You Rang.

Yes, it's been done. Sunsoft's notoriously difficult cult classic game, Uncle Fester's Quest, has been beaten. It took over 10 hours and hundreds of quotes to keep our sanity, but Frank Tuminello, his brother Eric, and myself have kicked those pesky alien's asses. For those of you who haven't played this painful NES game based on The Addams Family character, the story goes as follows: Uncle Fester is sitting in a lawn-chair during a clear night moon-bathing, when all of a sudden, aliens attack! Everyone is abducted by these aliens except Fester and his family. It's up to you and your trusty gun to defeat the alien menace! The fact is, it seems as though Sunsoft made this game without proper testing before hand leaving us with many moments of "What were they thinking!?". The most notable of instances are the gun upgrades and downgrades (the fact that downgrades exist is mind-boggling enough), unless you have one of the last two guns, the weapons are essentially useless in tight areas; the whole game consists of tight areas. In any case, the game can be pretty fun after the annoyance wears off. It feels like a weight has been lifted off of our shoulders.
