Scooby-Doo arrives on the iPad in The Haunted Halloween [Kids Corner]

Scooby-Doo has eventually infiltrated the iPad and what better timing than just before Halloween. The new app titled “The Haunted Halloween: A Scooby-Doo You Play Too Book is a mixture of interactive book and puzzle games all based around this spooky time of the year.

It’s Halloween in Coolsville and Scooby and the gang are invited to a Halloween party! Only Scooby and Shaggy find themselves in a real haunted house! They need your help to find all the hidden Zoinks Points and solve the Haunted Halloween Party puzzles!

It doesn't mention it in the game features but I really hope there is a mini game that lets you help Velma find her glasses; I have always wanted to do that!
