Scooby-Doo! First Frights is a 3D action platformer and companion game to "Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins," a live-action prequel to the original series which releases on DVD and on the Cartoon Network in Fall 2009. Filled with the same hair-raising, yet family-friendy fun that has made the Scooby-Doo! franchise iconic for decades, First Frights is a fresh take on an old favorite featuring multiple game modes, a co-op play option, and a young version of Scooby, and teenage representations of all your other favorite Mystery, Inc. characters. In Scooby-Doo! First Frights players witness the roots of Mystery Inc. as the gang unites for the first time to solves some of its first mysteries. The story picks up right where the DVD/Cartoon Network leaves off as Scooby, Shaggy and the rest of the super-cool teen Mystery, Inc. gang explore spooky environments, solve puzzles, combat enemies and collect clues to unmask devious villains and gain prestige as world famous sleuths. With ghosts and ghouls around every corner, high school has never sounded so fun. An action platformer spread over 22 levels, Scooby-Doo! First Frights challenges the player to utilize the unique strengths, abilities, weapons, and other items of each member of Mystery, Inc. through a series of adventures and puzzle-solving scenarios. The game features game modes such as Storyline and Freeplay, as well as single player and drop in/out two-person co-op play options. The co-op option is an important feature due to each character's unique skill set which can be utilized better depending on who they are paired with.
In addition, this functionality allows more experienced players, like parents or an older child, to share the adventure with younger or less experienced players, with each taking the lead as they wish. Along with these features the game also contains additional features such as charged attacks, voice talent from the "Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins" release, and character powerups that are sure to please both kids and their parents alike. Extend the movie experience as you take Mystery, Inc. , through its first cases and view clips from the film. Four all-new mysteries spread over 22 levels. Explore the Phantom Cruise Ship, Haunted High School, Foreboding Castle and more. Disguise yourself in a variety of super-powerful costumes unique to each character to gain abilities and weapons.
