The Addams Family is a platform game distributed by Ocean Software in 1992 for Mega Drive, SNES, Amiga and Atari ST, and later on numerous other platforms including NES, Game Gear, Game Boy, Commodore 64 and ZX Spectrum.
The title is inspired by the movie The Addams Family; The characters are faithful to their film counterparts also physically.
The game follows Gomez Addams' journey, aiming to rescue members of his family who were kidnapped (except Lurch and Hand) and hidden in his maze, filled with traps and secret passages.
Each box with a 'A' for 'Addams' painted, Gomez will receive advice to continue. Gomez, like Mario, just jumps on enemies to eliminate them, and can also grab and throw objects against them.
By advancing into the game, the player will receive passwords to restart the game where he came.
