Description official descriptions

The Addams Family is a platform game based on the characters and settings from the movie (which, in turn, is based on the famous 1960's television series, which in turn is based on Charles Addams cartoon of the same name, which was featured in the magazine, The New Yorker, in the 1930s).

The game takes place towards the end of the movie: the Addams Family has been evicted from their home by a court order issued by a backstabbing attorney (there's one for the books), Tully Alford. Even worse, the other Addamses: Morticia, Pugsley, Wednesday, Granny, and Lurch have gone missing.

As Gomez, you must tour the Addams mansion in search of your lost family, battling out mysterious monsters and evading traps, and eventually face your nemesis, Tully.

Addams Family in 2d jumpy roundy mode

The Good
It was a fun platform game with good level design

The Bad
Some of the levels were far to vast and difficult.

The Bottom Line
Addams Family on the Amiga was almost identical to the SNES version but us Amiga owners missed out on the nice backdrops (the Amiga versions background was just black). The game's music was happy and yet creepy at the same time, which set the mood perfectly for the truely bizzare world Gomez (you) have to explore. To sum up Addams Family was a neat little game which was good fun to play but let down by some parts of the game being infuriatingly difficult, as you progressed through the game those hard bits become ever more frequent, I do remember completing it in the end, but it was a hard slog to the finish line, not one I'd play again.
