The Addams Family Cheats & Cheat Codes for NES, SNES, Sega Genesis, and more

In the early 1990s, a supernatural black comedy film based on The Addams Family cartoon by Charles Affams was released. The film was a commercial success making back seven times its production costs and spawned a successful IP. Even a game was released for NES and SNES in 1992 with a Sega Genesis port coming soon after. Over the 90s, the game was released for the popular home consoles, computers, and handhelds. The game is a platformer developed by Ocean Software. The game was reviewed as average and it was criticized for its lack of innovation.

The Premise Of The Addams Family

In the game, you control Gomez Addams, on a mission to rescue the other members of the Addams family from Abigail Craven who is trying to seize the Addams’ wealth. The game is non-linear and shares a lot of similarities with the likes of The Legend Of Zelda and Metroid. Never did I think I would ever type those words in my life. The game includes bosses, power-ups, extra lives, and other collectibles. It was originally planned to be a puzzler released only on computer consoles but changed once an SNES version started development.
