Addams Family (SNES) Gameplay

You take control of the Addams’ patriarch as he searches the house for his family and tries to save their fortune. He will have to run and jump through levels filled with enemies that will do whatever it takes to see that Gomez doesn’t find his family. But thanks to his trusty bow and some arrows, disposing of any interference is a breeze.

Addams Family Main Screen

I love this game. It is a typical SNES generation platformer (a Lion King, Aladdin), themed after the Addams Family movie. Instead of stretching the graphics engine, the graphics are stylized like comic books, with pixelated stills from the movie.

Addams Family Gameplay

You explore the Addams Family house and grounds, collecting items and finding lost members of the family. This is one of those games that it takes days to master, but only hours to finish once you get good at it.

The only downside of this game is that the control response is a little weak. Sometimes jumps don’t happen right when you push the button, and some of the later sequences require that you be able to jump with precision. It can be very frustrating. Fortunately, there are plenty of secret free lives for those who care to look.
