Frankenstein is a timed side-scrolling platform game. As Egor Woodenhead the player must collect all the body parts and screws needed to create infamous Frankenstein's Monster. The game area is divided into four locations - village, cemetery, dungeon and the castle - full of hostile peasants and animals. Contact with the enemies means a loss of energy, same as touching ground spikes and falling from high. They can be killed by jumping on their's heads. Egor may carry up two items at a time and supplement his energy by the contact with a blond haired woman walking through the village.
