Editorial Reviews

Baf's Guide

You've inherited Castle Frankenstein. Complete his work, then escape from it. I remember a version of this game in TRS-80 BASIC from years and years ago. One of Olsen's better games, but rather primitive for all that.

-- Carl Muckenhoupt

FRANKENSTEIN'S LEGACY's lack of graphic description is at times comic also. If you order the game to cut open a dead body, you are told "OK." That's it, just "OK." If you then take an organ out of the body and examine it, you are told simply "You see nothing special."

Tales of Horror
I didn't find the puzzles quite as hard in this game [as in Night of the Walking Dead], but one or two were a problem. At least there were no walking dead in the graveyard here, but there was the problem of conserving a light source. Quite a lot of detail is involved in restoring the creature to life. Then you have another problem - the creature.
