Disclaimer to Scholastic: I am not doing this to hurt your company at all. That’s the last thing I’d want to do. This video does not directly compete with the original product, and is in no way a replacement for it. In fact, it’s actually better used as a demonstration to see what the real game is like before purchasing. Please understand I mean no harm in doing this, and I make no profits off of this video.

Here we have I Spy Spooky Mansion (the original, not the deluxe version). I found this at Half-Price Books for five bucks (in the box too. I kid you not, they’re selling the original and not the deluxe version. Figure that one out), and since I have the deluxe version and it feels more fitting to do this version first, I figured why not? And that’s how this video came to be. I will do the deluxe version sometime else, but this should hold you over for now, and plus I’m pretty sure more of you grew up on this one anyway. This game includes 26 riddles to decipher with 13 screens, plus three minigames. Personally I didn’t like this game as much as I Spy School Days as a kid (I have a walkthrough of that on youtube.com/user/HumongousSoundtracks if you want to see that game), mainly because this one was too short to me and the narrator could get extremely grating, and it overall just wasn’t that memorable IMO.
For those who don’t know, this game is based off the book “I Spy Spooky Night”. Being an I Spy game, this took some memorization to do cleanly, and apart from a few stutterings, it went well. It wasn’t very hard to memorize most of the objects, since 26 riddles really isn’t that much. I first played through the riddles and did Mystery Bins and Creepy Collections when I came across them, and did the ghost making last. I then did the puzzle and finished the game. Really, that’s all I have to say about this longplay. For those who are wondering, the other I Spy games I can do right now are Spooky Mansion Deluxe (probably won’t come until later since I’m sick of this game), Treasure Hunt, and Fantasy. Hope you enjoy the longplay!
