This page details one or more prototype versions of Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase (PlayStation).

A demo disc of Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase based on an earlier build of the game, containing several differences. The files on the disc predate the final release by 10 days.


Elementary, my dear Cactus.
This needs some investigation.
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
Specifically: Are the other levels still accessible?
  • The only playable level in the demo is the second prehistoric level, though the rest of the game's files still seem to be intact.
  • The demo has no voice acting.

The demo uses a retro 1960's aesthetic much like the original cartoon, while the final game goes for a more "cyber" look.

The talking icons all have blue backgrounds and different artwork of the characters. Remnants of this are found in the final game with distorted static.

Scooby and Shaggy's life icons were changed from portraits to coins.

Title Screen

The title screen uses artwork from the movie's VHS and DVD release, and Comic Sans as the font.

Two of the menu options are dummied out in the demo, but their graphics still remain.


Demo Final
SDCC HUD Demo.png SDCC HUD Final.png
  • The radio was given a shiny gloss. It, the textbox, and the main HUD were made semi-transparent in the final game.
  • The demo used a more retro 60s-esque font for the numbers (see above).
  • Lives are represented by Scooby's head in the demo, while the final game uses a coin with Scooby's head (again, see above).
  • The Comic Sans lettering was made more bold and less spaced in the final.
  • In the demo, Shaggy is heard over the radio in the first prehistoric level, while in the final game it's Velma.
Demo Final
SDCC Demo Barrel.png SDCC Final Egg.png
  • In the demo, the destructible objects are barrels. They were later changed to dinosaur eggs, likely due to making more sense thematically and the barrels blending in too much with the background.
Demo Final
SDCC Gators Demo.png SDCC Gators Final.png
  • The water's shade of blue is slightly different, as are the plesiosaur's textures and colors.

Game Over

Demo Final
SDCC GO.BIN0- p00 Demo.png SDCC GO.BIN0- p00.png

The background and font on the game over screen is different, and the Phantom Virus was scaled down in the final.

Warp Room

While the warp room is not accessible, its textures can be found in M/M21.BIN.

Demo Final
SDCC Demo M21.BIN-1- p00.png SDCC Final M21.BIN-1- p00.png

The screens have a Media Player-like interface taken from the movie's trailer, which was changed to generic metal screens in the final game.

Demo Final
Maybe it's just Scooby's speech impediment? SDCC M21.BIN-11- p00 Final.png

The Memory Card screen features what is either Engrish, or a tongue-in-cheek reference to Scooby's speech impediment.

Unused Audio
