On Thursday (January 18th) afternoon, a brand new app entitled "Scooby-Doo: Mystery Cases" was released for free on Android and Apple devices. The game is currently available on the Google Play Store (Android) and the App Store (Apple). There are over 45 levels of gameplay, which includes looking for clues, playing mini-games, building traps, and of course, unmasking the villain! Along the way, you can find Scooby Snacks as you level up (in addition to daily snacks you can earn everyday), so you can buy more costumes. You can also upgrade your costumes for perks such as more time, extra hints, and more snacks. There are also additional challenges along the way, which if successfully completed, could earn you bonus stars. The game also has several interactive menus and features, including reading character bios and comic books. You also have the ability to watch videos, and maybe even become famous on your fictional MysteryTube account! Within only two days of being released, the app is already #5 in the top 10 family apps on the App Store.
Here is the description of the game from the WB Kids website:
You love Scooby-Doo, but have you ever wondered what it would be like to join Shaggy, Fred, Velma, and Daphne as the newest member of the Mystery Inc. Gang? Well, now’s your chance with Scooby-Doo Mystery Cases. All you have to do is open the app, and you’re in! Follow along with Scooby and his friends on their latest crime-solving adventure. You’ll find hidden objects in over 45 levels, discover new monsters, build interesting traps, and unmask creepy villains. Case closed. But it’s not all fun and games. Actually, it is. You can make the largest sandwich possible, piece together tricky puzzles to uncover clues, find objects in the dark before the flashlight batteries run out, and make sure Shaggy and Scooby-Doo don’t eat too many stinky boots. You’ll earn bonus stars throughout the games, and best of all, there’s Scooby Snacks. Want to give Shaggy and Scooby-Doo a new look? There’s a costume section for you to dress them up in silly outfits (dinosaur masks included). Plus these outfits give you gameplay bonuses like more time to complete puzzles and Scooby Snack multipliers. That’s right—more Scooby Snacks. If you need a break from all your monster-hunting fun, you can explore groovy comic books and videos, including new stop motion animated shorts. Recognize the voices in the app? They’re the same ones used in the current animated series Be Cool, Scooby-Doo! This app is full of mystery-solving fun for Scooby fans of all ages. The real mystery is . . . why aren’t you playing it already?

I downloaded it and played today, it's so much fun!! It has 4 cases, based on Camp Scare, Legend of the Phantosaur, Shaggy's Showdown and The Brave and the Bold. However, there are only 3 levels in the Batman case and there's a banner that reads "Preview". I hope that doesn't mean you'll have to pay to get the next levels when they become available but instead you will just have to update the app.

That's great! I'll admit when I was reading the KidsWB description to add the post, the app seemed a bit kiddy. So nice to hear that the app is fun though! Picked up my copy of Brave and the Bold earlier this week but haven't gotten a chance to watch it yet, so I'll wait to download/play it until I watch the movie. Don't want any spoilers! :)

I would suggest downloading it first and let it be until you watch the movie. You never know if it'll end up costing something.

I downloaded it today. Several people have requested that I write a review of Brave and the Bold so I'll probably watch the film later this week. :)
