The Addams Family is an action platform game developed and published in 1992 by Nintendo America for the arcades. The game is based on the popular 1991 blockbuster movie, featuring the weirdest (and among the funniest) family ever existed on the silver screen. It was ported to the 16bit Atari ST, Amiga, Sega Mega Drive and Super Nintendo home systems.
The Addams FamilySTORY / GAMEPLAY
In this fun, action platform game you control Gomez (you know who this is right?) and your mission is to save the members of your family that have been kidnapped and stowed away in different locations of the mansion, guarded by a boss of some sort. You have to venture through all the areas of inside and out of the mansion, each swarmed by hoards of weird creatures that will never stop to prevent you from achieving your goal. There is a variety of different areas for you to explore and also find some secret bonuses.
The gameplay is similar to Super Mario (and other games of the same genre). Gomez is actually unarmed but is able to eliminate enemies by simply jumping onto their heads or just avoiding them. You can walk and jump in all eight-directions onto higher platforms to progress. Gomez can also find objects to throw like, for instance, golf balls. Your energy bar (shown as two hearts) is limited to only two hits but you can pick up more hearts to refill. There are also some dollar signs that will grant some extra score points and, most importantly, if you collect 50 of those, your energy will be fully replenished. Overall, the Addams Family is a fun action platform game, with good visuals.

The graphics on the Atari ST version are a joy to watch as they offer some nice colors, cool characters and several background details. Note that a number of the background details is missing on the Amiga (now that's weird). The ST is the only 16bit version that runs in flip-screen and has no actual scrolling, so you can only see one screen at a time and move Gomez to the next by passing through the current area you're in. This affects negatively the whole experience compared to the other versions as many times is hard to avoid an incoming creature.
The sound on the ST includes the popular movie theme at the intro, a few nice in-game tunes and a bunch of sound effects.
