The Addams Family rom

The Addams Family ROM is available to play for Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES). This game is the US English version and can be played using the BSNES or HIGAN (SNES) Emulator on Windows, Mac, Linux, Android and IOS devices.


The Addams Family is a platform game based on the 1991 film of the same name and developed and published by Ocean Software. It was released for home consoles such as the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, computers such as the Amiga, and handheld consoles like the Game Boy.

Additional Information

The Addams Family is a side-scrolling action-adventure platform game. The story involves Abigail Craven scheming to obtain The Addams Family’s secret wealth. To do this, she brainwashes Uncle Fester, who has just lost his memory, into being an ally, and is also aided by The Judge and the Addams’ family attorney, Tully Alford, who takes control of the mansion. Morticia Addams, Pugsley Addams, Wednesday Addams, and Granny go to the house to meet with Tully about the property, only to be kidnapped within it by Abigail.

When Gomez Addams gets home, he finds the other family members gone. To save his family, Gomez runs, jumps, and squats his way throughout the large mansion invested with ghosts, mutants, monsters, bats and rabbits, as well as stage hazards like stars, swinging clock pendulums, and fire lakes. Puzzle-solving is also involved in saving the Addams family members. For example, Wednesday is found in an ice-themed freezing area and it is up to the player to figure out how to thaw her out, and Granny is trapped in a stove that’s turned off by a switch the player must find.

The Amstrad CPC game has many doors that can only be unlocked by keys hidden throughout the mansion. In most versions, the underground chambers must be activated to save Morticia; Lurch plays a tune in the Music Room that activates it, but only when Wednesday, Pugsley, Granny and Uncle Fester are rescued and meet up in the room. In the NES version, Gomez has to collect $1,000,000 to save Morticia. The Judge is the game’s final boss.

The Addams Family is similar to open-ended titles such as The Legend of Zelda (1986) and Super Metroid (1994), as the player has the freedom to maneuver both the indoor and outdoor areas of the mansion in any order. The core of the game is in the mansion’s Hall of Stairs, consisting of the front entrance and six doorways. Rooms these doors lead to include the kitchen, the games room, and the portrait gallery, and each feature around 40–50 screens. A boss, a huge bird, is located in the outside garden.
