Summary

A strange game that has the capacity to be difficult and irritating

The Good

Getting different guns is fun and it has puzzle elements to its gameplay that make it interesting.

The Bad

I always thought it was too difficult as a little kid as it had a steep learning curve. Looking back on it, the bad part was the pace of game play. You can only move at a walking speed with Fester, and when fast things come at you, its really really irritating. The gameplay was always too frustrating for me to fully warm up to this game.

The Bottom Line

You are uncle Fester with a gun and you shoot these weird frogs, blobs, and beehives. You go into sewers and you have to figure out when to use what items. It's like an uncaptivating zelda game almost.
