The gameplay doesn't hold up here. You can't kill any of the nasties, and they can catch up with you and kill you all too easily, which rather mucks up the arcade adventure aspect of the game. Read Review

Hints And Tips
Take the key on the wall of the first screen; find which door it fits!
Run through doors to avoid other monsters.
Find the Sanctuary and use the spade to dig up bits of bodies in the graveyard.
Walking in and out of the Sanctuary toggles between two different worlds.
Skeletons can be dealt with by smashing them into a heap with the pickaxe.
A cardiac arrest can be soothed by spending time in a safe or sanctuary area, where the heart rate will slow to normal.
In the dungeons, prisoners are chained to the wall. If you free them while they are alive they will run away. Each prisoner carries a part of Frankenstein, so club them dead with the pickaxe before you remove their chains.
When you have collected all the parts, you will be allowed to the top of the tower where Frankie's Dad is waiting for them. You also need a plug to switch on the machine.
