Scooby-Doo! Showdown in Ghost Town is a PC game by The Learning Company . It was included as part of the Scooby-Doo! Mystery Adventures collection on October 14, 2000.


The gang go to Los Borritos to uncover the mystery of the Faceless Rider.


Scooby-Doo! Showdown in Ghost Town starts off with the player encountering the monster of this game; The Faceless Rider. However, it soon transitions to Mystery Inc. who are currently on there way to the abanonded ghost town, Los Burritos. Once they arrive, they learn the town wasn't so abandoned after all.

Over the course of the game, you will meet many suspects, and depending on the clues given and the difficulty setting, the culprit will be one of them.  

The first suspect you meet is Artie Fackt, who is chained to a chair in the saloon. After freeing him, you have an encounter with the ghostly ghoul himself in a mini-game, but only if you click on the pie on the stool.

As the game progresses, you end up getting separated from the gang and meet the remaining suspects over time, you can find all suspects in their own section.

Occasionally, you will be stopped by the Faceless Rider, and won't be able to explore said area until later.

Once the player has collected all 5 clues, by then, you will have learned that there is a legend of a western gang called The Brick In The Wall Gang. These gangsters got their name from hiding bricks of gold in the walls of buildings by, you guessed it, disguising their valubles as ordinary bricks.

Then, you can capture the monster, and use your clues to unmask the suspect, being one of the side characters you've met in game. Be careful though, some of the clues will try to throw you off. You want to try and match each clue with each suspect based on their personality, appearance, or items you've seen that they had. The suspect that matches with the most clues is your culprit.
