However at night the smells of the food in Yally's refrigerator are switched around with each other. Shortly afterwards, the smells of all of Monsterville have been switched. Clearly there is something strange afoot. Little Monster and his assistant, Detective Kerploppus will need to discover the true identity of the evil smell switcher, and stop the smell switching once and for all.

The Smelly Mystery is an interactive children's storybook as well interactive mystery solving game. Players must help Little Monster, looking for clues on each page of reading interactive storybook. When clues are found, they are stored in a log and can be matched to the six suspects, identified by what their favorite things are, and by footprints and handprints.

And finally the "New" option resets the game, restarting the mystery with new clues to implicate a new suspect.
