Frankenstein's Helper is a mathematical adventure game. You must solve various mathematical problems to advance. Sometimes you must move a character on a screen. You do this with the arrow keys, not the mouse. (This is important--remember it, because the instructions within the program are not very good.)
When you reach certain stages, you are given a password. Write it down because it will allow you to jump over the previous levels. It is unlikely that you will be able to finish the game in one sitting. By doing it level by level, you can get through it in a week or two. But to do it that way, you need to write down the passwords.
Frankenstein's Helper is intended for students in the 6-9th grade levels.
I wrote the first version of Frankenstein's Helper over ten years ago, and in the time since I have occasionally updated it. It needs another updating, but I do not know if or when I will find the time. (If you have any suggestions for changes, I would like to hear them. I do have some ideas already on how I would like to reorganize the program.) Until then, here is this version to play with. If you really like it, you can pay me by buying one of my Font CDs. They are Font Pro 2, Font Pro 3, and Font Pro 5, all published by Wayzata Technology of 21 Northeast Fourth Street, Grand Rapids Minnesota 55744. Call them at 218-326-0597, fax them at 218-326-0598, or e-mail them at info@Wayzata-Tech.com. You can visit them on the world-wide web at http://Wayzata-Tech.com.

I was able to unpack the hqx file and run the game, however it always crashes during a certain portion, right before you reach the lion on the Roman Numeral level. The game tests 6th grade level math so it shouldn't take too long to get to that level , but you can skip to the level by selecting "Jump", "Level 2", and entering the password "LIVY".
I tried messing with the memory size, cpu, different roms, etc, and nothing seemed to help. Can anyone please help to get this working? I'd really like to finally beat it!
