When the family homestead needs to be sold the Scruffs pull together as a family to save it from the auction block. Thanks to Grandpa Scruff the family must go on a scavenger hunt around the house to gather valuable items to sell but they must be on the lookout for secret items that will collectively be a clue. A clue to what you say? A clue that will reveal a big secret and also save the family home by itself.

The Scruffs is a hidden object game where you must go around the various rooms of the Scruffs home and find hidden items. You must also be on the lookout for three other things; doggie biscuits, family photos, and the secret item. The doggie biscuits will be used to feed the family dog Scruffy so that he can help you find that one last item that you just can't seem to spot. He'll bark and jump when your pointer is near the object in question. The family photos will unlock a mini-game where the two Scruff kids will scribble something on the original photo and ask you to spot it. If you can do this enough times you will unlock yet another secret. The secret hidden item will be revealed every level after finding all the required items and putting together a scrambled photograph. This photograph reveals a different item and you must venture back into the rooms to look for it.

There are 15 levels in total and 20 photographic mini-games. The player can choose to play the challenging timed/normal mode or the relaxed no timer mode.
