Status and Scoring
The status panel displays from left to right:
Hostages: Displays members of the Addams Family who have to
Stamina: Displays six hearts which shrink in size with time.
These can be replenished by collecting hearts. When all the
hearts have gone Gomez loses a life.
Lives: Displays the number of lives Gomez has remaining.
Score: Displays the current score.
Keys: Each time Gomez collects one of the six different
coloured keys it will be displayed here.
To explore the house and its surroundings fully, Gomez will
need to go through the doors that are behind and in front of
him. To go forward Gomez must stand behind a foreground
doorway and press "A"; to go backward he must stand in front
of a background doorway and press "Q". Some of the doorways
are blocked by coloured locked doors and to open them Gomez
must find the same coloured key. Once a coloured key has
been collected all doors of that colour will be opened.
Scattered throughout the game are many useful items such as
extra life trophies, stamina hearts and keys.
To find and release the members of his family Gomez will
need to find the location of many of these.
Once Gomez has located a family member they will set him a
survival test to prove that he is not an impostor.
Hints and Tips
1. If a ledge seems out of reach try jumping from the head
of a creature below it.
2. Don't try rushing through an area of evil creatures, as
their tortuous movement may take some thought to overcome.
3. Try not to collect stamina hearts unless you really need
them - you may need them later.
