Frank N Stein - Langford Productions new PC remake of a ZX Spectrum classic

We've just received word from our good friend Richard of Langford Productions, of a new PC remake that has since been released! From the creator of other remakes such as Cookie, Pssst, The Hunch and many others, this is a PC remake of the ZX Spectrum game ' Frank N Stein ', which was originally released way back in 1984 for the Amstrad CPC and ZX Spectrum by Personal Software Services.

In this game you must traverse each platform while picking up the skeleton bones to give life to your new monster. The problem is though is not only do you have to pick the bones up in the right order, but this must be done through careful timing, as if you jump on the wrong spring at the wrong time, you may end up screaming and dying in a puff of smoke from touching an enemy such as a snake. It really is that simple to understand, but don't think the game is as easy to play, as it really isn't. Overall though what I really like about this remake is the attention to detail, the crossover design from the original and the brilliant sound effects and music throughout the game.

As for the size of the game, the developer has said this one consists of 50 screens - 25 “main” screens where the professor must build the monster, and 25 “intermediate” screens with randomly generated meanies where the monster must be destroyed when it goes on the rampage!

So download it today from the website (here) and give us your thoughts, is this better than the original? ;)
