Product Description

GREAT GAME. ALL-TIME CLASSIC. RARE GAME. REALLY FUN TO PLAY. FOR NINTENDO NES SYSTEM. HERE IS A BRIEF SUMMARY The object is to rescue the townspeople from aliens, the strongest of which guard each area. The three areas are: * Outside street: Fester has to traverse around town to get from place to place. Hot dog stands, houses, and buildings are located above ground. * Underground sewers: Don't be afraid of the sewers. There may be nasty enemies like rats and Slime Replicators down here, but this may be the only way to reach cut-off sections of the city. * UFO Platform: Once Fester defeats the five Alien Bosses, the way to the UFO Platform will be revealed. Here, Fester must find and destroy the Control CPU of the ship...provided the aliens don't eat him for lunch first. Fester may enter certain buildings, which transform the game from its standard overhead view into a 3D mode of play akin to a dungeon crawl. In most buildings, Fester will encounter an enormous Alien Boss, which upon defeat will supply Fester with a puzzle piece (a picture of the alien's UFO), and refill all of his items. Since the NES, at the time, was primarily a children's gaming platform, many children were completely unfamiliar with the Addams characters and, at times, did not even realize the game was based on an existing franchise. This quickly changed when The Addams Family was released in theatres in 1991.

Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
6/11: If you were to conduct a survey and try to find out the top ten hardest NES games, you will invariably see Fester's Quest in there. Yes, its reputation for being notoriously difficult to play is much richly deserved. Some have said that it is a straight rip-off from another game made by Sunsoft called Master Blaster. Quite frankly, I just don't see it. Fester's Quest is in a class of its own for different reasons. I am not going to say that it is a good game to play because it is not. For most part, I feel the difficulty of the game is attributed to bad programming. One thing is for sure: there are no passwords, making it a very arduous and draining game to play because once Fester dies, he will have to start all over again from square one. He can be hit by anyone, and it only takes two hit points to die. The maximum is four, if two health bars are found, which is nearly not enough. At least, the programmers had the decency not to take away my inventory and also force me to go through the bosses all over again (thank you...because if that is going to be the case, I guarantee you that Fester's Quest deserves the number one or two spot for being the hardest NES game ever made). Two, the problem with gun upgrades, it's impossible to go from level 8 to 7 (or 6, 5) and then back to 8. So, what do you do when this happens? You need to downgrade (yes...purposely downgrade) the level of the gun to level 4 before rebuilding it back up because you won't see a blue gun upgrade ever again in the game until you do this method. It takes a good ten to fifteen minutes of killing off the spawned green balls in areas 1 to 5 or green crowns in the spaceship area to pick up the downgrades and upgrades. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Old School-enough said February 12, 2012
By Matt L.
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game brought back a lot of old childhood memories playing this back in third grade. It's still fun to play if your into nostalgia. Its not as fast pace as some games of that particular period of time, but its still fun to play if your wanting to experience something old school and a little wacky, but overall its still fun to play.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent but frustrating (and sometimes unfair) January 9, 2012
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
This is an example of a game that I feel could have been up there with some other classic titles for the NES, but it's unfortunate that I can't do so, as there are plenty of flaws that tend to drag the experience down.

The layout for this game is in an overhead view, and it's been known to draw comparisons to another Sunsoft title, Blaster Master. Even at that, I still find Fester's Quest to utilize this style of gameplay in a decent way. You must walk around town and save the town from aliens. By using a gun (and later on, a whip), you can kill enemies to pick up the appropriate items that can be used with the A button. There are bulbs that have to be used every time you enter the sewers, keys to gain more items from noteworthy Addams Family members and enter buildings in a primitive first person perspective, potions to restore health (which I guarantee you will need multiple times), vice grips to regain your speed if stung by a bee that makes you move slow, and that's just a sample from the first area.

The guns are rather flawed. There's the obvious upgrade that can make your gun stronger and have a wider projectile range, but a flaw to some of the gun patterns include shots being blocked by the walls, and shots bypassing the enemies. The major issue with the gun is that it is constant tapping with the B button, which means that a controller with a turbo button would be a far more suitable option in this case. Also, the guns are capable of downgrading, and it's going to be necessary at times when progressing throughout the game.

Another flaw with this game is the unfair life meter and continue options. Fester starts off with two blocks of health, which can get up to four, and it's going to be necessary to save up the potions in the games for the bosses.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun, but could have been better August 12, 2011
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This game had some cool aspects, but like so many other NES games, was lacking in a few things. One thing that would definitely have helped was a password or save feature, because every time you played this game, you HAD to start at the very beginning, which could get old after a while, and the controls could be rather clunky, which was a drawback especially in the later stages of the game so Fester could not always escape enemies when it started to get overwhelming at certain points. It would also have helped if Fester had a bigger health meter. Otherwise, this was pretty good for a NES game.
