Dr. Franken was a video game released for Game Boy and Super NES by Elite Systems. It was titled The Adventures of Dr. Franken for the SNES in the United States.

The game features Franky, a Frankenstein Monster on a mission to collect the scattered body parts of his girlfriend.

Prototype NES and Sega Game Gear[1] versions were developed around the same time, but never officially released.


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