The Adventures of Dr. Franken (NES)
|The Adventures of Dr. Franken|
The Adventures of Dr. Franken is an unreleased NES game commissioned by MotiveTime, developed by an unidentified company called Cygnus, and to be released by MotiveTime's parent company Elite Systems around 1993.
The player takes the role of Dr. Franken who must find body parts of his girlfriend scattered all over the mansion to attempt to resurrect her. An Elite worker told NES World that Elite did not like Cygnus' job and considered developing the game themselves, but decided to cancel it as they saw the NES market decline. At some point, Elite pitched a prototype to Kemco, which was found in the early 2000s. The exact game was ported to the Game Boy as "Dr. Franken".
The game was programmed by Mark Crane with graphics by David Percival and audio by Mark Cooksey.
There are only two songs in the game; one that plays at the title and another that plays all throughout the game. Both songs are real pieces of music originally composed by Johann Sebastian Bach and Ludwig van Beethoven. The title song is Prelude and Fugue in C Minor and the in-game song is Moonlight Sonata. Both songs, especially the in-game music are very long songs, and since the game can be completed in a short amount of time, the music doesn't get old that easily. The music was composed in Notator for the Atari ST. The Game Boy version uses the same music.

Like most of MotiveTime's games, this game does not have credits. We have contacted Mark Cooksey since he was the main composer for MotiveTime at the time and he has given us verification that he worked on this game's audio. He has also taken credit for the Game Boy version on his website.
This rip is missing songs.
