Description

In Scooby-Doo!: Show Down In Ghost Town the gang (Fred, Daphne, Velma, Shaggy and Scooby-Doo) stop for a snack at Los Burritos. They soon discover that the town is haunted by a phantom known as "the Faceless Rider", a strange creature with glowing eyes.

The game starts after the gang have arrived in the town. There's a strange ghostly noise coming from somewhere and the friends decide to explore to find its source. As they do so they will encounter new screens and characters who will provide clues and information. At various points in the game the player will encounter puzzles such as how to release a trapped character. There is also an arcade type mini game called 'Pie Noon' in which Scooby and the phantom exchange pies in the town's high street.

Most screens have non game-related hotspots that trigger short animations such as moths flying from a curtain or of snakes and beetles appearing from under rocks and floorboards.
When all characters have given their clues to the team the player must find one additional vital clue. Once this has been done Fred will take the player to the screen where all the clues are displayed and from here the player selects their guess as to the identity of the 'faceless Rider'. The game also features several mini-games (predominantly puzzle-based).

The game has no save / load facility. Before starting a game the player must enter their name and the game records progress automatically. Downloadable content includes a poster and a Scooby-Doo message Mate for the desktop.
