Loosely based on the 1994 film of the same name and on the classic novel, Frankenstein, Mary Shelley's Frankenstein for the Super Nintendo puts you in the role of the misunderstood creature. Equipped with a staff and bolts of electricity, you must lumber through six levels of play, beating to a pulp or frying anyone who gets in your way.
As the Frankenstein Monster you are not malicious. However, you just can't seem to go anywhere without being attacked by villagers, leeches, soldiers, dogs, giant spiders, sailors, polar bears and bats. You must also dodge a variety of traps, such as falling chandeliers and chunks of ice. Your only goal in life is to come to terms with your manufactured existence (you were formed from the body parts of various dead people) and your obsessed creator, who happens to be on your tail.
The story unfolds using a "story teller" feature, which is another way of saying the game has cinematic intermissions which are integral to the gameplay and the plot. In addition to using pure brute strength and electrical power, you must also use a dash of brain power to get through each level. Hidden items, secret levers, hidden clues, secret pathways and other strategic points are all germane to the action. During your lonely quest, you will traverse a dark and foreboding crypt, the cholera-infested streets of Ingolstadt, the frozen tundra of the Arctic, a creepy swamp and the Frankenstein House. ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
