"...The Learning Company is promoting the games as a tool to
help "research, thinking and problem-solving skills along with logical analysis
and deductive reasoning." Who gives a heck about any of that educational stuff?
All I know is that both games are a lot of fun!"

medieval setting. As before, there are five suspectsincluding Sir
Lacksalotand a variety of clues. Plus two medieval-theme arcade
gamesone based on Simon and the other an amusing update of the classic
Tapperadd some welcome action sequences to the proceedings."
"My son Jacob and I put both of these games through the most
rigorous test imaginablecould they entertain a ten-year-old who thinks

resounding "Ruh-roh"! If you have ever wanted to insert yourself into an
episode of Scooby-Doo, then that moment has finally arrived. What more could
you ask for then new mysteries, voiced by the actual actors and animation that
is indistinguishable from the television show? How about some peanut butter and

Computing with Kids by Jinny
"Playing this mystery will expose children to seven
different thinking activities and two arcade games. The mystery has just the
right amount of spookiness, and the language and humor are true to the cartoon

play; and there are three levels of difficulty thus providing good
"The puzzles embedded in this mystery are not that
formidable, but finding them can be. Part of the fun is that this mystery
requires children to be careful detectives. While the box targets children as
young as five, the program plays best with children ages 7-10."
