> THE MUNSTERS by Alternative Software

• Completed by Brendan Phoenix
Reviewed by Vinny Mainolfi

Back in the eighties, Channel 4 obtained the rights to show repeats (re-runs if you're reading this in the US) of the popular US sixties sitcom, The Munsters. Once a week around 6pm, our TV tuner would be superglued to Channel 4 for our weekly fix of this cracking, comedy monster romp. If any TV programme was going to make a fun game then it was definitely going to be The Munsters...

Unfortunately, Alternative Software and Tiger Developments didn't seem to think so and produced a sub standard arcade adventure game that failed to capture any essence of the TV programme and wasted a real opportunity :( The game is far too hard and the only real good thing going for it is the cracking TV title tune created by the great Ben Daglish.

Herman finally completes his tasks...

The End!

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: Brendan cheated. How do I know that? It's the ONLY way he could have ever completed this VERY difficult game ;-)

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: The word 'CONGRATULATIONS' appears on the screen then to the high score table.


  • Brendan: Always liked the TV show The Munsters - much better than the Addams Family.

    This ending is really, really (wait for it) BAD. For me this manages a 0.5 / 10 just for the congratulations!

  • Vinny: It's a sad, sad day when the programmers of a TV license, such as The Munsters, produce a poor game and then finish it off with a seriously bad ending. 0.5 from me too.

  • Andrew Fisher: I'm horrified by how poor this ending is, it wraps it up so badly like a mummy covered in string...

    And Morticia Addams was much hotter than Marilyn Munster.

  • Andy Vaisey: Unlike the 'monsters' in the TV show, this ending is genuinely shocking.

FINAL SAY: Herman would be turning in his grave if he saw this ending!

G.E. RATING: 0.5 / 10
