I’d be very surprised if you do not enjoy Frankenstein’s Monster. I award it “hidden gem” status.

Avec les "moyens du bord", Data Age a su créer un titre fort, au charisme évident et à l'univers travaillé. Que ce soit graphisme, jouabilité, subtilités ou son, tout transpire l'application. Le jeu n'est pourtant pas des plus connus mais mérite de figurer dans toute bonne logithèque Atari 2600 ou dédiée au thème de l'horreur!
Accomplished Donkey Kong or Pitfall! players will be able to bottle up the monster in short order. But for those who aren't familiar with those two cartridges, or who found them an interesting challenge, Frankenstein should prove a formidable and engaging opponent.
The Game Hoard (Oct 22, 2019)
Frankenstein’s Monster would be a simple game if all it had were its six stages, but the pressure of the creature’s slowly building energy makes it into a game that mixes speed and precision into a tense balancing act. Having to weigh the benefits of speeding through an area with the consequences of messing up makes Frankenstein’s Monster into a game of risk and reward, the timer a reasonable length to apply pressure without straining the level design. The frantic bat swarm segments aren’t the best, but most aspects of Frankenstein’s Monster come together into an interesting experience with a clear achievable end goal to motivate the player to keep trying to win even after a defeat.
The Video Game Critic (Oct 27, 2010)
Frankenstein's gameplay isn't terribly original, but its unique theme and entertaining quirks make this one worth tracking down.
