Game Journal March 23b: Scooby-Doo Unmasked! Jinkies!

I think I once mentioned the GBA version of this game long ago, well this is for the GameCube version...

The story, like most of Mystery Inc.'s adventures, starts when the gang visit Fred's cousin Jed...

Seriously, how many cousins do they have? 5.000? But let's continue, you see Jed works in a special effects company, where they have invented mubber, a revolutionary substance that creates the most life-like monsters!

But Jed is gone, and his boss Stanton, voiced by Adam West, is blaming him for thesabotage of his factory...

All of his animatronics have gone hay-wire, and now Scooby must solve the mystery and stop the animatronic menace!

The game is a plataformer, like most of Scooby's games, and you must navigate each level to find clues that unlock new areas, trap pieces (that you don't really use) and food ingredients for a food mini game that increase your health bar...

You obviouly start in the special effects factory finding clues that will lead you to Chinatown, where you find you first cotume made of Mubber, a kung fu costume, with comes with it's own slow-down effects when you fight, and even have a Hadoken or Kame Ame Ha-like wave attack, unlike the GBA version, you can only have one costume at a time, but unlike the GBA version the worlds are more complex and 3D, and they don't look the same either!

The clues make you reach an amusement park of sorts, where you find the bat costume and unfortunately there is only one level more, the museum (they sure seem to spend a lot of time in museums!) where you find the Robin Hood costume...

Costumes can be upgraded with a special item which isn't hard to find at all, and I must say that this is the first game, that I remember, where you actually fight monsters that don't appear in the series...

Unfortunately, it's very short, with only three full worlds, and being not that hard, you'll beat this pretty fast, even if you want to pick up all items...

It's good, but not as good and Night of 100 Frights, but I'd only recommend this if you are a Scooby-Doo fan or if you want to get this for a little kid, who might find it challenging...

(Dang, it is true, the shorter the game is the less I have to say about it!)
