About Scooby Doo Games
Created in 1969, Scooby-Doo began as an America animated cartoon franchise, with many animated television series that still run even today. Building on the popularity of this animated dog and his companions developers released a variety of Scooby Doo games. The earliest release came in 1983 with Scooby-Doo’s Maze Chase for the Intellivision video game system. Game play was similar to that of Pac-Man, and required the player to control Scooby as he chases ghosts through a maze while he is chased by the skull & crossbones. If the ghosts are caught in the time limit, the skull and crossbones disappear, and a submarine sandwich appears which when consumed gives the player a magic bone that can be used to momentarily freeze the skull and crossbones in place. Next in line came the Scooby-Doo and Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo video games, released in 1986 and 1991. Both were available for the Commodore 64 computer, with the first available also in arcade and ZX Spectrum versions as well. The game with Scrappy was also available for the Amiga. Then in 1995 came Scooby-Doo Mystery for the Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis video game consoles. In 1999 gamers saw the release of the first games for the PC with Scooby Doo! Mystery of the Fun Park Phantom, and Scooby Doo! Mystery Adventures, with the next PC game not released until 2003 with Scooby-Doo Case Files. In the interim Scooby Doo! Classic Creep Caper was released for the Nintendo 64 and Game Boy colour, along with Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase for PlayStation and Game Boy Advance. A self-titled game based on the 2002 film was released the same year for the Game Boy Advance as well. The saga of games still continues with Scooby-Doo! And the Spooky Swap released in 2010 for the Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS, and PlayStation 2. There are also websites that offer video games based on this very popular cartoon dog, ensuring fans of the show can get hours of enjoyment out of their favourite pooch for years to come.
