Frankenstein is a text adventure game released by CRL in 1987 for the Commodore 64, Amstrad CPC and ZX Spectrum home computers. The game is based on the novel "Frankenstein" by Mary Shelley.


Dr. Frankenstein must find and destroy his murderous escaped monster; the monster must remain free and learn the reason for its existence.


Frankenstein is a standard text adventure with static graphics in some locations to set the scene. It is similar to the earlier game Dracula, which was produced by the same author. It is divided in three parts; the player takes the role of Dr. Frankenstein in the first two, and of his monster in the third.


As with the earlier CRL adventure Dracula, the game was awarded a "15" certificate for its gory graphics.[1][2]
