Game Boy edition

The Game Boy release of the game uses a password-based saving system to save the player's progress. The game consisted of seven floors where various items and parts of Bitsy (Franky's girlfriend) were hidden. Keys and special items were needed to access additional areas to find more body parts and equipment required to resurrect Bitsy.


The Game Boy and unreleased NES versions of the game used two classical music pieces throughout. The title screen music is Bach's Fugue No. 2 In C Minor BWV 847 (The Well Tempered Clavier in C), and the gameplay music is Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata. The Game Boy and NES versions' music was arranged by Mark Cooksey. He composed the music in C-Lab Notator for the Atari ST.


Dr. Franken II is a sequel to the original and was released for the Game Boy in 1997. It was developed by MovieTime and published by Elite Systems. It is a platform game in which the lead character, Franky, must escape the castle in which he is trapped in order to search for pieces of a gold tablet which will help him to stave off debt.
