Loosely based on '70s episode "Nowhere to Hyde," the Pak sends our gang out on a gloomy night (of course) to scour Jekyll Labs and a nearby mansion for a jewel-heisting ghoul.Scooby-Doo! Classic Creep Capers is a text-based adventure in which you explore, grab items, work devices and talk with other characters. By pressing Select, you can alternate five characters: Velma, Fred, Daphne, and the team of Shaggy and Scooby. Each performs character-specific tasks. For example, Velma decodes a series of mysterious symbols in the mansion before losing her glasses,Shaggy hatches a madcap plan to enter the lab and Fred cooks up an overly complicated plan to capture the ghost. Daphne, needless to say, gets captured.Developer Digital Eclipse has cleverly captured the spirit of the classic ghost-busting show. Our main beef is that the game is too short. Also, it's easy to make a mistake writing down the vaguely mystical-looking symbols used in passwords.Available now, Scooby-Doo! Classic Creep Capers is for Game Boy Color only. It is not compatible with monochrome Game Boy systems. The independent Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) has rated the game E (Everyone).
