Credits ++++++++++++++++++ ++ Introduction ++ ++++++++++++++++++ I was playing Scooby Doo Mysteries for the Super Nintendo, when I got stuck on the second level, the Fun Fair. I just couldn't seem to find any new clues that would help me solve the mystery and I was at the end of my rope. So I decided to find a walkthrough on the net. And guess what? There was none. Being the same guy who wrote some FAQs for relatively FAQ-less games like WCW Nitro and TMNT: The Manhattan Missions, I decided to take it upon myself to write one up for this cool game. I would eventually complete the level and the whole game. So here are step-by-step walkthroughs to all four mysteries, as well as some other tips. Enjoy! +++++++++++ ++ Story ++ +++++++++++ For Fred, Daphne, Velma, Shaggy and their dog Scooby Doo, the mysteries never end. Even on vacation, they can't help but run into their share of mysteries. Ever the budding detectives, the gang runs into several new mysteries that are just waiting to be solved by them. ++++++++++++++++ ++ Characters ++ ++++++++++++++++ Fred - the unofficial leader of the group, this blonde actually has some brains between his ears. He helps devise the traps that help the gang catch the villains. Daphne - this amiable redhead gives Shaggy and Scooby some Scooby snacks as a reward. Velma - this intelligent, up and coming mystery solver helps Shaggy and Scooby sort out the items they find. Using clues that the duo find, she helps shed some light on the mystery. Shaggy - this easy-going, laid-back toadie loves eating and has a special affinity for huge sandwiches. He tries to help the gang solve mysteries whenever he can, but he's often too chicken to be of any help. Scooby - man's best friend is smarter than the average bea.. err.. dog. Using his super-sniffer, he helps Shaggy root out clues and just like his friend Shaggy, he loves eating and is a noted coward. ++++++++++++++ ++ Gameplay ++ ++++++++++++++ In Scooby Doo Mysteries, you take control of the spaced-out Shaggy and his best friend, the lovable dog Scooby Doo. You help Shaggy assist Freddy and company in solving mysteries. By exploring areas and through the use of Scooby's super sense of smell, you find and sniff out clues that will help the gang solve the mystery. Of course, the problem is that Shaggy and Scooby are easily scared. If you get close to enemies or get ambushed by any of the creepy monsters in the area, Shaggy and Scooby's fright meter starts to fill. Once it's completely filled, Shaggy and Scooby will totally chicken out and they'll lose one of their lives. Eating a Scooby snack will deplete the fright meter a little bit, but you have to find snacks or get them from Daphne, who gives one to you sometimes. +++++++++++++++ ++ Mysteries ++ +++++++++++++++ Mystery 1: The Ghost Ship ------------------------- The gang has decided to take a vacation from their vacation and taken time out to solve the mystery of the Red Ryan, a supposedly haunted ghost ship. They hope to at least find treasure, if not find out if the ghosts of the Ryan are real, or just the stuff of legend. At first, Shaggy and Scooby are apprehensive about exploring the wreck of the Ryan, but after being bribed with the promise of a Scooby snack by Daphne, the pair decide to help their friends solve the mystery. This level is more like a tutorial than anything else. Here, you get to test out the game's controls and get a feel for them. The game and the gang will help you through the mystery, making the mystery a breeze to solve. There are some tricky parts though. Those are what this walkthrough is for. Walkthrough. After you get to talk to the gang, walk to your right. A ghost pirate will appear and frighten Scooby and Shaggy a bit. Your fright meter will go up a bit. There's no way to avoid this. Enter the top door marked "Deck 1". In this room, walk to the left to Daphne. Daphne will talk to you and give you a Scooby Snack. Pick up the trunk near the wall by going in front of it and pressing "Up". Exit the room the same way you came in. Back in the starting room, enter the door on the bottom of the screen. In this room, walk left till you see Velma. She'll talk to you. Now, with the chest you just picked up selected (press "select" if you didn't choose it already), press "R" to talk to Velma. She'll examine the chest and you'll find out that the treasure inside it has been corroded by sea water. Pick up the trolley to the left. Exit the room using the same door you used to come in. Back in the starting room, walk to the right. The pirate will appear. Follow Freddy's advice and bowl the pirate over with the trolley. With the object selected, press "A" to knock the pirate for a loop. As Fred will tell you, the pirate fell out of the room and opened up the door to the right. Exit using the newly opened door. In this room, pick up the trolley you just used and enter the top door. Go to the far left and stand in front of the "Search Here" text. Hm... "Search Here". I wonder what that could mean? Use Scooby's super-sniffer to search. Press "X" to make Scoob sniff for clues. Lo and behold, you've found a map! Pick it up. Now go to the far right until you reach the door. Exit using this door. In this room, you will find Daphne waiting for you. Talk to her for a Scooby snack. Go to the right and stand in front of the light-brown crate. Pick it up. Exit through the same door on the left. Back in this room, exit using the door on the bottom that you originally used to enter this room. In this room you'll now find Freddy waiting for you. You could enter the door to the right to get a Scooby snack, but you'll have to jump over the fast mice to snatch it. Unless you really need the snack, select the map and exit to your left. Freddy will advise you to show the map to Velma before you leave. Follow Freddy's advice and show the map to Velma on this, your starting screen. Talk to her and you'll discover that the map shows the caves that smugglers use. Go to the far left and enter the door there. You should now be outside. Note that there will be a bunch of brown moving platforms in this area. The green ones are part of the ship and are stationary Go to the left and jump on the crates. Stand in front of the text that tells you to place "crate here" and use the crate. You should drop the crate. Now jump on it. On top of the crate, jump onto the moving platform to the right. Ride it as far as it takes you up, then jump onto the above platform. Jump to the platform on the top and pick up the fish. Now jump to the platform on the right. Go near the right edge of the platform and jump onto the brown platform on the right. Quick tip: Use the fish as a weapon to dispatch enemies! It will start moving. When it goes as far as it will go, jump onto the green platform directly to the right of it. Now jump onto the next brown platform to the right. This platform will move from left to right. When the platform goes as far to the right as it will go, jump to the right. You'll land on a green platform. Go right and jump onto the diagonally moving platform. Hit the mouse with a fish while you're on the platform so you don't fill your fright meter. Jump onto the green platform where the mouse was and move to the edge. Wait for a diagonally moving platform to appear, then jump on it. Ride it as far as it will go until it starts to come back. Now jump onto the green platform to the right. Move to the right and mount the moving platform that is going up and down. Once the last platform reaches the deck, jump off. Go the right until you can go no further. Jump on the crates and make your way up by jumping. At the top of crates, you'll see a teddy bear. Jump to it and pick it up. Quick tip: Here on the far right on the ship deck, there's a scooby snack waiting to be collected on top of one of the masts. Now retrace your steps and make your way back to the entrance to the boat. You should now be back on the screen where you started the level. Show the teddy bear to Velma. It turns out that it is a pirate teddy. She'll find a key hidden inside. Go to the right. Take Fred's advice and use the key on the locked door. Exit the starting screen by using the door on the right. In this room, enter the door on top. In this room, select the blue key and enter the top door. You will enter Deck 2. Velma and Daphne will follow. In the first room on Deck 2, there's an enemy bird to the right. Hit it with a fish or jump over it. Exit using the door on the right. In this room, there's a rat. Follow it while it walks right, but don't get too close to it. When it begins walking left, jump over it. Pick up the eyepatch here on the far right of the room. You can also try to hit this rat with a fish. Exit using the bottom door to the left of the room. In the next room, Daphne is waiting for you. Talk to her for a Scooby snack. Go to the left. Pick up the bucket. Now go to the right. Freddy waits for you near the door on the right of this area. He'll tell you to use the bucket to cover up the rat in the next room because Daphne hates rats. Exit using this right door. In this room, there's a really hyper rat. To take care of him, first move up to the barrel on the right. Once you're close to it, use the bucket to throw it at the green rat. It should cover him. Move to the right and jump over the next barrel. Don't worry, the rat can't hurt you while he's under the bucket, even though he can still move around. Collect the key to the right of the barrel. With the key selected, exit using the right door. Velma waits for you in this room. Show Velma the eye patch. She discovers that the eye patch has a hole in it. A real pirate ghost wouldn't need a hole in his eye patch. Move to the right and hit the bird with a fish. Exit using the top door. Fred waits for you in this room. Walk to the left and pick up the lantern. Exit using the door on the left. *BONUS GAME - SANDWICHES* After the bonus stage, go to the left and pick up the soap. Exit to the right. Back in the room with Fred in it, exit using the bottom door. Back in the room with Velma in it, exit using the right door. Daphne is in this room. She asks you to clean up the mess on the floor. Move to the right. One-eyed Matt the pirate ghost will appear yet again. Follow Daphne's advice and throw the soap at him. Select the soap if it isn't already selected and use it to throw it at the the pirate. He will slip and fall, opening the door on the right in the process. Exit using this newly opened door on the right. *BONUS GAME - WHACK A MONSTER* Fred will follow you into this room. Exit using the bottom door. In this room, pick up the piece of paper you see on the right. Exit using the door on the left. Velma is in this area. Show her the paper you just found. It seems that the paper details robberies of shipwrecks that have happened recently. Go to the left and pick up the TNT. Exit using the door on top. Daphne is in this room. Talk to her for a Scooby snack. Pick up the matches on the left (use any extra Scooby snacks to make room in your inventory if you can't carry any more) Exit to the door on the right. Back in this room, exit to the door on the bottom. You're back in the room with Freddy. Talk to him and he'll tell you that you can open a locked door using the tnt and matches you just found. Follow him to the locked door. Once you get to the locked door, Freddy will blow it open by himself. Follow him and enter the newly unlocked door. In this room, exit to the left. Velma is in this room. Go to the left and pick up the generator. Exit using the top door. Daphne is in this room. Ask her for a Scooby snack (if you need one.) Be sure to pick up the hose in this room (use any extra Scooby snacks to make room in your inventory if you can't carry any more). There's a rug to the right, but you can't pick it up yet. Exit using the same door you used to come in. Back in the room with Velma, exit using the door on the right. Go to the right and talk to Freddy until he uses the generator and the hose to open the door for you. In this room, go to the right and exit using the bottom door. This room is dark, but you should be able to see with the lantern that Scooby is holding for you. Go to the left and pick up the blue key. Daphne will give you a Scooby snack if you need one. Exit using the top door that you used to get into this room. Back in this room, select your newly found blue key and enter the red structure through its metal door. Inside the storage hold, exit using the left door. This room is a dark storage room. Pick up the gold on the left. Now double back and exit the storage structure. Outside the storage structure, show the gold bar to Velma who is in this area. It seems that the gold is still warm, like somebody was trying to melt it. Then Velma will tell you that the mystery is almost solved and to talk to Fred. Exit to the left. Talk to Fred. He will devise a trap to catch the "ghost". The trap needs the pirate trolley, the teddy bear and the rug. You should have all the needed items but the rug. Exit to the left. In this room, exit using the top door. This room has the rug in it. Move to the right and pick up the rug. Now doubleback and see Fred. Talk to Fred several times until he's done making the trap. Now you have to bait the "ghost". Scooby and Shaggy will be reluctant at first, but Daphne will bribe them with a Scooby snack. Now exit to the left. In this room, move all the way to the left. One-eyed Matt will appear. He might catch you at first, but if you have a mostly empty fright meter, you will not lose a life. Now run to the right and exit using the door. Daphne will hit the lights and when they come on again, you will see tha the trap worked and One-eyed Matt is caught! Epilogue. The "ghost" was really Captain Porter in disguise. He wanted to take the gold treasure, melt it down and sell it. Porter didn't want to see the gold be in the museum and was going to profit from it. And he would've gotten away with it, if it wasn't for those meddling kids and their dog too! Mystery 2: The Fun Fair ----------------------- After solving the mystery of the Red Ryan, the gang decides it's time for some well-deserved R&R. They decide to go to the Fun Fair. They head over to the Bing Bong Brothers' Fun Fair and Scooby and Shaggy look forward to stuffing their faces with food. When they arrive, they discover that all the rides are closed. They see a sign that says the Fun Fair is closed due to a ghost. Being the brave souls they are, the gang decides to investigate this supposed "ghost". This level is MUCH harder than the first one. You won't be given as many hints as you were in the first stage and you will need to use your head a lot more. The clues are more hidden and the enemies harder to avoid. As far as I know, the wolf and the evil clown are not defeatable baddies here. Just walk/run away from the wolf; he'll disappear eventually. Most times you can run and jump over the clown pretty easily. The hammer and coconuts can be used to beat the unicycles and rats here. Walkthrough. When you start the level, you will be in a small area with a locked tent to your right. You can't enter it yet. The gang will talk a while about the mystery and then leave to investigate. After they're gone, pick up the coconut to your left. This could be a handy weapon. Exit using the top entranceway. You're in the part of fun fair with an ice cream truck in it. Move to your left and have Scooby sniff the grass by the fence. You'll find a manual on how to improve your strength. Move to the right. By the ice cream truck, you'll see the ghost clown. He'll frighten Scooby and Shaggy a bit and tell them to leave the fun fair before disappearing. Pick up the bell near the truck. Go to the far right of this area until you reach the fence. There's an oil can here, but you don't need it yet. Exit using the entrance by the fence here. This part of the fun fair has a strength testing attraction. Daphne is here. Talk to her for a Scooby snack. Pick up the hammer to the left. Now go near the strength testing machine and use the bell. Then use the hammer on the machine. Thanks to that strength improving manual, you will be able to hit the bell up high. After this happens, a key drops from the machine. Pick it up. Follow Daphne's advice and talk to Freddy. Exit this area the same way you came in. Back on this screen, go left to Freddy. He will compliment you and say that you can now investigate more of the fun fair. Now go left and exit using the top entrance by the ice cream truck. Here you will find one of those crane games called the "Claw". Exit using the entrance near the machine. In this area, move to the right. The evil clown will appear. After talking for a bit, he will start to chase you. Be calm and move to the left to make some distance between you and him. Now run to the right and jump over him. If you do it right, you will not get caught by the clown and you'll save your fright meter from getting filled. Quickly proceed to your right and jump onto the mat under the blue pipe. Now jump, and while you're jumping hold the jump button (B). You should bounce off the mat and onto the pipe above. Collect the lamp. Now walk off the pipe. Once off the pipe, go to the far right until you come to a can of oil. Pick it up. Now select the key you found earlier and enter the nearby trailer. *BONUS GAME - SANDWICHES* After the bonus game, you'll find yourself in a dark trailer. Use Scooby's sniffer and walk to your right. You should find a key. Pick it up. Beware the wolf monster to the right. Now walk to the right and pick up the newspaper. Then exit the trailer via the door on the left. You're back outside the trailer. Now proceed to the far left until you see Daphne. Talk to her for a Scooby snack. Exit using the nearby bottom entrance. You're back near the crane game. Select the paper, then walk to the right. Talk to Velma. The newspaper says that the fun fair was closing due to failing attendance. Who would want to close the fun fair? Now walk to the right and beware of the wolf monster. Enter the blue and orange tent by pressing "Up". Inside this dark tent, use Scooby's super sniffer and move to your left. You will find a coin. Now exit the tent. Outside again, walk to your left. Be careful, a wolf monster might appear. Walk in front of the "Claw" game and use the coin you just found. You will win a doll. You should pick up the doll and Velma will come to talk to you. She will find a pass inside, then she will tell you to show the pass to Freddy before exiting. Follow her out. You're in the area with the ice cream truck. Now walk up to Freddy. He will compliment you and tell you the pass will allow you to explore more of the fun fair. Go to the far right until you get to the oil can. Pick it up. The lantern will burn brighter now. Go back to the left until you're in front of the "Win-A-Fish" game. Now exit using the bottom entrance near the game. Velma is here. Go to right, but beware of the wolf and the unicycle. Enter the white tent. In the dark tent, move and let Scooby sniff to the right. You'll find a clown mask. Pick it up. Exit the tent. Back outside, go to the left. Select the clown mask and talk to Velma. It's a clue. No go to the right and be wary of the unicycle and the wolf. When you get to the blue and orange tent, enter it. Daphne is in the tent. Talk to her for a Scooby snack. Pick up the clown boots to the left. Exit the tent. Back outside, head to the left to Velma again. With the clown shoes selected, talk to her again. It seems that the shoes are covered in ice cream. Velma deduces that the clown must hide in the ice cream truck. What would the clown need with a spare mask. Exit using the nearby bottom entrance. Here there's a unicycle. Hit it with your hammer. Go to the right until you see Fred. The door on the bottom is locked. Enter the doorway to the slide. This is the slide section. You have to slide down the slide, but be careful, there are dangerous spikes on this slide. When you see an arrow pointing up, that means that spikes are coming up the slide. Get ready to jump over any number of spikes. When you see an arrow point down, the spikes will pass you overhead, so stay on the slide. Be careful because every time you get hit by a spike, your fright meter fills up. This section is easy and you should be able to pass it without any trouble. You will exit once you've jumped over all the spikes and have hit the exit sign. Quick tip: When you see the first exit sign, jump over it. You will find a secret cache of Scooby snacks that pass by overhead. Jump up to collect them and deplete your fright meter. After you successfully brave the slide, you will find a key. Pick it up. Select this blue key and exit using the locked bottom door. There are rats to the left, so be careful. Hit them with your hammer or some coconuts to dispatch them. Collect the oil near the purple and orange tent. The lantern will burn even brighter now. Go left near the fence. Use the nearby top door. In this section, there's a unicycle to the left. You can hit it with your hammer for some more mystery points. Select the grey key and stand in front of the door to truck. Press "Up" to open the door. Go to the right and jump on top of the crates. The jump onto the platform moving left and right to your right. Jump on the crates that the platform takes you to (they're to the right). Wait for another horizontally moving platform. Jump on it. Ride it to the right and jump on the green stationary platform it brings you to. Wait for yet another horizontally moving platform. Mount it. It should take you to some crates. Jump on them. Walk off the crate and to your left. Pick up the bottle-like object you see. This is the first item you must get. Now jump back onto the crate on the right and mount the platform that you rode to it. Jump on the green platform it takes you to. Then go and jump back to the green platform on the left. Wait for the horizontally moving platform and jump onto it. Ride it to the left and jump on the crates it brings you to. You should see some brown crates in the foreground. To the right of these crates is a stack of green crates. Jump up onto them and jump onto the one on top. Then jump onto the green platform to the left. There's another green platform to the left of this one. Jump on it. Jump up onto the green platforms on left of this platform until you reach the top. There's some crates with a mouse moving on them. Dispatch him using the hammer or a coconuts. Jump onto the crates. Walk to the right and off the crates. Move right and off the green platform you landed on. You'll land on another platform. Wait for the moving platform on the right and jump on it. Ride it to the right as far as it will go, and then fall off of it onto the green platform below. Run and jump off the edge of this platform to the green platform to the right. Then run and jump off the edge of this platform to the on the right. Go to the right of this third platform and wait for vertical platform to your right. Ride it to the top and jump onto the crates to the right. Jump onto the top crate and wait for the vertically moving platform. Ride it down to the floor, then fall off of it. Collect the magnet and then exit out the doorway that says "Way Out". When you go out, you'll be at the starting screen, where Fred waits for you. Go up to Fred, and he'll tell you that he can use the welding tools you found to open the lock to the tent. Exit to the newly opened tent on the right. This room has a cannon in it. You'll need it later. Just walk to the right and enter the top doorway. *BONUS GAME - WHACK A MONSTER* After the game, you'll be in a room full of lockers. There's a cannonball here that you'll need later. Now just exit using the bottom door. Back in the cannon room, exit using the bottom doorway. You'll be in a room with a shooting game in it. There's some gunpowder and a rat to the right. You'll need the gunpowder, but not now. Also beware the wolf here. Move to your left. Let Scooby sniff in front of the tent. You'll find a clown nose. Collect the clown nose, then talk to Velma about it. Exit using the bottom door. You'll be outside the tent and near some painting. There's a unicycle and some glue to the right. You don't need the glue just yet. Daphne is here and will give you a Scooby snack if you talk to her. Exit using the bottom door. Here, there are matches to the left by the mouse and near the fence. Hit the mouse with the hammer. You don't need the matches yet. Proceed to the right. You'll see the evil clown. Again, move to the left to make some room, then run and jump over him and to the right. Let Scooby sniff in front of the blue tree. You'll find a piece of paper. Collect it. Now, go back to your left. Run and jump over the clown if necessary. Exit the way you came in. Back in the area with the painting, exit using the top door. Back in the big top, walk left. Again, beware of the wolf. Talk to Velma. It turns out that fun fair's janitor was fired for putting people's lives in danger. Great clue. Velma will give you a key. Now go back and exit using the bottom doorway. Outside the tent, exit using the bottom doorway. Back near the matches, proceed to the far right. There's a unicycle here. Hit it with your hammer. Exit using the top door on the right. In this area, go right. Select the key Velma gave you and enter the trailer. In this trailer, go right and get the clown costume. Exit. Velma is waiting for you outside. With this clown costume, which is just like the one the evil clown is using, you're able to solve the mystery. Fred will give you the plans for the trap. You'll need glue, matches, a cannon ball and gunpowder to build the trap. Exit using the bottom exit. In this area, proceed to the left until you get to the mouse near the the pack of matches. Hit the mouse with the hammer. Pick up the matches. Exit using the nearby top door. You're near the painting again. Proceed to the right. Use a coconut to get the unicycle out of the way. Pick up the glue and exit using the top door. Inside the big top, go right. Use the hammer on the mouse and pick up the gunpowder. Exit using the top door. Back in the cannon room, exit using the top door. Pick up the cannonball in this room and exit. Now you can build Freddy's trap. Talk to Freddy if you want to see the plan. The clown is running around to your left. Jump onto the top brown platform to the left of the cannon. When the clown comes running toward you, you have to jump off the platform to the left. Walk over the "X" and use the glue. The clown will run towards you and get stuck onto the glue. Go to the right then mount the top platform again. Stand on the left edge and use the gunpowder and then the cannonball. You will throw them into the cannon. Jump off the platform and move left to the end of the gunpowder trail. Use the matches. Shaggy will light the gunpowder and the cannonball will be fired onto the clown's head. Epilogue. The evil clown wasn't a ghost after all. It was Bubba's old janitor, Mickey Mindang. He says the fun fair is in his blood and that his grandfather died trying to save his job. His nephew helped him in his scheme to close the fun fair, then buy it at a lowered price. And he would've gotten away with it, if it wasn't for those meddling kids and their dog too! Mystery 3: Spooky Swamp After the gang solves the mystery at the fun fair, they take a drive to the lake. However, Freddy gets lost and instead they arrive in a scary swamp. Soon, they are chased by a scary swamp creature. Freddy speeds up and stops. They soon come upon an old man, who tells them that they are on his land and that they can't stay. It seems that there's a rich man named Dean Drabwell who has been buying up all the land around here, and that this old man won't give up his land. They ask the old man about the swamp creature, but he seems to know about as much as them. Ever curious, the gang decides to investigate and find out who or what is behind this swamp thing. This level is a little harder than the circus level in some respects. The monsters are faster and you'll need to run away from them pretty quickly. In this level, the monsters are a zombie and the swamp creature. Just as the evil clown and the wolf from the fun fair, you can't beat them. When you see the zombie, just run the other way quickly and exit. Hopefully when you reenter the screen, the thing will be gone. Don't worry too much because these monsters don't respawn after they vanish like the wolf in the circus. Walkthrough. After Fred has a brief conference with you, walk to the right. You'll see the swamp monster and he'll frighten you before he disappears. After he disappears, sniff to your right and you'll find a pair of boots to the left of the white post. Go to the right and Freddy will talk to you. He'll talk to you about the general store being abandoned. Exit to the right after the fence ends by pressing down. Quick tip: There's a Scooby snack hidden on this, the screen where you find the boot. Hop onto the platform to the right and ride it to the top. Then jump left onto the roof and let Scooby sniff near the left edge of it. You'll find a tasty Scooby snack. Daphne is on this screen. Go to the right and pick up the can. This will be a useful weapon. Daphne will tell you that she wonders if any of this garbage will be useful. Talk to her for a Scooby snack. Exit using the gap in the fence to your right. Velma is on this screen. Go to the right. She will remind you to hunt for clues. Select the boots you found earlier and talk to her. It seems that the boots you found are covered in tar. Velma will leave. Follow her out. There's not much for you to do on this screen. Just go to the far right and exit using the gap in the face. Daphne is on this screen. Talk to her for a Scooby snack. Go in front of the steps and jump. While on the step, jump again. You should land on the porch. Now go to the right edge and wait for the vertically moving platform. Jump on the platform and ride it up. The rat on the roof to the left moves really fast. You might want to pelt him with a can from the moving platform. After you dispatch of the rat, jump onto the roof. Go left on the roof. Near the left edge, there's a fan. Pick it up. Get off the roof using the platform you just rode up, then exit using the gap in the fence near the platform. You'll see Fred on this screen. Go to the right near Fred and he'll tell you that there's an opening there, but he needs to blow the weeds away. Select the fan and talk to him. He'll take the fan, but he'll tell you he needs a power source for it to work. Go to your left. You'll see a generator there. Be careful though. Once you get close to it, a zombie will appear and try to ambush you. When he appears, immediately run to you right, past Fred and the barrels. He'll turn near the barrels, and disappear. Now go back to the left and pick up the generator. Go back to the right and talk to Fred again. He'll use the fan with the generator to blow away the leaves and clear a path for you. After he's done, he'll tell you that you'll need more gas if you're going to use the generator again. Now pick up the generator and the fan; you'll need them later. Fred will leave; follow him.

It seems that old man Grumper's land was worth a fortune, but he wouldn't sell it to Drabwell. So he devised a plan to scare Grumper into selling it to him. His wife was his accomplice in all this, as she dressed up as a zombie to aid in the executing of the plan. With this great master plan, he was going to get the old man to sign his land over to him. And he would've gotten away with it, if it wasn't for those meddling kids and their dog too! Mystery 4: Bradshaw Manor The gang is heading towards the old, abandoned Bradshaw Manor.

Epilogue. The "Count" was really J.D. Morgan. His company was going under, so he had to print out counterfeit five dollar bills in the manor to save it! To scare everyone away from his illegal operations, he came up with these fake vampire hauntings in Bradshaw Manor. With his business partner as his accomplice, he was going to print out all the fake money he wanted to. And he would've gotten away with it, if it wasn't for those meddling kids and their dog too! +++++++++++++++++ ++ Bonus Games ++ +++++++++++++++++ To break up the monotony of solving mysteries, there are a variety of bonus games that serve as diversions from the action. When you enter some rooms, you will automatically start a bonus game. Points in the game when you are able to play a bonus game are denoted in the FAQ. There are two types of bonus games: the sandwich making bonus game and the whack a monster bonus stage. If you score high enough in them within the time limits of the game, you can win snacks or extra lives. Mmm... Sandwiches ----------------- In this bonus game, the object is to make the largest sandwich. Shaggy will raid the fridge and toss out random sandwich ingredients. Scooby holds two plates for two sandwiches and must use them to catch the ingredient that Shaggy throws from the background. You have to move Scooby so that the ingredients land on the plates. You get points for each ingredient that you catch and keep on the plates. You must be careful though, as whenever you move, the pile of sandwich ingredients on each plate begins to topple. The faster you move, the more likely it is that you. If the sandwich ingredients fall off the plate, you lose all the points you gained from catching them. In addition, you must keep the number of ingredients on the plate relatively equal. Otherwise, one of Scooby's arms sags lower than the other and stands a greater chance of dropping the ingredients. Whack A Monster --------------- Ya know those whack-a-gator or whack-a-mole things you see in the arcades? This is just like that. Shaggy must use his hammer to whack monsters that pop out of vases. He must be careful not to hit his friends though. There are also several powerups that pop up from the vases from time to time. There's the speed up powerup, which increases the speed at which you can hit monsters. Then there's the freeze time and extra time powerups, which are self explanatory. Quick tip: You can actually PAUSE the game while in a bonus stage. Use this to you advantage, especially in Whack A Monster, so you can see what's poping up where to know which direction to press your control pad in. +++++++++++++++++ ++ Tips/Cheats ++ +++++++++++++++++ Cheats ------ View Credits: Enter SPNNR as a password. Passwords: Level 2 TDBKSRQ Level 3 XLWPMTC Level 4 NBKSDLV Tips ---- - If you're going out on your own without the walkthrough, be sure to sniff everywhere for clues. You never know when one may turn up. If you think you've found a clue, always talk to Velma to find out more. - Remember that you don't have an infinite number of weapons. The only weapon that you can use endlessly is the hammer, all other weapons can be deplted. - If you're aiming for a high mystery point score, play the game the whole way through. The game's passwords don't save points scored. - Talk to Daphne frequently for a Scooby snack. She'll usually give you one and you find a clue and take it to Velma. ++++++++++++ ++ Trivia ++ ++++++++++++ Did you know... - some people in the game are named after some of the desingers. All the villains for example, are named after designers. Mickey Mindang is named after Jaid Mindang, J.D. Morgan is named after Andrew Mindang, Captain Porter is named after lead programmer Matt Porter and Dean Drabwell is named after Nina-Simeone and Darren Drabwell. Bradshaw Manor was named after Lynsey Bradshaw. - Daphne's dress in the game is colored wrong. It's supposed to be her signature purple, but instead, it's a reddish brown. Possibly due to palette limitations? - Count Bagosi in Mystery 4 is clearly named after horror movie icon Bela Lugosi, who played the definitive Dracula on the big screen in the earlier days of the genre. - the Genesis version of this game, released around the same time, is totally different. It's more of a standard point and click type adventure, except you use the gamepad, not a mouse. It sported some beautiful, cartoon quality grahics, some of the best seen on the Genesis and certainly one of the best uses of the Genesis' limited color palette. However, the gang plays almost no role and Scooby and Shaggy are left to solve the mysteries by themselves. It had only two mysteries, but they were pretty complicated. While it lacks the wonderful platform/adventure hybrid gameplay of the SNES version, it's still worth a play. +++++++++++++ ++ Credits ++ +++++++++++++ Thanks to.. -Hanna Barbara for making Scooby Doo cartoons. -Sunsoft for publishing some great Scooby Doo games. -Casey Kasem for being the DEFINITIVE voice of Shaggy. -The late Don Messick, the original and the best voice of Scooby. -Red Herring... or maybe not.
