For those of you who are tired of games that are prone to inducing epileptic seizures then Scooby Doo!: Night of 100 Frights is the kind of simple game you should get into.
The story has Shaggy, Fred, Daphne and Velma get kidnapped by The Mastermind (Tim Curry, in his second outing as a Scooby Doo baddie) and Scooby must rescue them from a spooky mansion.
Not the most imaginative of plots but it's loads of fun playing Scooby. The levels are kind of easy at first but complicate, only slightly, soon after the first power up. You get infinite lives so if there is a certain level you get stuck at, you can try again and again until you get it right.
The opening cut-scene has very bad graphics but the graphics of the actual game are nice and colorful. The music is pleasant enough but it gets slightly annoying after a while.
Definitely a game for children of 5 years and up (um...adults too) as the puzzles are not too heavy and the gameplay is light and easy. Worth the money for sure. The only bad part of the game is the inability to control the viewpoint. Many lives are lost because you cannot see where Scooby is jumping to. It's a minor complaint of an otherwise cool game.
