The Addams Family is a licensed platformer created by Ocean for the SNES, Amiga, Atari ST in 1992. It was ported to Sega Genesis in 1993. Ocean also created similar versions of the game for 8-bit platforms, like Commodore 64, Game Boy, ZX Spectrum, Sega Master System.

In the game, inspired to the movie of the same name released in 1991, you are Gomez, and you have to save the rest of the family: Morticia, Pugsley, Wednesday, Granny, and Uncle Fester. There is no shooting, this is a pure platformer, with a mechanic, in part, inspired to Super Mario. In fact, you have to kill enemies with a jump on their heads. But the gameplay is nonlinear and could also be defined as "Metroidvania." Gomez can explore the house freely, no need to follow a specific order. There are also plenty of secret passages and side levels. It's possible that a door that was leading to the room, the next time you open it will lead to another place. Which makes the task of visiting this vast mansion very hard.
