Here is my main criticism of the game. Getting through level one is neither easy nor quick, so having battled through to level two I think it reasonable to be given the choice of restarting the game at that level when killed. Otherwise frustration at plodding through the same repetitive screens will almost inevitably set in. Except for that annoying point I would have rated the game higher, but the Munsters was nonetheless challenging, great fun and well put together.
Again Again have captured the flavour of the TV series, but the game style is old hat and you won't be riveted to your computer for long.
The game designers obviously spent little time looking at the TV series before opting for a walking (and later, flying) shoot-'em-up with minor arcade adventure elements - little in the game, other than its title and music, reminds you of the fun characters. Slim sprites bear only slight resemblance to their screen originals and humour is non-existent, so no atmosphere is generated. The simple gameplay may appeal to some, so if possible, try before you buy.
Ever after collecting objects it was frustrating taking on the bigger beasts. Sometimes they only barely touched Lily to drain all her energy away. And with only one life per game, I was going back to the beginning with frustrating regularity. The price tag seems excessive for what's on offer... Mediocre graphics, an unoriginal plot and overly frustrating gameplay. RIP.
As you've probably guessed, I wasn't all that keen on The Munsters. The standard of programming almost reaches average, but there seems to have been very little though put into the game design. I would baulk at spending ten quid on the Spectrum version, but would faint at shelling out twenty of my favourite coins for an ST version which is little better. Not a game I would recommend, even to Munsters fans.
