This weird game was quite fun to play. It is a very basic hop and bop game, but with so many secrets and different enemies, it was worth playing through. However, I still passed it in a two day rental, so it may be a bit short for some. The graphics are cartoony, and there is a wide variety of enemies. However, there is little strategy in beating most enemies, except to just to bounce on top of them. The music is true to the Addams Family, and it is quite kooky and fits in with game. The sound effects are simple boinks and pops, and don't really do the Snes justice. The controls are fairly good, except the jumping can get a bit shaky, especially when you are making tricky jumps to go over spikes and other such hazards. Again, this game is not long, but there are lots of hidden secrets, and it is a non-linear game, so it is a little bit more valuable than your standard platform game.
