have brain-powered their way through eight
intriguing puzzles. And the replayability is terrific, because each of the
three difficulty levels has five suspect outcomes.
"There have been three other well-done Scooby Doo titles by
The Learning Company, but this is the best one yet! This mystery is full of
wacky humor typical of the Scooby franchise. So dont be surprised if you
hear a few Zoinks or Iriuih-Irioihs as kids
laughingly uncover the identity of the elusive bug man."
