Scooby Doo's Maze Chase is a visually appealing game, but that's about it. Perhaps I just haven't played it enough, but in a way, it's an awful lot like Thunder Castle without the great music and less interesting opponenets. You run around a maze, trying to catch four ghosts. They look like they're wearing sheets and resemble the garb of a certain unpleasant organization's infamous garb a bit too much to be comfortable. The game even has some graphics that appear to be similar to Thunder Castle's, and uses the same thunderclap sound effect. It does offer you a large variety of mazes, and you can construct your own as well. Scooby is well-rendered and very smoothly animated. But it's really just another maze game. This game also has the same title screen music as Coleco's Donkey Kong Junior!

There are at least two different types of boxes for Scooby Doo's Maze Chase. The traditional book-style box, and the flip-top box, which was common late in the life of the Intellivision at Mattel. The versions made in Singapore had the book-style boxes and the nicer label variant. These are mostly found in markets outside the U.S.A.

In addition to the two box styles, the backs of the two different styles list different 'made in...' text in the lower left corner.
